SunRock Solar was founded based on the idea that renewable energy systems represent a viable and sustainable future for our communities. There is a limitless supply of sun, wind, and water energy available to us. Harnessing these resources to generate the power we need for our homes and businesses without polluting our environment is a sensible way forward for our energy future.

SunRock designs and installs renewable energy systems which perform with reliability and little end user maintenance and intervention. We take pride in our work, and satisfaction in the contribution we make toward a sustainable energy future for our customers and the community.


SunRock Solar designs and installs renewable energy systems in greater Cincinnati and throughout southwest Ohio, including Oxford, Eaton, Dayton, Waynesville, and Yellow Springs.


We catch the rays that are good for you.


Sol Systems provides solar REC (SREC) services to solar installers, homeowners and businesses to make solar energy more affordable & accessible.
