Eric Thomas - Founder & Chief Solar Officer at Simple Solar Living

Hey there!

I’m Eric Thomas, the founder and primary guy behind Simple Solar Living.

I first got interested in solar power during a science project in middle school and have been fascinated ever since. Once I became a homeowner I immediately saw the advantage that products like solar powered lights had over wired or battery powered devices.

At that point, I dove head first into learning everything I could about going solar. I learned everything I could about how solar powered products work, and I eventually began conducting tests to see if the products truly did what the manufacturers said they would. (As you may have guessed, some performed better than others). To further my knowledge of the industry I even took part in the Solar Energy Technician program at Bryan University.

In addition to my passion for DIY solar projects and I’m also an experienced blogger and knew that there were tons of people who could benefit from all the knowledge I’ve gained about solar products and DIY home solar projects. So I combined my experience as a blogger with my passion for solar energy and launched this blog to share my expertise with you!

Since launching this blog in 2021 the solar industry and the availability of ready-made solar products have exploded, which is fantastic! More solar products means less reliance on fossil fuels and more reliance on clean renewable sources of power!

My goal with this blog is to help you find the information you need to go solar, the products to power your life, and the knowledge to cut ties with traditional power as much as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and I welcome you to connect with me on LinkedIn.
