An intentionally small business that ensures personal attention to your project.
Meet The Home Team
A Local Solar Energy Team Designed to Support You
One of the reasons Home Team Energy exists is because we saw what was happening in a rapidly expanding solar industry. When companies get big, their teams balloon and customer service becomes standardized (and, too often, substandard).
Your energy situation is unique to you, and that means your service should be too.
That’s what we mean by an “intentionally small business.” If we’re so big that our owner, Ryan Lettau, can’t personally meet with you—we’re too big. This way, we can tailor our services to your exact needs so you never feel unsupported before, during, and after the process of upgrading to solar energy.
Meet Ryan Lettau, Owner of Home Team Energy
Ryan established Home Team Energy in 2019 after a decade of experience in the solar energy industry. After graduating from Milwaukee School of Engineering in 2008 with a degree in Architectural Engineering, Ryan first worked for a roof consulting company where he incorporated solar into the existing business model.
After that, he moved on to a solar development company in 2010 and saw how rapid expansion led to a collapse in attention. Larger teams with more jobs over a larger region meant less time per client.
So in 2019, with a garage full of solar panels, Ryan started a family business called Home Team Energy. His wife Shelly worked with permitting and logistics, and his young sons help with clean-up and washing the trucks. Together, they began a company designed to maximize support and service for their clients.
After seeing how businesses can focus more on profits over people, Ryan—and now the team too—is on a mission to show that hard work, integrity, and treating people with dignity and respect should be the real focus of a successful business.
In 2022, the Lettau Family added a Tesla Model Y to their fleet, which is powered by their roof mounted solar array!
