About Us

Black Platinum Solar & Electric is a family-owned and operated company founded in 2007 to meet the solar electricity needs of Arizona’s homeowners. We’re based in Phoenix and serve the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.

While our first three installations were central inverter systems, we early on made the decision to support Enphase Energy microinverter technology…the best choice for our customers. Our first such installation activated in February 2009. As of June 9, 2011, our 60 grid-tied, Enphase Energy microinverter PV systems have produced in excess of 1.24 Gw (giga watts) of electricity.

The Black Platinum Promise You Can Trust

At Black Platinum Solar, we are committed to our customers. Our promise is to:

  • Ensure that you have all the information needed to make an educated decision
  • Fully understand what you want and your usage requirements
  • Keep you informed through every phase of the installation
  • Provide the best possible solution for your project (large or small)
  • Offer only the highest quality materials and most reliable technology
  • Install your system with the greatest care and workmanship
  • Enable you to reduce your carbon footprint while producing the electricity to run your home

Customer service is the heart of our promise. And it all starts with two-way communication. We’re accessible. We’re also reliable. We deliver on every promise, and we don’t walk away from a complicated install. Even if your PV system requires the installation of panels on five different roof planes and the change-out of your electrical panel…it’s no problem. As a Black Platinum Solar customer, you become our Number One priority.

Turnkey Service Leaves You Worry Free

As a turnkey service provider, Black Platinum Solar handles everything required to install your PV system. We will submit your utility application, design the PV system, obtain all permits, install the system, and supervise the interconnection to the power grid.

Meet John Black

Back in November 2009, realtor Jeff Cameron caught up with John at a McDowell Mountain Ranch homesite. He recorded this impromptu interview with John and posted it on YouTube.

We are passionate about what we do because we are eager to do our part in helping to save our planet, and we believe that solar energy is a smart and productive way to reduce our carbon footprint.
