SPI Energy acquires customer contracts from Petersen-Dean (filed for Chapter 11 last year)


SolarJuice American, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of SPI Energy Co., acquired the consumer contracts of Petersen-Dean, Inc., one of the largest full-service, privately-held roofing and solar companies in the US.

Petersen-Dean was generating $300 million to $400 million in sales annually with favorable profit margins prior to COVID-19. “Our acquisition of these consumer contracts could save thousands of US jobs that were in jeopardy following Petersen-Dean’s Chapter 11 filing in June 2020. This is also a major win for us as we work to accelerate our penetration in the vast US markets and create better renewable products and services for American residential customers,” stated Xiaofeng Peng, Chairman and CEO of SPI Energy.

Solar footprint: Founded in 1984, Petersen-Dean was one of the nation’s largest independently owned solar and roofing companies that specialized in new residential construction. At its peak, the company employed nearly 3,000 solar and roofing employees in nine states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
