Established almost twenty years ago by a group of solar industry innovators and experts, SUNworks provides homeowners and businesses with the resources to design, install and manage their solar systems. Our experience in solar energy and solar panel systems means you have a proven company with the expertise and resources to save you from rising energy costs.

Taking this vision further by delivering value to the market, SUNworks recently underwent a company acquisition by Solar3D, Inc., a publicly traded solar company (SLTD)…SUNworks continues to work with all of its key solar partners to further the widespread adoption of solar power. This is achieved through deploying affordable, state-of-the-art systems for its residential, commercial, and agricultural customers.

Today, SUNworks is one of the fastest growing solar systems providers in California. We have proven expertise in delivering solar solutions from 2.5 kilowatts to 1.0 megawatt systems, and the capacity to deliver systems as large as 25 megawatts. Check out our work in our gallery!


At MD Energy, Inc., we have been actively involved in energy, infrastructure, electrical and building construction for a combined total of over 120 years. In addition to construction disciplines, the collective group also has experience in real estate acquisition, development and entitlement. Together, we have successfully incorporated environmentally friendly buildings, energy efficiency and energy projects into our  prospective companies as early as 1997. Our contractor license number was issued 20 years ago and we  recently sought a name and entity change to better reflect the current business model. With General Engineering, General Building and Electrical contracting licenses, MD Energy, Inc. is filling a niche in the energy business.  We are a General Contractor specializing in Renewable and Alternative Energy who self performs electrical construction services. This approach is very unique, not only in the General Contracting industry, but almost unheard of in the Energy Sector.

Solar3D, Inc. is developing a breakthrough 3-dimensional solar cell technology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Up to 30% of incident sunlight is currently reflected off the surface of conventional solar cells, and more is lost inside the solar cell materials. Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, our innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. This next generation solar cell will be dramatically more efficient, resulting in a lower cost per watt that will make solar power affordable for the world.

Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, Solar3D's innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. The company's management believes that this breakthrough solar cell will dramatically change the economics of solar energy.

The company’s analysis indicates that a typical 17% efficient solar cell performs more like a 5% efficient cell when light is shining 20 degrees from the side, such as during the morning and evening hours. The company estimates that its Solar3D cell can maintain its high 25% efficiency for a longer period of time and can generate 250% of the power output of conventional solar cells. This translates to an estimated 40% reduction in the payback period of a fully installed Solar3D panel array!

Solar3D Intellectual Property:
Pub. date: 29.08.2013
Appl. No: PCT/US2013/02691
Description: A three dimensional solar cell composed of a semiconductor body that has a substantially flat bottom surface, and shaped trenches formed in an arrayed manner along its top side. Thus, multiple pillars are thereby formed in the semiconductor body extending toward the top side of the semiconductor body. A light collecting material fills the shaped trenches along the top side of the semiconductor body and forms a substantially flat light receiving top surface parallel to the bottom surface of the semiconductorbody. Each of at least some of the trenches are structured such that there exists at least one point on the substantially flat light receiving surface that if a light ray is incident on that point, the light ray, if remaining within the corresponding trench, as opposed to entering the semiconductor body, will be redirected upwards at least after a fourth reflection on neighboring pillars.
Pub. date: 26.04.2012
Appl. No: PCT/US2011/056647
Description: High efficiency three dimensional solar power systems are disclosed. One example solar power system includes light collectors and first and second photovoltaic diodes arranged to receive light from the light collector. The photovoltaic diodes are in spaced opposition to each other to receive reflected portions of light from each other.
