In 2009 itek Energy’s Founder, John Flanagan, inspired by the challenges presented by carbon intensive energy sources, chose to take his skill in manufacturing and apply it in the most tangible manner possible – build solar panels for Washington in Washington! After 4 years of research and investment the dream of itek Energy was born. In the first year of production, itek built over 7,000 panels, amounting to over a megawatt of solar built and installed in Washington itek has grown from a founding team of 3 to over 20 full time employees. With continual upgrades, we now have the production capacity to produce more than 60 megawatts of solar power per year, making us the largest solar manufacturer in Washington State.
From the start itek’s focus has been to utilize quality and cost savings provided by bringing precision robotic assembly and proven lamination technology to local manufacturing. itek’s designers and engineers are long time Washington locals and are passionate about solar. We build solar panels that are tailored for our Northwest weather. From the record setting snows of the North Cascades, to the strong and persistent winds of Central Washington, to the damp defuse light environments in the coastal regions, itek Energy panels are built to last and produce power regardless of where you live in Washington.
