NRGTree was founded in 2016 to address observed gaps in the renewable energy market. Our CEO and founder, TJ Caveney saw an opportunity to explore the market viability of an innovative platform that would connect property owners, pre-certified renewable energy technology installers, and lending institutions. Thus the online auction system OwnMySolar was created.

In response, NRGTree has focused on these very issues making it easy for commercial property owners to explore and embrace renewable energy. Today we provide free customized energy investment summaries to educate property owners on the incentives and benefits they could be taking advantage of. We then work for our customers to ensure that the renewable energy acquisition process is as easy as proposed, and gives them the best return on investment.
Today, we are able to offer our customers a comprehensive system design, including all of the latest renewable energy technology. NRGTree can provide energy investment summaries including:
Our priority is to understand our client's portfolio vision and then develop the strategy that positions them to capture all (direct and indirect) financial benefits of onsite local renewable energy power production.
