Since 2012, Seal Solar has been a leading solar-power provider in Arkansas, committed to promoting and helping others achieve energy independence. Josh Davenport and Heather Nelson founded Seal Solar as part of the Clinton Foundation’s energy-efficiency incubator program. To date, Seal Solar has completed more than 375 solar projects in the state, roughly one of every five projects completed.
Seal Solar offers full turnkey services. Whether clients need 10 or 20,000 panels, it can design and install a customized solution to fit their needs all in-house.
“We are there to help with every step of the process, from securing financing to working alongside the utility company to get an array connected,” said Rachel Zimmerman, the company’s marketing associate.
With its headquarters located in North Little Rock’s Argenta neighborhood, Seal Solar has also dedicated time and resources to Argenta’s continued revitalization. Davenport has helped lead the charge on keeping the area clean, green and safe as a board member of the North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce and as vice president of the Argenta Downtown Council.
Seal Solar has partnered with Habitat to Humanity to build energy-efficiency homes in low-income areas of the city. Furthermore, the company provided funding to Winrock International to host training sessions for Nepalese farmers to help increase their agricultural productivity with solar-water pumping systems.
