James Kennedy is the owner of Beach Cities Solar Consulting LLC; an education based solar consulting firm that works with home owners, business owners, corporations, and municipalities to help them go solar and save money.  James has consulted on over 100 residential and commercial solar installations throughout California, New Mexico, New York, and Puerto Rico.  James splits his time between Manhattan Beach and Puerto Rico and cares deeply about protecting the environment for future generations and getting America off fossil fuels for good.  He is very active in the community as a Big Brother mentor and Manhattan Beach Rotarian.  


Beach Cities Solar Consulting LLC was founded on the idea that "solar sells itself".  Our mission is to educate the property owner about the benefits of solar energy empowering them to act in their own financial interest and the interest of the planet.  After seeing several companies in the solar industry go out of business due to high "soft costs" like using call centers and high pressured sales techniques James saw an opportunity in the marketplace to take a different approach to marketing and selling solar systems.  As an education based consulting company we market to property owners through education based seminars and work exclusively off of referrals and word of mouth introductions. 


Beach Cities Solar Consulting LLC does not install solar systems.  We have an open architecture approach and work with several reputable solar installers locally, throughout California, and all over the United States.  This unique approach allows us to utilize our industry experience in recommending the best solar installer for a particular project.  In the Commercial and Corporate markets each project is competitively bid out to ensure our clients are receiving optimal pricing from a quality company that will be around for the long haul.  Put our experience to work for you.      


Beach Cities Solar Consulting LLC donates 5% of annual profits to environmental and social organizations that help protect and preserve our planet.  Beach Cities Solar Consulting LLC is a member of the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce, Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce, and Palos Verdes Penninsula Chamber of Commerce and is proud to support the local business community throughout the South Bay.
