About Greenspring Energy

In 2007, Paul Wittemann started a solar electric, and energy efficiency company that he named: “Greenspring Energy.” Now four years later in 2011, that little start-up has landed on the Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest growing companies at number 15.

How it all started….

When faced with moving across the country to Colorado for the EcoStar Corporation, Paul Wittemann, now CEO of Greenspring Energy, decided to leave his job and start his own company.

“What sealed the deal for me,” explains Wittemann, “was when I called around to Baltimore/Washington area solar contractors and no one returned my calls. That’s when I thought ‘I can do better, I have to do better.’” From then on Wittemann set out to start a company that focused on the customer, not the bottom line.

Wittemann started with $50,000 in savings, an “executive office” he found on Craig’s List for $500 a month in Towson, MD; and got to work getting certified.

“I spent the first 6 months in training, learning about the industry, and figuring out what brands I should offer.” The new entrepreneur was working 6 and 7 days a week, doing everything from getting certified to creating marketing materials. In October 2007 it all paid off with his first big month; installing 4 systems.

From there the company grew quickly, adding a Pennsylvania branch in Reading in 2008, and in 2011 expanding down to Charlotte, North Carolina. What started as one man in cubical, in four years has grown to 57 employees in three different branches across the mid-Atlantic… a growth of 8,700 percent!

The Greenspring difference….

“The reason we have been successful is because we’re different,” said Wittemann, “we don’t just sell you a solar electric system; we become your solar partner for life.”

This is why Greenspring is committed to selling only the highest quality brands, with the best warranties, and most dependable product lines. Partnering with such distinguished names as “Schuco,” “Solar World,” and “LG” give Greenspring and its customers the confidence that comes from knowing their system was constructed with the most technologically advanced and responsible methods available on the market today.

“Anyone can sell a solar electric system,” said Larry Chaput, sales director of Greenspring, “we are selling an energy solution, combining solar and efficiency, specifically tailored for each customer to lessen their dependence on the utility companies and those ever increasing rates.”

Since the beginning, Greenspring has believed the best way to accomplish that is a “marriage” of solar electric and energy efficiency products.

“We create systems designed to “produce and reduce” if you will,” said Chaput, “as the most effective and environmentally friendly means of getting consumer’s utilities bills as close to $0 as possible.”
To do this Greenspring has put together a team of energy auditors who exist to teach customers ways they can improve their homes energy consumption; saving the owner’s money and reducing their environmental impact all at the same time.

“When we go out to a home for a free site evaluation, we always suggest a Home Energy Audit. It’s not enough to just start producing energy; people need to learn steps they can take to make their home more efficient as well,” says Wittemann.

The Difference for Consumers….

Solar by itself is a wise investment, but Greenspring Energy’s unique combination of solar and energy efficiency take return on investment to the next level.

“With all the great tax incentives, both state and federal, available for people going solar, combined with our packages of solar and efficiency, many of our customers see their system has paid for itself in as little as 3 to 5 years,” said Wittemann.

Homeowners are not the only demographic catered to by Greenspring. Many small businesses are also taking advantage of the savings from solar.
“It [solar] really is the coolest thing,” says area sales manager Frank Sullivan. “I have this guy in Baltimore who owns a Driver’s Ed school. He wants to do a full solar array on the roof to feed to a charging station for the 2 electric cars he just bought for his students.”

With over 1,300 solar installs to date, and four years of experience creating custom energy solutions for its customers, Greenspring is a company you can count on to get it right.

“Yes we have expanded and grown and that’s great,” says Wittemann. “Do I think someday we might be a nationwide company? Maybe. But right now we are really just focused on being the best.” That, it would seem, is the REAL Greenspring Energy difference.
