By providing quality products, designed to reliably operate for 25 years in real-world applications, every tenK employee is committed to delivering value to our customers.

Headquarters and Production

We have capacity to produce 40MW annually through our Bloomington, MN facility. Due to the extremely capital efficient nature of the tenK manufacturing model, this capacity can be easily doubled with three months' lead time. We have shipped systems to 22 US States and six foreign countries. tenK equipment is certified for grid connection in most major markets in the world.

A Customer Focused Approach

We're different than component suppliers. Because we make a system, we work with you on the design, provide all the material and offer full service support. Call tenK and find out - you can talk with the engineers, management and customer service. We all are clearly focused on helping our customers set themselves apart and succeed in solar.

A Better Solar Business Model

Unlike many PV companies which make a commodity product, tenK leverages conventional materials and processes to make a truly differentiated system. This allows us to offer competitive prices without the need for huge volumes. It's a smarter business model and one designed to last.
