We Are SWT Energy

Commercial & residential solar panel installations. 

A Better Tomorrow

SWT Energy was founded in 2006 by Randy Schantell.   Randy is an architect with extensive knowledge in building systems to include structural, thermal, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, building codes, etc.   As a student in architecture, passive solar design became a field of study.   Passive solar and active solar systems were commercially marketable in the 1970's with the tax credits available at the time.  Photovoltaic systems were not even on the horizon at the time.   Randy designed several passive homes, greenhouses, solariums, solar water heating and space heating systems.  

In 2006, Randy saw an opportunity to offer similar systems with the addition of photovoltaic systems.  As the cost of the solar modules came down, the volume of business increased.   Today SWT Energy is a leader in solar installations in Nebraska.
