J. W. Peters never intended to be in solar.
“The truth is that it was 100% by accident,” the president of Solar Power of Oklahoma (SPO) said in a recent conversation with Enphase.
“But in hindsight, it was all meant to be.”
In 2017, J. W. co-founded SPO with CEO Kevin Jones to help homes and businesses reduce their utility costs and environmental impacts through sustainable, innovative solutions. As proud native Oklahomans, both men wanted to build a business that was rooted in Oklahoma and dedicated to serving its communities.
Six years later, SPO has evolved to be one of Oklahoma’s premier local solar installers, with thousands of residential and commercial systems installed across the state. It was ranked the #1 Solar Contractor in Oklahoma by Solar Power World from 2019 to 2021, and it won The Oklahoman’s Readers’ Choice Award for the Best Solar System Company in 2020 and 2021. Headquartered in Oklahoma City, the company is locally owned and operated, and it remains dedicated to expanding access to the lasting financial benefits of renewable energy solutions.
