Why We Do It


Why We Do It

Founder and principal Jared Schoch created TPE to fill what he saw missing in the solar industry: a company people like to work for, clients enjoy working with and a workplace that balances purpose and happiness to transform the energy industry — at every turning point.

Our Mission

Why: Everything we do, we do to transform our energy future by creating freedom to choose a smarter, cleaner more flexible way forward.

How: We do this by investing in people who are our clients and our partners that create energy projects, technologies and companies to better the human condition.

What: We develop, advise and invest in solar, energy efficiency and emerging clean technology projects, companies and opportunities.

Our Values

Integrity: We do business the right way, every time. Our personal integrity, mission and our impact is more important than any monetary gain.

People: Our business is a collection of people that can do more together than any of us can do alone. We search out clients who share our values and that we can genuinely and positively impact. Collectively, we are a group of people who challenge and help improve each other.

Focus: Our team demands a privilege of focus, only taking on projects and opportunities that we can execute at the highest level and with the greatest success. We turn down projects and opportunities that stretch our bandwidth or distract from our focus.

Passion: We are passionate about giving our customers the freedom to choose, solving our client’s challenges, the environment and getting the future of our energy economy actualized in a smart and clean way.

Fun: We enjoy the work we do, we enjoy our clients and we make sure to have fun along the way. Our mission is as much about creating happiness for us all as it is about transforming the energy industry.

Balance: Our team is a group of recovering, driven, corporate workaholics who have come to the point in their lives that they understand the importance of balancing work and life in a very meaningful way. Balance allows us to be present with our clients and provide the most value by giving the most from ourselves as possible. It also allows us to want to stay engaged with each other and our mission for the long term.
