Dwight “Andy” Anderson

Dwight has a Bachelor of Science, from the University of Southern California. Dwight is involved in a number of ventures from real estate to manufacturing. Today his primary focus is Palomar Solar as the C-10 license holder, President, and one of the founders of Palomar Solar.

After a number of years of looking into solar for his own home, the investment finally made sense. However, during the research, he determined there were very few companies who truly understood what they were selling.  In fact, the field was so thin that he decided to start Palomar Solar.

Dwight’s diverse background allows him to understand a wide variety of our customer’s needs from the financial rewards to the aesthetic considerations. He insists that Palomar is dedicated to impeccable service, value, and honesty.

Fun Fact about Dwight: Dwight enjoys spending time with his family, especially his beautiful wife Roxanne and his two daughters, Alex and Morgan. He loves boats and enjoys spending time in the desert.
