The Gem State Solar Story



Our company developed from a vision of a better world. Immersed in the construction industry, Michael Chadek, founder of Gem State Solar, believed that there were smarter, more sustainable ways to build and to renovate. He discovered that relatively simple devices that place little or no burden on the earth and its resources could outcompete conventional systems in both performance and cost savings. From that point on, it was all common sense. Michael decided to spread the word and Gem State Solar was born.

Our mission always has been and will always be to provide solutions that make a difference—for you, your wallet, and the world.



Located in Boise, Idaho, one of our favorite things about our job is that we get to meet many of the incredible people in our community. We are thrilled about the opportunities we’ve had so far to collaborate with individuals and local organizations to create welcoming, well-lighted spaces throughout the Treasure Valley.

Whether you live near or far, we think of you as a neighbor. This is the foundation for our promise to provide exceptional customer service, every time. Have a question or concern? Call us. We love talking with our valued customers. In fact, we love it so much that we will never outsource or automate our helpline—robots are great, but you won’t find them here.



With over 20 years of experience servicing both residential and commercial buildings, as well as the industry’s best warranty, you can be confident that you’re making the right choice when you choose Gem State Solar.
