About the Founder

Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Jason C. Gideon, the founder of Energy Consultants Group, LLC and I wanted to take some time to tell you a little about myself and how Energy Consultants Group was founded.

As third generation design builder my focus has always been in the construction industry with a heavy focus on sustainability. After receiving my degree in Computer Aided Design and another in Architectural Design I worked with my father in the family business. Valuable experience was gained in operations and the art of construction. Working 10 hours a day I still found time to continue my education and received my Horticulture degree.

Shortly after I started my own path on designing and building sustainable homes with my company, Advanced Designs. For years we provided high end near-zero energy homes. I had some opportunities designing and building co-generation coal plants and large utility scale wind turbine projects in Iowa and Illinois. I also was involved in several large R&D projects for solar. With over 180Mw of experience in production and distribution of conventional and renewable energy, it primed me for being the premier solar energy provider in Iowa.

Recently I completed another degree in Energy Production and Distribution and obtaining my NABCEP credentials. I was asked to teach for this program and currently now teach the solar aspects within this 2 year program. I certainly enjoy teaching others and leading the way for them to discover the benefits of solar energy. I continue to teach on the credit side of the program and continual education program.

I’m truly passionate about solar and our business model. I approach each client with a heart of teacher and simply provide the facts. I don’t over sell or over promise. I act in what is in the best interest of my client and focus on providing high quaintly products and services.

Energy Consultants Group was founded by the same family business model that has sustained products and services for customers for more than fifty (50) years. Our business model is unique in that we focus on only providing the highest quality solar products and using highly qualified professionals. We sell only Tier 1 solar products, typically all superior American and German components. We are in the business of producing clean, reliable energy; not selling the cheapest system.

Relationships with our clients are long-term partnerships; our clients expect us to be in business for the life of their system. As a result, our business model does not include providing low-price, poor-quality products to simply make a sale. (In our opinion, a business model that reflects lowest cost — rather than high-quality and value-driven products — is certainly heading for a path of doom.)

We strive to provide our clients with the latest technology and also invest a great deal of time and money in continuing education, training, and certification of all of our professional staff. We contribute to the industry by providing valuable research and development of products while partnering with organizations to protect and promote the solar industry. We make a substantial financial commitment in investing our profits back into the company, its team members, and technology ... all used to provide and support our award-winning services.

We subscribe to the adage: “You get what you pay for.”


Mission statement

Our company is a leader in providing value-added professional services and solar products to our customers by creating a successful partnership with them throughout the project process.

Our pledge is to establish lasting relationships with our customers by exceeding their expectations and gaining their trust through exceptional performance by every member of the project team.

“Jason and his team from Energy Consultants Group, LLC did a wonderful job with our solar install. The process was extremely easy on our end as Jason took care of everything. He is extremely knowledge about solar power and made us feel comfortable with this decision and our choice to go with his company. So far we have been very happy with the entire process and highly recommend them!”

“We really appreciated your approach on the installation of the rack and panels. It is strong and symmetrical and has a neat appearance.”

- Bob Wyatt


“ECG was a great partner in our residential solar project. ECG worked hard to help us through each step. ECG did the little things to help a novice through the process. I received my first bill with banked hours last month.”

- Chuck Bries


SteveSusieKennell.jpg"The solar array design, installation and products are doing exactly what we planned for. We are generating electricity that slightly exceeds our needs for our home and building. The products that were installed are very good and operate as advertised. The installation was as planned and all of your team’s work got the system commissioned as planned. You provided all the support required to get the city and electric company approvals and again we are very happy to be the proud owners of a renewable energy production resource. You were also instrumental in making sure we had all the required paperwork and forms to apply and obtain the associated federal and state tax credits.

We have and will recommend your company and team to anyone who asks.

Thanks Jason"
