Meet The Owner: Derek White

Derek founded NWE&S after 10+ years working for companies such as Seattle City Light as an apprentice and a journeyman. Derek built the company from scratch on his experience, knowledge and superior customer service and has been rewarded with a perfect 5‐star rating on Yelp and the 2012 Angie’s List Super Service Award. Derek heads the residential electric division of NWE&S and is responsible for our standard practice of building systems better than to code. On the solar side, Derek is the main point of contact for City/State inspectors and the utility, ensuring that our field leads use best practice in each solar installation we complete. Derek spent his early life in Kirkland and now lives near Green Lake.

Being in the trade for over ten years, I decided to open up my own company because of the love I have for it. After wanting to learn about solar, I decided to get certified in installation and design. WOW! I have found another love for my trade. I love talking about solar and what it can do for people.

I have always wanted to learn and do something about solar in Washington, I went to get trained and certified in the field. I have found another love in my industry….. free electricity using the sun! As an electrician and solar installer, we can get the project done faster and less expensive than anyone else around. Basically cutting out the middle man in both projects. We can also figure out ways to drop the usage of watts in the home by using different methods of products in the electrical industry, lowering your house bills and “ going green “. I have always had a passion for my work and take great pride in the work that I do. I have always had great and long relationships with customers, contractors and inspectors. As an electrician, I can say that I can offer just about anything under the sun….
