We are enthusiastic about the inexhaustible energy that can be harnessed from the natural environment; specifically, the sun. We understand that energy use is of the greatest importance to us all, which is what drives us to supply that energy to users across the globe. The single most efficient energy sources are those that are renewable. Such sources are sunlight, wind, water (as waves or through dams) and geothermal heat. Current technologies allow for all of these sources to be tapped and supply us with clean and renewable energy to power our daily lives. Solar collection technology has advanced greatly since the first solar panels were developed in the 1960’s and continues to progress since its inception.
These time-tested methods are what we strive to supply to our customers, from backyard lighting to commercial power requirements. We are educated in the earth sciences and architectural fields, so efficiency and program is carefully executed by our staff. All projects are considered as top priority as we aim to empower our customers and help them achieve independence with their renewable energy products from utilities and large-scale energy plants. The capabilities exist to achieve these ends, and we are here to see them through.

Mario Villalobos, Principal of SolTek Renewables
Certified graduate of the Turner School of Construction Management
Born and raised in Southern California, Mario grew up with and saw first-hand the potential and persistent source of energy that is obtainable from sunlight. Sunny throughout the year, this region is ripe with solar energy collection and has motivated Mario to pursue that collection and offer it to customers through solar technology applications.
After graduating from high school, Mario pursued his studies in Oceanography at Palomar College transferring to Humboldt State University in Arcata, CA one year later. While there, he embarked on an exchange program to study Physical Geography at the University of Zimbabwe in Harare, Zimbabwe. Along with the Geography courses, he enrolled in Shona language and culture for a 6 month period. After his studies at Humboldt, he moved back to San Diego and worked as an EMT for over 3 years before going back to finish his Bachelor degree in Architecture at Woodbury University. While there, he emphasized his studies and projects with a focus on green architecture and passive design.
Professionally, he began work in the real estate industry as an escrow assistant in 2002 while pursuing his degree at Woodbury. After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture, he continues to work for an independent escrow company in southern San Diego County. He has a firm knowledge of science and design of green technologies/solutions with the added experience of working with real estate professionals over the past 10 years. With this solid background, he was one of the principals in starting and maintaining an on-line company selling garden solar lights and products since 2009. With SolTek Renewables, he has branched out to supply customers with large-scale/commercial applications of solar and green technology solutions. The anticipated market is expected to expand to overseas clients to empower customers at the global level with energy generation revelations ranging from solar lighting to the on-site production and storage of electricity using alternative and renewable energy sources. The current line consists of solar-generated products with supplier warehouses in the Southern California region.
