The Origami Team

We are a passionate group of solar veterans, technologists, and inventors who are always looking at existing products and processes as inspiration for those innovations that increase functionality, value and dramatically lower costs. You know those ideas that after the fact people say, “I can’t believe I didn’t think of that” or “how did it take us so long to change that!”
