Gary Gage is a Former Ferris State University professor and has built Sunshine Solar & Construction, hoping to provide an additional resource for area residents who are interested in installing, upgrading or diagnosing solar energy, wind or hydro-power systems.
Gary, was a professor of automobile engineering technology and automotive machining at Ferris State University in Michigan, and he became interested in solar power many years ago while working with alternative energy systems for the automotive hybrid and electric vehicle program. He attended various schools on the subject and worked for several high-end solar installers in Michigan.

Formerly Sunshine Solar and Wind
I was very pleased with this project from start to finish, I also recommended SS&W to a few of my neighbors, they too were happy with the work performed. The biggest comment from them was the quick response they got on their service needs.
Gary and Amy are up-front, honest and thorough. Always kept me informed of schedule and work being done daily. Great work and very satisfied with finished product. No problems encountered.
Gary, of Sunshine Solar and Wind is meticulous and efficient. He treated my solar job as though he was performing the work for a beloved grandmother. His attention to detail is only surpassed by his continued service after the install. Best of all, he’ll call you back within 24 hours. Thanks Gary!
I can't say enough good things about Sunshine Solar and Wind and its owner Gary Gage. Gary installed a 8.4 KW grid-tied system at our home last summer together with a thermal drainback system for floor heating. Working with him was effortless. He quoted a reasonable price and schedule and stuck to both. His installation was done meticulously and the total system is working well, as advertised. After the installation, Gary has been back several times to answer questions and verify that everything is working well. And now Gary is NABCEP certified, the only one in our area who is, as I understand. I would recommend Gary and Sunshine Solar and Wind to anyone considering solar.
Sunshine Solar not only recommended components for my application, but explained what we could expect from those components with real research about our solar location and the existing components already in place. They provide high quality components at a reasonable price, and did an excellent job with the install. Thankfully, Gary talked me out of buying the panels on my own for a modestly cheaper price, as one of the solar panels installed failed to generate the expected voltage. They came back out, checked the panel and replaced it on the spot free of additional charges. The system that was installed is producing better than anticipated and Gary has followed up on the install to ensure everything was operating correctly and to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend Gary Gage and Sunshine Solar and Wind.
Simply an outstanding job by Sunshine Solar. The owner, Gary, promptly responded to my email request to come over and give us a quote on replacing our old solar panels and upgraded the wiring and junction box. We accepted his very reasonable quote. He, and his assistant, showed up on time and completed the two day job under budget. All the work was precise and top notch. Gary is a perfectionist and that is what I wanted for solar/electrical work. He is very knowledgeable in the math/physics of solar and electric which is refreshing. All work done to code. Highly recommended.
Gary, the owner of Sunshine Solar and Wind was able to design a system that would meet our needs for an acceptable price. He did an impeccable installation of the system and connected it to our home via internet. On occasion, when there was a glitch with the power company, Gary solved the problem quickly. I will definitely chose Gary to do the expansion of the system or the install in our home in Colorado Springs!
