Our Story

Our prime directive is to bring environmentally friendly solar power to as many people on planet Earth as possible.

ETM specializes in solar energy systems. We install solar electric systems and solar hot water heaters on residences and commercial buildings and repair existing solar energy systems. We also sell small wind turbines.

  • ETM is a woman-owned business.
  • We have been in business since 1988.
  • We use what we sell. ETM is solar powered.
  • ETM’s web-site is on a solar powered server.

ETM President, Dr. Gay E. Canough, is one of the founding members of the New York Solar Energy Industries Association and instructor for over 200 Solar Installer courses.

We started out doing aerospace consulting work (ETM is short for Extraterrestrial Materials). Our main claim to fame in space business was the conceptual design of the Lunar Prospector, a small robotic spacecraft that orbited the Moon in 98-99 looking for water at the lunar poles. We also worked on space solar power for the Space Studies Institute in Princeton and NASA.

In 1993 we decided to bring the resources of space to Earth more directly and go into the “terrestrial” solar energy business (solar energy being a valuable and easily accessible resource from space!) Since then, we have installed over a 2 megawatts of photovoltaics in New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
