Our story

YSM was founded in 2011 to address key pain points that we saw installers and contractors struggling with on a regular basis. Our mission is to simplify the interconnection and rebate processes and provide more certainty for obtaining permission/right-to-operate and rebate approvals. We now offer services to customers throughout the US. 

YSM will act as your representative/applicant in order to complete all applications required by the utility companies in order to quickly receive permission to operate (PTO) letters and rebate approvals. Our goal is to help you focus on sales and installation while we deal with applications, document management, emails, and phone calls with the utility companies and program administrators.
