PEP then met with Shell Oil who owned Solavolt (a division purchased by Solar World in 2003) and then later with Motorola managers who, at the time, co-produced solar electric modules under OEM for Phoenix Energy Products. Motorola Solar and Solavolt created solar panels for PEP in 1980 which were installed on the Navajo Nation. The selected Navajo families were provided with solar lighting, small TVs, refrigerators for medication, water pumping systems, and battery systems. By 1982, PEP Solar had installed over 191 solar electric PV systems, becoming the original solar panel installer in Arizona.
PEP also built energy efficient expanded styrene Hogan homes and trained the Navajos how to build them. At the time, Phoenix Energy Products was the largest residential solar electric installer company in the United States.
