Pioneering technology for the planet since 2009.
With his considerable technical experience spanning from software to semiconductors, SolarPod founder, Mouli Vaidyanathan started his business, Mouli Engineering, installing conventional solar systems. Though he was moved by the industry’s potential to promote clean energy, he immediately realized these traditional systems and their methods of installation may be doing more harm than good. From the raw materials they consumed to the damage they inflicted to the structures on which they were installed, these systems needed a serious overhaul in order to provide real benefit to the planet.
Mouli set to work developing and patenting a racking system that used less harmful materials and required no drill holes, even finding a willing friend to serve as his initial test case. From this proof of concept, SolarPod has grown to represent the gold standard in solar technology. With over 1000 installations completed today: flat roofs, sloped roofs, residential homes, commercial properties, SolarPod has done it all. They continue to challenge the industry status quo by improving environmental impact while bringing their customers elegant, non-invasive solutions. It’s revolutionary solar, made radically simple.

PhD, PE, Mouli has over 20 years of engineering experience in state of the art semiconductor yield engineering, failure analysis, and product design. He earned his doctorate at University of Wisconsin-Madison in Metallurgical Engineering, with his undergrad degree in production engineering from the College of Engineering, Guindy. Both degrees were attained with full scholarships.
Passionate about renewable energy, Travis joined SolarPod to share that fervor with the masses in hopes that everyone will choose to harness the power of the sun. He resides in Hopkins, Minnesota with his wife, 2 human daughters, and dog daughter. If looking to consider Z-Rack or Z-Lite for your home or business, feel free to reach out to Travis at 763-489-1611 or TravisT@mysolarpod.com.
As a spirited environmentalist, Kati joined SolarPod to boast about Z-Rack & Z-Lite and provide a best in class customer experience within the Solar Industry. Kati spends time outside of SolarPod traveling with her fiance and downhill skiing.
Committed to making a positive impact for the future, Ivan was thrilled to join SolarPod and help implement engineering solutions to power our communities with solar. Originally hailing from Illinois, Ivan completed his undergraduate studies in engineering at Augustana College. When he’s not working on solar-related projects, Ivan enjoys playing guitar and spending time outdoors.
Josh is a recent graduate from the University of St. Thomas in Mechanical Engineering who is eager to learn the ins and the outs of the growing solar industry. He is starting full-time at SolarPod and is excited to help home/business owners migrate to a renewable and more sustainable method of energy consumption. Roll Tommies!
