Man Solar Panel

Paul Zimmer, Senior – Owner

As the owner and founder of Detail Solar, Paul, Sr., grew up working on a farm. It was there that he earned the nickname, “Paulie the Detail Man” because of how he never overlooked a single detail while helping out. It’s a name and a mindset that stuck, and it’s one of the reasons he founded Detail Solar.

He received his degree in Electrical Engineering from BJU after which he did roofing for five years with his brothers. However, Paul always wanted to give back to the world, which is how he found himself on multiple mission projects in Micronesia. He quickly fell in love with the islands and the people, and so he helped them start up a school and put in multiple renewable energy systems using both windmills and solar.

Eventually, he decided to start up his own solar energy business, and he became only the second person to hold a NABCEP certification in the state of South Carolina. Now, he’s fully trained and certified for the industry’s leading manufacturers and continues to grow Detail Solar while giving back to those who need it most.

When he’s not at work or on missions, Paul, Sr., enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife, Sherry, who he shares 7 children with and now, a grandchild. You can find him enjoying some saltwater fishing, getting back to nature on camping trips, hiking, gardening, and helping his family.

It was at college that Paul, Jr., worked at a Christian camp each summer, where he helped with the maintenance and counseling.

Paul, Jr., picked up many helpful skills in his time helping out at the camp, such as construction, plumbing, electrical work, and the importance of working as a team. Now, he finds great joy in designing solar systems, helping his customers, and serving his co-workers.

Beyond work, he enjoys his marriage with Marikka, a lovely lady he met in Wisconsin and now lives with him in Easley. The two are owners of a gray cat named Kimchi and a duck named Mamma Duck. When he’s not helping customers, Paul, Jr., likes to spend his time fishing, camping, hiking, gardening, going on long walks, and always searching out the best new eats in the Upstate.
