PureLight Power is a Solar Company in Medford Oregon well known throughout the Rogue Valley for offering affordable solar energy solutions. “For me, the big thing is the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit,” says Franks. “The way that we operate our business is to treat our employees and customers right. We can also do what’s right for the planet while also operating a profitable business.”
Franks comes to PureLight Power with a long-standing commitment to community engagement. He serves as the Board President of the Ashland Solar Coop and was appointed by Governor Kate Brown to serve on the Board of Trustees for Southern Oregon University (SOU). At SOU, he helped to Spearhead multiple new solar installations across the SOU campus, raise more than $1,000,000 for sustainability initiatives through the SOU Green Fund and Launch the SOU Farm, a Center for Sustainability.
In 2013, Franks founded the nonprofit Rogue Climate to empower the Southern Oregon communities most impacted by climate change. With an annual operating budget of more than $1,000,000, Rogue Climate organizes for clean energy, sustainable jobs, and a healthy environment.
Shaun Franks lives with his wife and two sons in Ashland, Oregon. He recently finished making his 1998 home net zero, meaning that it produces all the energy that it consumes in a year. Among other things, Franks installed a twenty-five panel solar array, ductless mini split for heating and cooling, heat pump water heater, and insulation far above code. He also utilizes solar electric driving with a Tesla Model 3.
