About Us



Total Solar Technologies, LLC is a family owned and operated business success story working in Rigby, Idaho. (The same little town where television was invented). The family has been heavily involved in prepping for 25 years and solar energy for 20 years, even living off grid completely for 7 years in the mountains of Montana raising their kids. (Yes, most of the kids were home schooled.)

Total Solar Technologies, was started in 2013 as MyLife Solar when Roger designed and built emergency solar backup units because there wasn't any on the market that would do the things that he wanted and felt people needed. As sales took off due to word of mouth advertising, the name was officially changed to Total Solar Innovations, LLC in 2014.  

Over the next two years, TST experienced explosive growth and soon found itself competing Globally.  Because of international trademarking, TST needed to get a new name.  Total Solar Technologies was chosen because we were starting to explore and develop some new technologies and it seemed to better describe where we were heading.  So in June 2016 Total Solar Innovations changed to Total Solar Technologies.  TST

TST is now gaining increased recognition around the world as designers & makers of the worlds best portable solar systems and Innovative alternative energy solutions. 

Roger started the company literally in a garage and designed the systems. He has installed solar systems in Montana, Utah, Arizona, Idaho and has been a part-time inventor-idea guy all his life. He has developed several innovative energy systems including a solar hydrogen generator for houses. He has an extensive background in computers, software, systems analyst, and systems management including working for Word Perfect and Novell. He is also a successful international author and lecturer about Preparedness and other topics.

Units are manufactured in Rigby, Idaho and are now being shipped all over the world.
