About Us

What We Do

Daylight Specialists is your go-to resource for your commercial daylighting needs. We have been working with architects, contractors, property owners, and other partners for years, to bring innovative daylighting solutions to commercial spaces since 2009. From consultation, planning, and design, through expert installation, Daylight Specialists utilizes state-of-the-art products and tools to develop daylighting systems that create brilliant, functional spaces from otherwise dark areas.

Daylight Specialists is the only authorized Solatube® commercial dealer for Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Western Wisconsin, and an authorized Sunoptics® distributor and installer for the Midwest. Unlike other competitors, we don’t have a long product line card. We focus only on daylighting, and our mission is to provide full-service daylighting solutions from planning and design through professional installation.

Our residential division, Solar Midwest, Inc., has been in business since 1993 and we have installed over 60,000 Solatubes over the years. Visit our showroom in Brooklyn Center to see over 35 Solatubes installed and on display. For more information, please visit our residential website at www.solarmidwest.com.

We can do it all or meet you along the way.
