Since co-founding PEG. in 2012, Joe has helped more than 600 households achieve greater levels of energy independence by utilizing clean solar energy and battery storage technology.

Joe and his wife Rachel married in 2011 and have five children: Grace, Lydia, Michael, Isabella, and Gianna. In 2011, the Ordias made the decision that they wanted to be prepared as a household. During a time of crisis, whether it be a natural disaster, economic collapse, cyber-attack, or war, they did not want to be dependent on the government or any other institution to take care of them. Simply put, they wanted to be able to take care of themselves. The Ordia's currently reside in Central Virginia in a home that is 100% capable of running off-the-grid using solar + battery storage. PEG Solar installed the family’s renewable energy system in 2018. Joe is not just the President of PEG Solar; he is a client also. Joe and Rachel are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He is passionate about helping homeowners achieve energy independence and empowerment in a variety of ways; whether by eliminating/reducing homeowner power bills from giant monopoly utility companies or establishing a renewable backup power source for their home in the event of an emergency, solar can do both! Why rent your energy when you can own it! Additionally, Danny enjoys working with clients that are electric vehicle owners and want to have a clean and self-sufficient way to fuel their vehicle, as he too is an EV owner.
