About Hardy Diesel


Founder Hardy Day grew up in a small town in west Texas Called Knox City. At age 18, tired of picking cotton, Hardy went to Nashville and landed a job picking the stand up bass for Cowboy Copas on the grand ole opera. In the late 50's Hardy knew and mingled with all the best including Hank Williams 1st and Chet Atkins. Cowboy Copas died in a plane crash with Patsy cline in 1963. At the time Hardy had grown tired of a life on the road as a musician and needed a new career.

Hardy found work as a salesman in a business college and soon started San Diego College of Business. With plenty of Time on his hands Hardy was doing a lot of fishing in Baja California. In Baja, there is not much electricity available and what was available was very unreliable. In 1977 Hardy was in the market for a Diesel generator for his place in Baja. Problem was there were no Diesel generators available on the market at that time that were reasonably priced. He decided to build his own small diesel generator. After he built his first diesel generator his friends all wanted one. Word spread and before he knew it, he was the world's largest direct supplier of small diesel generators.

Seeing the need for alternative energy, in 2002 Hardy Solar was born. Hardy Solar's primary focus is on renewable energy for on and off grid electric solar systems. The off grid hybrid systems we design include high quality Diesel generators that will start automatically when the sun doesn't shine. We also package grid tied solar systems integrated with back up generators.

Committed to our environment Hardy Diesel is an award wining ECO friendly establishment. We only sell clean running fuel efficient EPA certified Diesel Generators that meet the strictest emission standards in the world. We are about high quality. You can not get a better generator for less.
