HES Solar successfully implemented one of its major growth initiatives with the creation of HES Commercial, a new, independent, privately held clean energy corporation. The new company continues the brand’s focus on delivering energy independence, energy cost stabilization and energy cost savings to Southern California clients. Rapid company growth, including the formation of several new office and field career opportunities, sees the commercial group expand into an independent corporation.
In a news cycle of corporate acquisitions, downsizing and California layoffs, the San Diego-based green energy company is branching into two corporations as the overall employee headcount grows. New, San Diego-based jobs at HES Commercial will help California surpass its clean energy goals. Between HES Solar and HES Commercial, the newly formed corporations retain 100% of their current headcount along with several open positions still actively being filled.
The formation of the new corporation had been internally considered as a future initiative; company growth, combined with changes to California and federal solar tariffs and incentives, moved this new company formation well forward on its timeline. HES Commercial will continue working out of the Kearny Mesa location alongside HES Solar’s residential and service divisions. There is expected to be minimal disruption in the day-to-day operations of both groups.
“I’m excited to formally announce this new development of our brand,” said Ross Williams, owner and CEO of HES Solar and now also of HES Commercial. “For years we’ve worked very hard to develop each business unit as a standalone entity. After years of hard work we get to take that a step further and launch a new organization. The formation of the new company will help us to laser focus on each market and provide an even better customer experience. Even though we’ve been anticipating this development for years, it’s happening ahead of schedule because of the tremendous growth we’ve seen. I’m so grateful to my team for their incredible work and also grateful to our clients, both new and long-standing, for the strong relationships that make this possible.”
HES Commercial will continue its design, installation and expansion of the best-quality commercial solar, energy storage and EV charging stations in Southern California. HES Commercial will operate under the California State Licensing Board (CSLB) #1102539. The new company formation is expected to be completed by the end of Q2, 2023.
