Bright Future Ahead for the Renewable Energies Group
[Raleigh, North Carolina] — City Electric Supply is excited to announce we are expanding our support in renewables. After much national success in the utility/large commercial market, CES officially launches their residential division.
Kickstarting their residential service, National Renewable Business Development Manager Robbie McNamara is looking forward to the opportunities this new division presents.
“The industry has grown vastly over the last 10 years, and it’s forecasted to continue growing beyond the expiration of the ITC in 2022. This proves the price of the technology has come down enough that it’s readily attainable for homeowners and businesses to continue investing in renewable energy,” McNamara said.
The main hub for the Renewable Energies Group (REG) is located in Morrisville, North Carolina. Mason Phillips, who has 10 years of utility scale installation experience, operates the REG, and it is overseen by McNamara and Vice President of Operations Gary Smith. REG is vastly experienced in the utility/large commercial business. In the last 11 years, REG has supplied over 7 gigawatts’ worth of projects nationwide, from small residential/light commercial installations to utility-size solar farms ranging from two to 300 megawatts.
This success created opportunities that resulted in a new office in Dallas, Texas, which opened this spring, and a Florida office opening this summer, but the big leap is jumping into a purely residential/light commercial division.
At the helm of the residential division is Rob Smith. He has 10 years of residential/light commercial renewable construction experience with more than 800 installations under his belt that range from two kilowatts to 1.2 megawatts. He also holds a current NABCEP PV Installation Professional certification and Unlimited Electrical Licenses in North and South Carolina. The team is currently servicing Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia with Florida launching this summer.
“It’s exciting to see this continued interest in renewable energy at a residential level, and people want to do their part to help the planet. I think this industry as a whole is going to grow another 10 to 20 percent over the next decade even without the ITC. I imagine the government and various utility companies will draft more mandates and incentives that continue to encourage and reward the use of renewables to power homes,” McNamara said.
In addition to focusing on quality products, the Renewable Energies Group also has their eyes set on better serving their customers. With an already existing infrastructure close to 500 locations nationwide, central distribution facilities, and the ability to serve as a one-stop shop in the residential solar market, customers will find the service from CES unmatched.
“We pride ourselves on our customer service. Customers are returning because our level of service and expertise are second to none. From utility to commercial to residential, there is no other distributor, to my knowledge, that focuses on solar like we do in all aspects of the industry.”
An expanding business in an expanding industry will help create new jobs and new necessary knowledge for customer assistance. CES is proud to lead the pack in this cutting-edge industry.
