A beautiful day and a warm welcome from the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and local community helped make our June 16th ribbon-cutting ceremony a fun-filled event for all who attended.
We were joined by the Direct Energy Innovation to Inspiration (iTOi) Mobile Exhibit at the Fashion Fair Mall to talk about the importance of solar energy and provide insight into the future of smart home technology. Several members of the community came out to tour the exhibit throughout the day and local radio DJ, Gnarley Charley from 93.7 Kiss Country helped MC the event with giveaways, games and prizes. Our introduction as Fresno’s newest solar installer also included a job fair and roundtable discussion for those interested in joining this exciting and growing industry.
Mike Wilson, property Manager of the Fashion Fair Mall, spoke about the importance of solar energy and highlighted the fact that the mall is currently benefiting from the advantages of going solar and serving as a shining example of the positive impact this remarkable technology can have.
Direct Energy Solar is excited to open in Fresno and bring a new approach to going solar to the community through various local programs and partnerships. In addition to providing new options for going solar, we also plan to hire 50 new employees through the end of the year to facilitate our growth and cement our commitment to the best little city in the USA.
