Local solar company recognized for Exceptional Service and Leadership 

HES Solar announced it has been awarded the 2021 Regional Residential Dealer of the Year at the 2022 SunPower Dealer Conference in San Diego. SunPower, a leading residential solar technology and energy services provider, honors dealers annually for consistently putting customers first while demonstrating exceptional industry knowledge and leadership. 

HES Solar has been a SunPower dealer since 2007 and has added over 25 million watts of solar power to customers in Southern California since 2001. This SunPower honor reflects HES Solar’s focus on providing the best quality  products, installation and customer experience. In 2021, HES Solar’s residential division doubled its installations and approached the annual number of kilowatts installed of the company’s strong commercial solar division. The residential division is focused on San Diego County customers and recently has expanded east into Riverside County and north into Orange County. 

“It’s a great honor to receive this important SunPower award,” said Brad Souza, Vice President of Residential. “Our numbers certainly show a great year, and we put customer satisfaction as job one. So it’s really gratifying to get the recognition of exactly that from the top solar company in the world. I worked at SunPower for many years so I know all the factors that this award represents. It gives it that much additional satisfaction to be on the receiving end of this designation.”

“SunPower dealers are known for their craftsmanship, quality and know-how,” said Tony Garzolini, head of sales at SunPower. “I’m inspired by the work of those that go especially above and beyond to show just how beautiful solar can be.”
