HES Solar is a local, family owned and operated, full-service solar company that was established in San Diego in 2001. Since our founding, our main focus has been to share the financial and environmental benefits of solar renewable energy with both residential and commercial clients. Our solar experts use the best quality solar arrays from SunPower to provide energy systems that are designed for durability and results. We also use SunPower and Tesla for battery storage to provide maximum energy storage for your home, business, or electric vehicles. All of our installers are certified by SunPower, Tesla, Enphase, and BYD and we don’t subcontract our installations. We are committed to customer satisfaction and provide top-tier support to all of our customers. We specialize in turn-key implementation of money-saving alternatives to utility power that includes design, installation, and monitoring:
Mr. Puebla grew up in Los Angeles where he earned both an Associate of Science degree in Architecture from East Los Angeles College and then a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management from Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. Mr. Puebla was drawn to the solar industry by its constant innovation coupled with his desire for a career that would make a difference; he’s interested in emerging technologies applied to new ways to harness the sun’s energy. Working in the solar industry since 2009, Mr. Puebla’s path led him to HES Solar in 2021 where he now applies his philosophy of providing the perfect solar solution to clients’ energy needs. He appreciates HES Solar’s company philosophy of supporting its employees so that they can succeed and is excited to further grow the strong reputation HES Solar has been building over the past 20 years. In his time away from the computer and solar arrays Mr. Puebla is a youth soccer coach. He enjoys helping young players develop their soccer skills and he’s also been known to relax at a Dodger’s game or two.
After earning a degree from the University of State of New York, Excelsior, Mr. Miller launched his energy career under the sea aboard the USS Houston Los Angeles-class Naval attack submarine as an Engineering Watch Supervisor. Post-Navy, Mr. Miller remained in San Diego and built his 25+ year career in project and operations management. Mr. Miller’s core competencies found their way to the solar industry in 2010 where he brought positive practices in VP and Director roles. Jay Miller then brought his successful philosophy of constant improvement and increased efficiencies to HES Solar in 2021 to grow and foster the residential division’s rapid growth as more homeowners discovered the quick and steady financial payback solar provides. Mr. Miller was drawn by HES Solar’s strong reputation for top quality and customer satisfaction and is excited to help guide the company’s continued growth.
Mr. Shemai joined HES Solar and helped accelerate the company’s strong 2021 growth. He grew up in Cincinnati and doubled-majored at Ohio State University in Business Marketing and Spanish Literature. Mr. Shemai stepped from the university commencement ceremony in Ohio almost directly onto the beach sand of San Diego in 2007. He has worked in the corporate world while also following his entrepreneurial drive in 2012 by creating and growing an active wear company with designs based on and inspired by the culture of Thailand. Mr. Shemai has been a sales consultant for fourteen years; applying that experience to the solar industry gives him great satisfaction by bringing the financial and environmental benefits of solar to more homes. When Mr. Shemai isn’t helping families plan and design their ideal solar system, he can be found surfing, sailing, climbing, running, SUPing, snowboarding or even playing the musical instrument “the hand pan.”
HES Solar places safety as our highest priority, and that extends from our employees to our customers, to anyone else we may potentially be in contact with through the course of business. Along with the safety procedures we adhere to in the normal course of our work and projects, we have instituted several safety protocols for all of our employees during these times of vigilant public health precautions due to COVID-19.
Our employees are given temperature checks each time they enter the office, and office visits are only allowed when necessary.
We’ve instituted remote working for all of our employees who are able to perform their job duties at home. Meetings are done through virtual meeting rooms.
Field employees maintain a six-foot distance between themselves and fellow employees, customers, vendors, and all others unless unavoidable.
Masks are required whenever interacting with fellow employees, customers, or the public and whenever social distancing is not possible.
To ensure these procedures can be met, employees have been provided with face masks or face coverings, eye protection, gloves (as necessary), and foot coverings (as necessary).
To help ensure frequent sanitizing, employees have been provided sanitizers in the form of gel, liquid, and wipes, antibacterial soap, and paper products for cleaning such as tissues and paper towels.
