Meet our exceptionally talented team!

Our team is committed to bringing quality, exceptional work to the renewable energy field, and working to bring a brighter future to our great State of California.


From Fabrication to Technology to Field, to Administration.  Our world-class employees are the driving force of Energy Innovations, formerly known as Electric Innovations. We are a uniquely constructed community, forged together by our drive for excellence, our value for timeliness, and our downright intellect.  


The Fabrication Team is driven by their love of all things metal, music included.  Whether they are welding it or creating it, they are constantly pushing the lines and standards of their designs, delivering to our customers innovative consistent quality.


Motivated less by metal and more by automation, our Technology Team is a patient force. Their unequivocal attention to the detail that goes into the assembly of the dashboards and panels included in our PDCs, reflects their drive for excellence.


Our Field team is our literal boots on the ground.  On site from the beginning until the end, they are faithfully prepping, installing, and starting each PDC unit.


Lastly our Administration Team.   Where would we be without them? They are our "i dotters" and "t crossers." These paper pushers make sure the coffee is always stocked, bills are always paid, and whatever is needed is had.


Together we are contributing to the Biogas Revolution!”
