Many solar installers are looking ahead and seeing the need to evolve and diversify beyond just installing solar. POWERHOME SOLAR, which is currently operating in 15 states and has more 2,100 employees, including a commercial division, is officially announcing its evolution with a new identity and some bolstered services.
The new name, Pink Energy, will go into effect on Earth Day on April 22, and embody the company’s commitment to the entire energy efficiency ecosystem.
“Our team is excited about launching a new name that is more relevant today and reflective of the evolution of our company,” said Jayson Waller, CEO of Pink Energy. “Though solar energy remains our primary focus, we believe in the entire energy ecosystem which includes backup battery systems, solar energy products and smarter energy solutions, even LED lighting.”
The name change is the first of many positive steps customers and employees will see over the coming months and years, which include:
- Expansion of the Customer Experience team and a renewed commitment to improving customer service
- 10-year labor workmanship warranty (previously 5 years)
- Digital customer portal being launched giving new customers real-time insight into project status and timelines while providing existing customers a post-install communication and support tool
The company grew from the original 30 employees in 2015 to more than 2,100 employees today in 2022. Nearly 1,500 employees were hired over the past two years of the pandemic. Despite global hiring challenges, POWERHOME SOLAR continues to hire hundreds of employees in one of the fastest growing industries in the United States.
“We’ve grown a lot over the past few years and are looking toward the future,” Waller said. “We are excited to roll out a new name that better suits us while we roll out new benefits for our customers and new growth opportunities for employees.”
Since 2020, POWERHOME SOLAR has been a distributor of equipment from Generac Power Systems. Pink Energy will continue to provide homeowners with a complete energy package that includes Generac battery storage components that are compatible with virtually all solar panel installations.
