Utah — LGCY Power (pronounced Legacy Power) it has launched its first rooftop solar install office in Hurst, Texas, adding an additional business division to the rapidly growing national solar company.
LGCY has been involved in more than 40,000 residential solar builds prior to entering the Lonestar State.
The Silicon Slopes, Utah-based residential solar provider already has a presence in Texas and will bring more than 30 clean energy jobs to the Hurst location with additional cities and more Texas jobs to be added in the future.
“LGCY Power is pleased to be adding clean energy jobs to Texas, and even though we are based in Utah, we picked Texas first to give its citizens the electricity options they need after the power outages this past winter,” said Doug Robinson, CEO of LGCY Power.
The Utah-based company was started in 2014 by Doug Robinson & Luke Toone as a customer acquisition company for residential solar and worked exclusively in that capacity for six years.
LGCY has since grown to a presence in 30 states and selected Texas to launch the installation division. These are often referred to as an EPC, or an engineering, procurement and construction company for solar.
“The U.S. faces greater demand than ever on its electric grid as evidenced by the many power outages across the nation recently, and solar power not only helps alleviate that demand but also shows immense promise for sustainability,” said Alex Mortensen, President of LGCY Power and head of the team behind the solar installation division.
LGCY also recently added a veteran team to its staff to lead the expansion of its installation arm from its Utah headquarters, including Chris Iglesias as Vice President of Operations; Adam Bohe, Vice President of Supply Chain & Asset Management; and Brett Martin as Director of Field Operations.
LGCY has acquired more than 16,000 square feet of office and warehouse space for the expansion.
