What does the name HelioPower mean?
In ancient Greek mythology, Helios was the god of the sun, driving his chariot across the sky each day. The prefix, “Helio,” grew out of this reference to mean concerning the sun. Thus, HelioPower technically means sun power or power derived from the sun.
Since in a very real sense, all power sources ultimately derive their energy from the sun (including fossil fuels like oil and natural gas), we simply think our name connotes clean, renewable, affordable power.
Since 2001, HelioPower has engineered and installed more than 3,500 solar power and clean energy solutions for residential, commercial, community and utility scale customers and partners in the United States and worldwide.
HelioPower has an integrated suite of products and services. We are first and foremost an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company serving the residential, business and government sectors. In addition, we are also: (a) an owner-operator, owning outright more than 120 energy assets; (b) an energy asset manager with a large portfolio of energy systems under contract; (c) an energy operations and maintenance (O&M) provider to some of the largest developers in the world; (d) an energy finance company that raises and syndicates project finance for both our own and third-party energy projects; and, (e) a software and services provider with a proprietary energy analytics software platform called PredictEnergy™ to help our clients reduce the energy intensity of their businesses. We are a team of dedicated individuals working with a diverse set of tools across multiple customer segments, but united by the same mission: to reduce energy costs for our customers. We do this by improving demand-side performance and developing high performing energy assets for our customers, partners and investors.
Our heritage is rooted in the solar industry and we remain dedicated to increasing the use of solar power as a sustainable energy source and, in so doing, help our customers reduce or eliminate their electric bill. When solar is not the optimal solution, however, HelioPower deploys alternate distributed generation technologies to maximize our customers’ and investors’ return on investment.
At HelioPower, we take great pride and satisfaction in turning the promise of distributed renewable power, energy analytics, and demand-side efficiencies into the reality of energy cost reductions every day.
