Renova Energy, the Coachella Valley’s largest solar system installation company, celebrated the opening of their new corporate center building on October 6.
The newly renovated building, located at the corner of Cook Street and Hovely in Palm Desert, will house all the administrative functions of Renova Energy.
Political leaders who attended include California Congressman Raul Ruiz, Palm Desert Mayor Kathleen Kelly, and Council Member Jan Harnik, as well as Renova Energy founder and CEO Vincent Battaglia, Renova employees, Palm Desert Area Chamber of Commerce representatives, Renova customers, community leaders, and others. California’s Attorney General Rob Bonta shared a congratulatory message via video.
After remarks, the 400+ attendees were invited to enjoy refreshments and tour the new building. The newly renovated Corporate Center is 26,000 sq. ft., two stories, and contains space for continued expansion. The company currently stands at more than 350 employees and has recently expanded into Arizona as well.
“I’m so excited to have all of our departments except installation back under one roof,” said Battaglia. “We started in a single location and then as the company grew we had to expand to multiple buildings. It was exciting to find a building we could purchase and customize to house everyone. This move enhances our communication, customer service, and camaraderie.”
Renova Energy’s first commercial location was a small nearby building on Joni Drive that housed five employees. Since its humble beginnings in 2006, Renova has grown to a $70M company with more than 350 local employees and is responsible for the installation of more than 11,000 solar systems in addition to 1,000 batteries valley-wide. A SunPower Elite Dealer, Renova is among the largest privately held solar companies in California.
The mission of Renova remains the same as when it was founded – to provide a clean energy option for Southwest Desert families, businesses, and nonprofits through solar and batteries in a move towards total independence from utility companies through full microgrids.
