Company Overview

Our History

Since our inception over 28 years ago, Energy Solutions has been dedicated to addressing  climate change by transforming the clean-energy space through our innovative market based solutions. Our mission, staff, clients, and the communities served through our programs and services have always been at the heart of what Energy Solutions does. 
From our beginning in CEO Sam Cohen’s home office in 1995, we have focused on practical solutions that have the most impact possible. Since then we’ve not just evolved with the clean-energy industry; we’ve driven change within it.

Our Culture

Our people are why we love to come to work every day, and why our clients love to work with us.

We’re mission-driven, not ego-driven (remember, we started in a home office). Our growing team of employee-owners across the country are bright, passionate people who are invested in our mission and our future success.

Who do we hire? Our founders look for smart, motivated people with “good kindergarten skills” — curiosity, respect, teamwork, and a While healthy sense of fun.We help our employees grow through mentorship, professional development, and countless opportunities tocontribute to the team. Many of our senior leaders rose through the ranks because we invested in their potential.

While shared values unify us, we also know that diverse experiences and points of view makes us stronger. We work hard, support each other, and don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility 

We live out our mission day in and day out by helping our clients and communities generate clean energy solutions the world needs. Our success is dependent on developing a team of creative thinkers, innovators, and a workforce that reflects the diversity of our world. To that end, we’re committed to hiring, promoting, and retaining a diversity of talent, and infusing inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (IDEA) throughout our business. We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds and all walks of life to apply. Come grow with us at Energy Solutions!  

Professional Development

We value curiosity and support lifelong learning. Our employees take advantage of annual stipends to improve their skills for the future.

Community Engagement

Our employees’ passion for sustainability doesn’t stop at work. Many of us volunteer after hours to support environmental and community causes.


We believe in investing in the success of our individual members and love to help them flourish. If you are passionate about protecting and improving our environment and want to work hard alongside other mission-driven people, let’s talk!
