SEBASTOPOL – Two years after establishing a corporate headquarters in Laguna Beach in 2008, Genesis Renewable Energy selected Sebastopol as home for its Northern California operations division. The firm opened an office at 101 Morris St. in August staffed with 12 employees.
The company was recently named as general contractor by Constellation Wines U.S. for the installation of the world’s largest combined solar project in the wine industry. These four projects, initially involving Clos Du Bois and Ravenswood wineries in Sonoma County, created more than 100 local jobs through the December 2010 completion date.
The company also is involved in another key project at the Northpoint Business Center to install solar for Northrop Grumman Corp., a firm purchasing clean energy through the Genesis proprietary landlord-tenant program.
Genesis specializes in turn-key, clean-energy solutions and serves as an energy consultant for its clients.
