San Diego Solar Company Powers Outdoor Summer Concerts with Solar Power

Rock with Renewable Energy


Local San Diego Solar company, Home Energy Systems is powering San Diego summer fun with solar power this year. We are proud to announce we will be providing clean, renewable energy to power the Bird Park Summer Concerts in the Park. The North Park Community Association puts together this wonderful community event that brings an eclectic mix of sounds and a surplus of summer smiles to local residents and visitors alike. In the past, NPCA has hired out gas generators to power this sound spectacular and that’s were we came in. We’ve been bringing solar to San Diego since 2001. As one of the oldest and most experienced solar companies in San Diego county, H.E.S. wanted to get down with our local roots. Our business started in 2001 in San Diego and we only install residential and commercial solar systems in San Diego County.

Solar CartWe want to bring awareness to local communities on the benefits of renewable energy, energy conservation, and the value of supporting local businesses. Companies that operate and service your community give back to your community. The mix of all these things is what this partnership is all about. While we reached out to several community organizations that put on outdoor concerts throughout San Diego, the NPCA was one of the few who saw the vision and value of our proposition (which is upwards of $400 a concert!). Sometimes you need to be a little bit progressive to get it but, it’s clear that solar power saves on noise and emissions, and it saves on expense as well.

We would like to do a lot more of these kinds of events, supporting local community and promoting the adoption of renewable energy sources. We could spend our budget knocking on doors and annoying you during dinner like “the other guys” but like San Diego,

Home Energy Systems likes to keep it classy, from how we share our services to how we install top tier solar energy systems.

We sponsored some fun events last year, like the RAZA Car Show in Chula Vista and the Julian Music Festival with our larger mobile solar trailer but found it to be overkill. We could have powered a weekend at Burning Man with our large trailer so H.E.S. founder, Martin Learn, created a more functional and park concert appropriate version for easy maneuverability and placement. If you have questions about solar anything, this is the guy to speak to. (Buy “guy” I mean, retired physician turned solar expert and enthusiast.) Martin has won awards for solar innovation, is on the board of CalSEIA, and he, himself depends on quality solar power as he and his wife live off-grid in Julian. Martin will be in attendance at the concerts beginning June 25th to answer any technical solar questions and our Customer Liaison, Phillip Salas will be present on the 11th.


The the outdoor summer concerts take place in North Park in Bird Park. They kick off this Saturday June 11th in the evening at 5:30 and goes until 7:30. Home Energy Systems will be there supplying solar power for the band and passing out goodies to promote our spin on the ageless mantra “Renew, Reduce, ReCycle.” Renew, for us stands for solar and other sources of renewable energy. Be sure to stop by our booth for your reusable snack bag to bring to the next concert in the park. We’ll be out there rockin’ with the band every other Saturday throughout the summer. See the full band line up and concert dates below.
