Company Overview

King Energy is a next generation energy company.

We install solar power at multi-tenant commercial properties, such as shopping centers, office buildings and medical plazas, and provide the power we generate to the businesses at the property.

Our goal is to turn open rooftops into sources of clean, renewable power, and to do this in a way that generates increased rent revenue for property owners and lowers energy costs for tenants.

We have a welcoming culture that highly values intelligence and hard work.
