Why establish a full service energy brokerage and consulting firm?
After an eleven year tenure at PG&E, Mike left the utility in 1994 to pioneer a better way. Mike’s vision included the development of a full spectrum of options and non-traditional solutions for energy uses. Since no company existed that embodied all of the disciplines that Mike wanted in his team, he founded the company that is now Spectrum Energy Solutions. By hiring only the best professionals and working with the best Alliance Partners in the business, the firm has sustained rapid growth and enjoys a position as an industry leader.
Does that complexity get overwhelming to Spectrum’s clients?
We believe that knowledge is power. Spectrum’s central theme for doing business is to make the complexities of the energy business seem simple to our clients. We are dedicated to spending time with our clients to make sure they understand their options.
Why does Spectrum offer such a comprehensive energy service package?
Our professional energy services menu brings the full Spectrum of energy-related disciplines together to give our clients options they never knew they had. This full range of options empowers our clients and gives them the tools they have long desired to manage energy costs. Our overriding objective is to find the right solution for each client.
Founder and CEO
Mike Jennings, Founder and President, has more than 30 years’ experience in the energy business. After an eleven year tenure at PG&E, Mike started a firm that could provide the pent up demand for comprehensive energy services: energy trading, energy engineering and energy accounting and analysis.
In his early years, Mike worked for the State of California as an energy expert to food processing and agricultural operations around the state. After completing his master’s degree in engineering from Fresno State, Mike worked at PG&E where he provided service to large customers in the central valley, contributed to the development of utility tariffs, and acted as the utility spokesperson.
Following PG&E, Mike managed a team of engineers and technicians at a civil engineering firm before starting Spectrum Energy Solutions.
In 1996, Mike began the firm by consulting with the same customers he had served at PG&E, extending them options that the utility could not deliver. Under Mike’s direction the firm grew to its present size of 14 people. In the course of events, Mike established strategic alliances with firms like Shell Trading, Constellation New Energy and Tiger Natural Gas.
The first 16 years has brought together the best minds, the best expertise and the top energy suppliers, forming a team that can provide a full Spectrum of Energy Solutions.
