SoCore Energy

Quick Info
Humble, Hungry, Smart Our Motto Our motto is simple and it’s who we are: “Humble, Hungry, Smart.” It speaks to the energy, the attitude and the talent we bring to every day, every job and every solar solution we deliver. What Does It Mean? Humble When you are humble, you listen to your customers. You put genuine care into evaluating their needs. You take their concerns seriously. Arrogance—the assumption you can do no wrong and have all the answers—has no place in customer service and no place at SoCore. We let humility and accountability shape our work. Hungry Growing our business is important to SoCore. It’s why we put unrelenting effort into developing solar energy opportunities that align with our clients’ energy needs and financial goals. We are always on the lookout for opportunities for our clients, minimizing their workloads and maximizing the efficiencies they gain from solar energy. Smart In the construction industry, there is no law of averages. Everything has to be flawless. That’s why we recruit and employ a team of brilliant, licensed engineers and meticulous project managers. Their skills and experience ensure that every minute detail of a project is carefully executed. For this reason, we are always recruiting the best and brightest engineers to our company. - See more at:
