WHY NOR-CAL CONTROLS?

We’re a tight-knit band of power generation professionals. Collaborative. Compassionate. Sincere. Many times Nor-Calians (that’s what we call ourselves) will say that working here feels more like being with family than with coworkers. And when you spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week with the same people, genuinely enjoying the people you’re surrounded by makes a big difference.

We are fiercely passionate about our company culture, and because of this we look at all aspects of overall fit when hiring new employees. We do this because we know that happy employees make sure our clients are happy too. As our founder Bob Lopez says, “What we do isn’t special. How we do it, is.”

The state of California alone accounts for over a third of the U.S.’ total solar generation, so when it comes to being a part of this industry’s historic boom- there truly is no place like the Golden State.

And we know what you’re thinking. When someone says California, you might imagine palm trees, overpriced housing, traffic jams, and Patagonia-clad techies at first thought, right? While these images do exist (we won’t lie to you), we like to think of the Sacramento area as a gold mine for career, educational, and recreational activities.

Sometimes we like to say that one of the best parts of working at Nor-Cal is what you have access to outside of the office.

Most weekends Nor-Calians can be spotted exploring the many nearby hiking and biking trails, and campsites. We are only a short hour away from iconic Lake Tahoe, North America’s largest alpine lake. You don’t have to tell us that we’re spoiled, we already know it. We are two hours away from the San Francisco Bay Area and 30 minutes from downtown Sacramento if city life is more your vibe. If all of the above doesn’t make you want to rent a U-haul and start your move tomorrow, Northern California is also famous for its temperate climate, meaning you truly get to experience all four seasons and enjoy our region’s vibrant cities nearly any day of the year.

So now that you know what Northern California really has to offer, we have just one question: are you ready to start your next adventure?
