When you think of solar in Long Beach, you should think of AMECO. Pat likes to tell people that we have installed the largest and the smallest solar heating system in Long Beach. A solar pool heating system for a community center and his daughter’s science fair project.
The fact of the matter is AMECO has deep roots in Long Beach. Our first and second offices were located in Signal Hill and Bixby Knolls. As we have grown, our offices became more centrally located to serve other parts of Los Angeles, but we install the most solar in Long Beach. Our president and CEO, Pat Redgate, and many other employees live in solar homes in Long Beach.
We’ll be honest, solar is not right for everyone, but you won’t know until you check. We’ll run a free solar analysis to see if going solar makes sense. We are not high pressure!
We’re proud that the work we’re doing is making Long Beach more sustainable. Solar helps reduce local emissions and prepares us for the future.
Our proudest installation was actually two installations with the California Aquatic Therapy and Wellness Center, known formerly as California Community Pool for the Handicapped. This nonprofit has been serving our community since 1956 and helps over 2,000 children and adults every year. Therapeutic pools are kept warmer and use a lot of a nonprofits resources to stay warm. Luckily, when we did the first installation for them in 1981, we were able to secure multiple rebates and incentives to make the conversion easy for them. This system heated their pools for 32 years, and we were able to help them secure a grant from the Port of Long Beach to replace their pool system. You can read more about the project here
