The value of reliable energy
While Omar has spent most of his life in Southern California, he and his family lived in a small village in Lebanon during his teenage years. There, he experienced energy insecurity firsthand, with electricity for as little as six hours a day.
“We would celebrate when we had water, electricity, and telephone service all working together at once,” he recalled.
When he returned to California for college, Omar had a newfound appreciation for the value of reliable electricity. Through Treepublic, Omar aimed to provide a service that would give people the peace of mind and freedom of reliable energy.
He fondly remembers one of his favorite Enphase home solar and battery projects because of the customer’s genuine happiness with the completed system. The customer’s house was located in an area prone to grid outages, and having continuous power was very important to the family. Treepublic replaced the home’s malfunctioning backup system with an Enphase Energy System, powered by IQ Batteries and IQ Microinverters, large enough to back up all of the home’s critical devices. Omar’s lasting memory is of the homeowner’s relief and gratitude for the critical power that will support his family for the long-term.
Even after completing thousands of installations, Omar continues to be inspired by the positive impacts that Treepublic’s systems have on its customers’ lives. “So many projects were special because of the people we met and how happy they were with our service,” he said, smiling. “Every time we turn on a system, we get the same gratification. Every time we fire up a battery and see no flickering in the lights – it doesn’t get old.”
