About West Tech Energy

We have a combined 40 years in Electrical and Solar! We are a second generation company run by Chris, Jesse and Andrew. Chris’s parents moved from Isle of Man, a British Island, in 1978 to La Jolla, California. His father established himself as an electrician in the USA, and then formed Burt Electric in Coronado in 1995. Chris grew up learning from his father and after graduating Clairemont High School he began working alongside his dad while also getting his bachelor’s degree and his own contractor’s license. In 2005 Chris took over the solar installation department.

Chris formed West Tech Energy by building the perfect team. Jesse has 25 years of construction experience and has been a solar superintendent and / or foreman for other leading companies for the past 10 years. Andrew graduated SDSU and held marketing and business development positions for companies such as Apple, Specialized Bicycles, Fox Racing Shox, RockShox and VQ OrthoCare. Andrew entered the solar market in 2012 and brings his years of experience to the team in the role of Founder / General Manager. This is how West Tech Energy was born. We are built on the values of our parents. We use the best installation techniques so our clients will have 25+ years of worry free operation from their solar systems.
