NOVA Consultants’ alternative energy work creates 20 jobs

NOVA Consultants got its start nearly 20
years ago as an environmental engineering company. Since then the
Novi-based firm has transitioned to construction management, and most
recently to an alternative energy firm where it has really hit its
stride.

NOVA Consultants beat out dozens of other firms, some much bigger, in 2009 to become one of the companies managing DTE Energy’s SolarCurrents
program. Since then it has hired more than 20 people, expanding its
staff to 35 employees, 15 independent contractors, and 1-2 interns. Most
of them are working on solar energy projects.

“It provided numerous employment opportunities in Michigan,” says Sunil Agrawal, president of NOVA Consultants. “One hundred percent of the work we do is in Michigan.”

NOVA
Consultants now considers itself a renewable energy services firm and
is riding that wave to significant growth. It plans to continue working
with the SolarCurrents program through its second phase, a move that
should allow the company to double its revenue and add another 20 jobs
over the next year.
