Company History

Our long-time #1 Senior Sales Rep, Patrick Winberg, came up with a name for our company, “California Energy Contractors” (CEC) which was incorporated on July 1, 1999.  In January 2000, CEC, leased an 800 sq. ft. office on Woodman Avenue in Arleta. Inna Khalfin made first telemarketing calls. Steve Khalfin was the first Sales Rep. Igor Morgenstein created the first pitch book. Lynn Morgenstein began to utilize QuickBooks to computerize accounting and payroll.

The first payroll to each owner, Steve and Igor, commenced on September 1, 2000. Alex Yudkevich officially joined CEC as an equal partner on April 1, 2001, and that same day, CEC expanded its operation by leasing an under 3,000 sq. ft. office and warehouse space at Cabrito Road in Van Nuys where it operated for over 5 years.

CEC’s two key employees were hired in Spring of 2002. Jacob Milman as a General Manager and Henry Toro as an Installation Crew Chief. Henry was promoted to Installation Department Manager in 2004. In 2006, another key employee, Elle Ortega-Fariaz, was hired as an Assistant to the Human Resources and Payroll Department. Over the years of her employment, she has been recognized as the Right Hand Assistant to all Five Owners of CEC. In 2016, Elle was promoted and assumed an Office Manager position with CEC.

On May 1, 2005, CEC relocated its operation to a three-parcel 14,200 sq. ft. corner building on Burnet Avenue and Stagg Street in Van Nuys. In order to survive the economic hurdle, CEC downsized and sold one of the three parcels known as the Burnet Building. On June 5, 2009, CEC moved its administrative office from Burnet Building to the remaining two-parcel 9,200 sq. ft. building known as the Stagg Building where it has been operating its business ever since.

“I am so pleased with the work this crew did on my house. They worked very hard and followed up on anything I asked them to do. They made sure I was satisfied with the way they were working. Ed did a walk through at the completion of the work with me. He is very personable and wanted to be sure everything was the way it should be. The workers all took pride in their work. California Energy Contractors can be proud of the people that are working for them.” Virginia A.
