Synergy in energy
Clark Crawford, Vice President Sales and Business Development, Solar Energy Business Unity Soitec
“It has been my pleasure to work with Karen Hutchens and the Hutchens PR team over the past year in establishing Soitec as a market leader in the United States. Hutchens PR has been an integral part of Soitec’s team in providing support for our U.S. business goals, including establishing support for Soitec’s initiatives with the California Governor’s office and CPUC, providing strategy for the swift approvals from the CPUC for our PPAs, and in providing community relations liaison with businesses and economic groups to gain support for our development projects in the San Diego region.”
Carl Atallah, President Chevron Mexico
Hutchens PR was instrumental to us in developing a compelling strategy and masterfully executing so that all of our stakeholders were thoroughly educated on our Baja California project. We were successful in obtaining all project approvals and making many long-lasting relationships in the community.

As SDG&E strives to be the first utility in the U.S. to convert its entire service territory to Smart Meter technology, we needed a customer-centric communications plan to support successful deployment. Hutchens PR’s integrated approach to external communications programs and activities has become a defining factor to our success. The vast majority of customer responses have been positive and our stakeholders remained engaged throughout the entire process.
Few industries play a more critical role in the global economy than the energy industry. Yet few industries are as complex, misunderstood or scrutinized. Our work with the energy industry began in the late 1970’s in working with broad-based community organizations to obtain approvals for power plants, transmission lines, substations and gas facilities.
Over the past 25 years, HPR has delivered results on a broad range of assignments for energy companies and industry coalitions. We have a deep expertise in helping energy companies create and maintain productive dialogues with audiences critical to their success, including legislators, regulators, customers, suppliers, investors, employees, communities, consumers, the media, and various advocacy groups.
From siting local energy projects and crisis support to coalition development and media relations, we have developed successful communications programs that deliver results for our clients.
