Meet Hemal Doshi of Universal Solar System in Plano

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hemal Doshi.

Hemal, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My story is a story of successful American dream. Sheer persistence and hard work are all it takes to be successful in America. I came to this country from India in 1997 with virtually nothing in a pocket to study in the USA.

I worked all kinds of odd jobs (I flipped burgers, worked as a security guard, washed dishes) to sustain myself and finish engineering school. I started a career and a family. I worked hard, received guidance from amazing mentors. Eventually, I pursued Business school with a job and family. After I graduated from business school, I started many successful business ventures. Universal Solar System was established almost ten years ago and is the most rewarding of all.

We enjoy making a difference in people’s lives. The benefits of solar panels not only help reduce energy costs for families but are better for our environment. We have been blessed to have extremely happy customers and this feels like true success.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It never is a smooth ride! But I believe that the more struggles you have, the more you learn and enjoy your journey. I remember my first business, poured my heart and soul into it, but it failed miserably. Through this experience, I learned very important lessons in life. If you run fast on the wrong road, you will reach a failed destination quickly and hard. The more time you put into planning at the beginning, the less you spend later in avoiding failures.

I remember my 2nd business which I still own. We planned it well. Three years of relentless struggle, but it worked well in the end as it was planned well. Today, I own a successful multi-million dollar business in solar industry, technology and finance, that I love. Working for the community and trying to give back to society is rewarding. The road was bumpy but well worth it.

Universal Solar System – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We are premier solar installers and solar is our expertise. We save the environment while saving money for our customers. Our process is to build custom solar panel systems for clients (residential and commercial) based on real electric usage. We offer detailed proposals that cover how many solar panels a client will need, what percentage of their usage will be offset with solar energy, and exactly how going solar would benefit them and our environment.

Our solar expertise is unmatched in the industry. Our top-notch customer service and our ability to manage any size projects are what sets us apart! Our implementation process is one of a kind. We have an internal installation crew, and each member specializes in solar installation. We also have a Master electrician on our team that overlooks all projects in detail. Because we solely focus on solar in every aspect, you can trust that we are the best in the industry.

What were you like growing up?
As a kid, I was very active. I loved taking part and playing an active role in multiple events. My organizational skills always helped me participate in as many events/activities as possible and I will always be thankful for that experience early in my life.

I love reading articles and consider myself a lifelong learner. I also enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. My kids are teenagers!! My wife and I have a great time exploring new destinations with them. As a family, we love visiting new places. When I am not working, I am with family and friends spending quality time with them.
