Jimenez Consulting is a small family-operated business that was founded by Marcos Jimenez in April 2000. Prior to that, Marcos worked for San Diego Gas and Electric Company, as a Project Manager, Technical Trainer and as a Designer for 19 years (April 1980 to May 1999). Marcos was a “key role” in establishing and implementing certain design procedures at SDG&E, by facilitating and conducting technical training classes of which he assisted in creating the resource centers. The resource centers were formed with a small group of Technical Design Assistants assembled to support and maintain the consistency and standardization of the Design processes for each District at SDG&E. With that in place, he trained TSA’s, Project Planners and Designers. In addition, he also helped develop the Applicant Design procedures for processing projects and was one of the first Applicant Design Coordinators to monitor and help process applicant design projects. Furthermore, alongside his fellow co-workers of SDG&E, he also assisted in creating the SDG&E’s Distribution Planning & Scheduling System (DPSS) catalog for designers to be able to order materials and equipment within SDG&E’s internal mainframe system.
Marcos decided to leave SDG&E to pursue a position with Power Plus, as a Consultant and Design Team Supervisor, from May 1999 to April 2000. In 1999, Marcos became certified through SDG&E as a qualified Underground, Overhead & Gas Designer. Then in April 2000, Marcos decided to take the risk of becoming an entrepreneur by creating his own company by starting out of his home and doing what he had developed a passion for. Currently, as a San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) Applicant Designer, Jimenez Consulting understands and can offer versatility in all aspects of a project, including but not limited to, System Equipment Upgrades, New Business projects, Retrofitting, Conversions, Private Electrical Systems, Circuit Cutovers, New Prototype equipment, and Special Projects, just to name a few.
