Patrick Energy Services to hire 20-30 people in Novi

The green jobs are starting to trickle into Michigan now that Patrick Energy Services is expanding its presence in Metro Detroit.

The spin-off of Patrick Engineering specializes in energy systems for everything from smart-grid technology to alternative energy. The company currently employs 60 people in its Livonia office. It is in the process of moving to a larger office in Novi, where it plans to add 20-30 new jobs within the next few years.

"We took a good look at Michigan and decided to expand here instead of elsewhere," says John Adamson, director of business development for Patrick Energy Services.

One of the company's focuses will be on wind energy; specifically, helping to connect wind turbines to the grid. It hopes to expand into other parts of the wind farm sector as it continues to grow.
