Bernal Energy Services—a wind turbine implementation and maintenance service provider—is continually optimizing this wind energy infrastructure across the nation. The company’s team of highly-skilled, experienced, and certified engineers and technicians can quickly get the wind turbines up and running in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. They ensure that the installed wind turbines are able to deliver the best performance by providing robust servicing and maintenance support. Through its swift services, Bernal Energy is playing a catalytic role in empowering all the stakeholders in the private and public sectors to switch from fossil fuels to wind energy.
“Whether it is installing a wind turbine tower, replacing its components, or repairing its existing parts, we ensure our clients can unlock the full potential of their wind turbine installments,” says Gabriel Bernal, founder and CEO of Bernal Energy Services.
The One-Stop Shop for Wind Turbine Upkeep
Bernal Energy offers its support from the moment a client decides to switch to wind energy. It efficiently manages the commissioning, logistics, and construction of the wind turbines, ensuring that the structures are built to withstand extreme conditions. The company’s engineers, along with Gabriel himself, provide preventative and scheduled maintenance services 24/7, ensuring that the wind turbines are in perfect working condition and continue delivering an uninterrupted supply of power.
If and when their wind turbines stop working due to unforeseen mechanical issues, the clients can always depend on Bernal Energy’s emergency servicing to get their power generation units up and running in no time. The company also takes proactive measures against potential failure by conducting internal and external inspections. Any faulty components identified during the inspection are repaired or overhauled, whether they are uptower generators, rotors, or composite blades.
With Bernal Energy keeping an eye on their wind turbines, both individual house owners and business organizations are able to seamlessly meet their partial or complete energy requirements while also aligning themselves with the green energy revolution.
Enhancing the Performance of Electrical Systems
Bernal Energy’s services have also expanded to the electrical system servicing realm so as to meet its evolving needs with the proliferation of the wind energy sector. As wind energy substations emerge across the country to complement the electric grid with renewable energy, the infrastructure surrounding wind turbines is also changing. A number of complex electrical systems are being implemented to facilitate the transfer of wind-generated electricity to the grid. Therefore, there is a need for highly-skilled and trained electricians who can keep the components in the best working condition to facilitate the uninterrupted flow of the wind turbine-generated energy to the desired destination. Bernal Energy is meeting this demand by filling the long-standing skill shortage for high-voltage electrical system servicing and maintenance.
Bernal Energy’s work culture embodies the company’s vision to contribute to greater environmental sustainability goals by making wind turbine adoption easy
“Our workforce of master electricians and electrical engineers possess comprehensive knowledge about the electrical layout of wind turbine systems,” says Bernal.
The company can resolve the electrical problems occurring in wind turbine substations and the grid, including the inspection and repair of transformers, insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBT), convertor systems, slip rings, and turbine circuitry. Its electricians can also perform cable and wiring installation, terminations for lug crimping, and module changeouts. Owing to these capabilities, Bernal Energy’s clients don’t have to depend on multiple service providers. They can count on Bernal Energy’s one-stop offerings to solve all their wind turbine needs—whether mechanical or electrical.
Bringing the Sustainability Vision to Fruition
Bernal Energy’s work culture embodies the company’s vision to contribute to greater environmental sustainability goals by making wind turbine adoption easy. Its workforce’s dedication to quality service and customer satisfaction is inspired by Gabriel Bernal’s own work principles, instilled in him during his tenure as a lieutenant at a military boot camp. His employment in the oil sector, followed by his role as a technician at a major power and energy firm, further augmented his knowledge, skill, and expertise. These experiences, combined with access to a broad client base, served as the foundation for kick-starting Bernal Energy and bolstering it with a team of highly motivated leaders.
Notably, George Bernal Sr.—president of Bernal Energy— played a significant role in retrieving the managed service account (MSA) of a client, which secured Bernal Energy’s position in a client’s supplier list. The hard work of the company’s CFO, George Bernal Jr., and the partnership offered by Tony Garcia, founder and CEO of Keen Energy, is also empowering the expansion strategies of Bernal Energy and clearing its path to the helm of the wind energy sector.

The competencies of such a phenomenal workforce are reflected in a recent case study when a client needed to replace a critical component within their turbine. As dismantling the entire turbine just to change the part would be time-consuming and expensive, Bernal Energy’s team designed and custom-built a robust mechanism themselves. Using this, the team was able to replace the relevant component within 30 minutes.
The client was able to get their wind turbine up and running without having to spend excessive time and money. Such a near-instantaneous service approach is in stark contrast to industry-standard services that typically take several days to complete such a job. With Bernal Energy’s expertise, clients can also rest assured about safety and compliance, as each worker is equipped with the best protective and rescue gear at the site.

Bernal Energy ensures that its service offerings always stay relevant to the evolving wind energy space. Its technicians, to enhance their know-how on the latest development in the wind energy infrastructure, regularly attend conferences on wind energy—especially those organized by the American Wind Energy Association. The technicians also go through extensive training sessions and online classes on engineering and technical aspects to further bolster their skills and capabilities.
Such measures are helping Bernal Energy expand its offerings further into the electrical systems segment of the wind energy sector. As one of the ‘keepers’ of the underlying wind energy infrastructure, Bernal Energy Services is ensuring that the ‘green energy’ shift has a firm base to stand upon.
