Contractor disclaimer

With more than a decade of corporate energy experience, Carla Walker-Miller started Walker-Miller Energy Services as a solution to a problem. She became the first black Detroit-based distributor, handling a complete line of major electrical equipment. In 1999, Ms. Walker-Miller began researching the energy market as an independent distributor. After months of talking with clients and potential supplier-partners, Ms. Walker-Miller developed a far-reaching strategy to address the traditional needs of energy suppliers. Walker-Miller Energy Services opened its doors in Detroit, Michigan in July of 2000 as a full-line distributor for ABB Power T & D Company.

Between the year 2000 and 2009, most of its sales were generated by products from a single manufacturer. Ms. Walker-Miller followed Michigan energy legislation and saw an opportunity for long-term growth with the passing of PA295 which required a 10% reduction in the consumption of Michigan Utility Customers. The company was able to transition its core business from a utility equipment distributor to an energy efficiency services company  while experiencing tremendous growth under Carla’s leadership.

With energy efficiency as its core business, the WMES team has grown to over 100 employees and tripled revenue. Carla and the company she has built, exhibits resilience and unwavering tenacity to keep moving forward despite challenges. As Founder and CEO of Walker-Miller Energy Services (WMES), Carla is a dedicated advocate for providing sustainable, efficient solutions to residential and commercial clients in efforts toward energy efficiency.
