The first idea of starting this venture occurred after Andy Lynch led a Design-Build Solar PV Project Development effort. This included the Pre-Construction, Design Development, Application Engineering, Product Selection, and Submittals for a 500kW solar carport for the U.S. Marines at Quantico, VA for a General Contractor and Electrical Engineer.
Bill and Andy saw the need, trusted each other, and founded the company. Brian Schmidt, former GEXPRO/GE Supply Sales Engineer, was asked to join as a Principal of the company and is now the EVP of Operations.
