Areas of Expertise

Professional Experiences

My professional experience includes working in China with partnerships and JV’s in the solar industry. I founded a company for vertically integrated manufacturers of low cost solar panels and was a pioneer in establishing low cost solar for utility scale deployment. I was the CTO of a company where I worked to develop technology for several multi-billion dollar businesses.

Relevant Experiences

I was the co-founder of a solar company and have designed many solar installations. I am familiar in detail with the design and operation of micro-inverters. I have even installed products made by Solar Edge. Over a year ago, I was a consultant for another micro-inverter company. Currently, I am not engaged with any micro-inverter companies and have no conflict of interests.
