Standard Solar, Inc., a solar energy company, announced today that it is expanding its team to serve customers nationwide with new offices in Dallas, Texas and San Francisco, California (US). The expansion provides national support for Standard Solar’s distributed generation solar project finance and acquisition efforts and follows the Company’s recent announcement that it was acquired by Gaz Métro, a leading energy provider with more than US$5.8 billion in assets.
Directed by energy veteran, Brian Eisenbise, Standard Solar’s new Dallas office will lead customer support, full-service development, construction, integration, financing and installation of solar electric systems for the Central United States. Additionally, with more than a decade serving the channel market of the solar industry, Jason Feng will direct Standard Solar’s new San Francisco office leading customer support, financing and development for the Western US and Hawaii.
“Both executives bring deep expertise in development, distribution, manufacturing and strategic partnering in the PV industry. Their objective is to work with local and regional C&I developers, EPCs and other partners to provide them the support they need—no matter where they are in the solar project process,” commented Shaun Laughlin, Vice President of Channel Sales, Standard Solar. “Through delivering in-house financing, engineering, permitting, construction and/or maintenance support, we are expanding our U.S. market penetration to bring good projects to life, including solar PV and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) projects nationwide.”
In March 2017, Standard Solar announced that it was being acquired by Gaz Métro, a leading energy provider with more than US$5.8 billion in assets that is actively involved in developing and operating energy infrastructures and innovative, promising energy projects. Based in Canada, Gaz Métro is a diversified energy company that is active in electric distribution and production including solar and wind power, and natural gas distribution, LNG and renewable natural gas. The company is firmly established in the United States, with US$2.9 billion in assets in the U.S, and serving more than 315,000 clients through its various businesses and affiliates in the US Northeast.
