Ray was one of the first “solar experts” Brian relied upon in the early years, and after stepping away from the solar world for a bit has agreed to be a part of the team once again. With a passion for green energy and a desire to see the Ontario economy and the rest of the planet benefit from the use of solar energy, Ray started his career in the solar industry with the launch of the Ontario Green Energy and Green Economy Act 2009. Initially spending two years with a German solar firm to learn not only the business of constructing solar projects but also the technical aspects of PV design. In 2011, with a partner, started a photovoltaic oriented engineering and consulting firm to help developers and installers build better quality and lower risk commercial solar systems in Ontario.
Working on 500+ residential and commercial solar projects over the last ten years, Ray has developed a clear process for evaluating solar technologies, determination of site requirements/constraints, development of engineering designs, project management, construction quality control and final project commissioning. Balancing financial requirements, quality and risk for clients have always been key to his approach in working on green energy projects.
