NEW YORK, NY | GREEN STREET SOLAR POWER —
Solar industry veterans Scott Kerner and Jason Kuflik announced that they have launched Green Street Solar Power, a solar financing and installation company concentrating on providing turnkey solar solutions to residential, commercial and government customers.
Green Street Solar Power, backed by a consortium of private investors, is headquartered on Garrison Avenue in the Bronx.
With a current staff of 15 employees, the firm is projected to double that number to 30 by year’s end by hiring locally. The firm is an approved SunPower financing partner, the industry leader in solar panel technology.
Scott Kerner has more than 15 years of sales and management experience. Scott was recently the VP of Business Development for a solar company, where he was responsible for more than seven megawatts of residential sales. He was promoted to National Sales Director of Commercial and Utility Scale Projects and helped build the sales team in seven states across three regions and oversaw business development, new product development, bank financing partnerships, and all divisional administration.
Jason Kuflik has more than 15 years of accounting, financial, sales, and operations experience in solar and finance. Jason took a position with a solar development conglomerate where he managed its due diligence operations. He then joined a solar firm as VP of Commercial Business Development, where he successfully created more than six megawatts of residential Power Purchase Agreements and developed more than 2,000 acres of land for solar farms. He was responsible for all aspects of operations, including utility and New Jersey Clean Energy applications, utility interconnection, vendor management, and sourcing capital. Within three years, Jason was promoted to Chief Strategy Officer, overseeing all aspects of the commercial division.
Scott Kerner commented, “We are delighted about our success so far; we have had a tremendous response from our customers. We have far exceeded our initial sales projections and have increased our 2015 annual revenue projections from $6 million to around $10 million.”
