Founder and Chairman, Solar CrowdSource
With 15 years of legal experience in residential and commercial real estate, Don began working in the solar industry in 2011 developing distributed generation and utility-scale solar PV projects. Recently, Don founded Solar CrowdSource, a dynamic platform that facilitates Solarize, Community Solar, and peer-to-peer crowdfunding programs in an effort to rapidly accelerate the growth and reduce soft costs of solar in Georgia. Solar CrowdSource is part of a public-private partnership that initiated Solarize Athens and Solarize Decatur-DeKalb, bulk-purchasing programs that help make solar more affordable and accessible to the residents of those communities. Don has developed several MWs of solar PV for TVA and Georgia Power solar programs as well as commercial and residential applications providing turn-key development services including site selection; financial modeling; program and incentive compliance; permitting; and contract drafting and negotiation. Don is a proud to serve as Chair of the Georgia Solar Energy Association, member of the Georgia Solar Energy Industries Association, and a member of the State Bar of Georgia.
