Commercial Solar Project Developer
In 2009, after 20 years as a professional photographer, Dan started his career in renewable energy with training through Solar Energy International. He was soon developing commercial projects ranging from 8 kW for a local business owner to 1.1 MW for a rural electric cooperative. Much of Dan’s experience has been developing projects for schools, municipalities, and community solar projects. Dan has a B.A. from the University of Denver and a B.A. from Brooks Institute of Photography. In his free time, he enjoys travel, cooking and spending time with his family.
Sam moved to Colorado in 2015 to be closer to mountains. Namasté Solar caught his eye when he first moved out here, and the more he learned and heard about it from other solar folks, the more he knew it was a “real deal” company that actually walked the talk of being energy conscious. Prior to joining Namasté Solar, Sam attended SUNY Delhi for Electrial Instrumentation, and worked in another solar company’s warehouse. He loves woodworking and music, plays the guitar, and dabbles in other instruments. Sam is a self-professed history nerd who likes to play trivia and board games. He likes hiking and snowshoeing, but has never skied or snowboarded (and probably won’t).
