This week at SolFarm Solar, we are highlighting one of our newer staff members, Edward Wright. Having been born in the UK, Ed came to the United States as a boy. He graduated from Appalachian State University with the appropriate technical degree and began an internship with SolFarm Solar. Later accepting a professional position with SolFarm as a Solar Installer, you are sure to see him on top of SolFarm roof-tops and at SolFarm Events. When asked about his passions, he states, “My passion is bringing innovative renewable energy technologies to our communities as well as communities in developing nations. I love soccer (football), disc golf, and stomping my feet to some good live music! Especially bluegrass!”
Ed has traveled to Costa Rica twice and once to Nicaragua to install several small off grid PV battery systems for rural homes and organic coffee farms. “These systems were for families who were unable to afford grid power or the power company was unwilling to bring grid power to those locations.” Ed also has experience servicing existing projects such as, wood-fired rocket stove hot water heaters, micro hydro electrical systems, permitting and solar design. Ed is a welcomed and loved member of the SolFarm team. You too will be able to catch up with him at the next SolFarm event or at your personal solar install.
