In 2007 Michael joined a company called REC Solar, on the first day the CEO finished the orientation with a group viewing of Al Gore’s groundbreaking documentary “An Inconvenient Truth”. Over the following years Michael helped 300+ homeowners switch to Solar energy for their homes, then moved into management and has been leading Sales teams ever since. Under Michaels leadership, in 2021 his teams executed Sales and Install volume in excess of 30MWs in Northern and Central California. Through this journey Michael has found a passion for learning about and creating real lasting change on Environmental challenges. He practices what he preaches by having a Solar Powered home and driving an fully electric vehicle with no emissions. Michael believes that it is critical for our behavior to rapidly change toward eliminating emissions from Transportation, Energy Production and generally all aspects of our lives. Moreover he believes that there are real solutions that can accomplish these objectives while also creating positive economic activity in all sectors. With this foundation Michael enthusiastically joined the IGIHOF BOD in 2018 and continues to be involved on the Advisory Board today.
