Our team

Eric Graf


Eric started working in the solar PV industry in 2009 (before it was cool) as a general contractor. That business ended up being sold as a software company in 2012. From that point forward, Eric served in multiple roles as a product specialist focused on origination and finance, and founded a handful of companies in the energy industry.

Given enough time, Erik could build a utility-scale solar project with his own hands, but the urgency of Illinois’ energy transition will not allow that. Illinois’ pivot to clean energy warrants the partnership of veteran solar professionals. It requires the foresight to see the alignment of legislation, expertise, and progressive customers.
