Standard Solar, Inc., a leading solar energy company specializing in the development and financing of commercial solar electric systems nationwide, today announced the promotion of Dan Dobbs to chief financial officer. Additionally, the company announced significant growth in 2019, closing the year with 262 megawatts of solar projects operational, under construction or contracted in 14 states.
Dobbs moves into the CFO role from Executive Vice President, Structured Finance. He joined the organization in December 2018, coming to Standard Solar from SunEdison and Solar Grid Storage. Dobbs’ appointment was part of a concerted effort by the company to secure leading talent with the experience to grow and expand its leadership position in the industry.
“Dobbs’ achievements over the last year are a testament to his leadership abilities and financial acumen, and we look forward to his contributions in the CFO role,” said Scott Wiater, president and CEO, Standard Solar. “2019 has been a year of great accomplishments for the company, including adding multiple megawatts to our balance sheet, securing strategic partnerships and projects in more than a dozen states, and reinforcing our financial strength and leadership.”
Dobbs started his energy sector career at SunEdison, where he progressed through finance, marketing and product management roles. He left to co-found Solar Grid Storage, where he served as CFO and developed the finance and operations models that created the first third-party financed storage-as-a-service business. Dobbs then returned to SunEdison following its acquisition of Solar Grid Storage.
