The Board also elected new officers and I’m proud to present the executive committee:

Yep, that’s my name right there – I am the new President of Solar Oregon!!

I was honored to be selected.  Thanks to my fellow board members for your approval and encouragement.  I look forward to taking on the responsibility of the position, but I must warn you, I have a lot of energy for this organization and our mission. :-)   

Solar Oregon Leadership - Claire Carlson and El Presidente

It’s an exciting time for solar power in America. I look to Solar Oregon as more than just a stakeholder – I see us as a leader and a difference-maker. I’ll work with Claire Carlson and our great new staff to ensure that we are indeed. 

The future for Solar Oregon looks as bright as the sun, my friends.

I am your humble servant.
