Vote Solar is launching a new initiative focused on utility-scale solar market development, and to lead this work, we are pleased to announce that we’ve hired Jim Baak as our new Director of Utility-Scale Solar Policy. Jim comes to us from PG&E, has deep experience with a variety of utility operations, and we are very excited to have him aboard.
Jim’s task will be to work with allies and partners to develop comprehensive policy blueprints to bring utility-scale solar to scale for AZ, CA, NM, and NV, and implement them. Success will mean central station solar below the price of fossil alternatives–a new tool in the fight against global warming. Jim starts Monday, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, 415.817.5064
