As solar energy continues to make inroads into American society, its executives are becoming more pervasive in policy and decision-making. Such is the case for Volt Energy CEO Gilbert Campbell, who has just been named to the Solar Energy Industries Association advisory board.
In a press release, it was revealed that Campbell will get involved with the implementation of SEIA’s Solar Vision for the Biden administration and 117th Congress, an agenda that SEIA is dedicated to moving forward within the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration.
“The solar industry is uniquely positioned to help our nation recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, by stimulating the economy through investments in clean energy infrastructure, generating new clean energy jobs and improving health outcomes in the most impacted communities. I look forward to working with SEIA’s CEO, Abigail Ross Hopper, and the executive committee to assist the Biden-Harris Administration in their efforts to create a cleaner future,” said Campbell, in the press release statement.
Volt Energy, which was founded in 2010, is a minority-owned national renewable energy firm. According to the press release, it finances and establishes utility-scale and distributed generation solar projects and energy storage solutions for commercial, government, educational and non-profit institutions. Their clients include such companies as Accenture, Exelon/Pepco, The Cheesecake Factory, Subaru, District of Columbia Government, Howard University, and Wake Forest University.
