A group of seasoned wind and solar industry executives launched Strategic Solar Sourcing to offer small and medium-sized solar businesses supply chain management outsourcing services and products previously available only to large organizations, including low-cost equipment pricing on modules, inverters and racking with resulting significant bottom-line improvements.

“After more than 30 years of collective experience in both wind and solar energy, ranging from residential solar installations to massive utility-scale wind and solar projects, our team recognized that small and medium-sized solar businesses are at a real disadvantage to effectively compete in this area,” said John Billingsley, Chairman and CEO of Strategic Solar Sourcing. “Our focus will be to give our customers access to a level of buying power and expertise that have been out of reach until now – driving down costs and making them more competitive and successful.”

The newly formed Strategic Solar Sourcing will provide enterprise-quality, supply chain services and products for residential and C&I solar installers, developers, EPCs, and other solar professionals with direct-to-manufacturer pricing without the need for large purchases. The company provides best-in-class financeable products and warranties, standardized data specs, forward-thinking technology roadmap acquisition and personalized, full supply chain services. Strategic Solar Sourcing also offers a unique and profitable referral program to qualified solar professionals with a solid existing solar network in place.

“To be competitive in today’s solar market, solar professionals need to have quality, financeable, product available when they need it, where they need it, and at the best price,” said Joseph Kiwak, President of Strategic Solar Sourcing. “The only way to make that happen is with an experienced supply chain team on staff. Since most small and medium-sized solar businesses are unable to acquire or afford the talent needed to deliver this level of service within their own company, they consequently struggle to compete with the larger solar firms. Our mission is to fill this void and provide our clients with the services, products and buying power necessary to compete in the expanding solar industry with reduced costs and increased profits.”

Strategic Solar Sourcing’s outsourcing services cover the entire solar supply chain lifecycle including equipment requirements and specification management, strategic sourcing, supplier management, sourcing support, operational purchasing, procurement administration and account payable administration. Additionally, the company has partnered with top brands to guarantee Tier 1 modules, inverters both string and micro and all types of solar racking.

The company is headed by the management team that built Tri Global Energy, one of America’s top five wind project developers, and Sunfinity Renewable Energy, an EPC serving multiple states in residential, C&I and utility scale solar. This includes John B. Billingsley as Chairman and CEO and Joseph Kiwak, as President. Kiwak currently also serves as Sunfinity’s Chief Strategy and Procurement Officer, Executive Director of Supply Chain for Sunnova Energy, and Vice President of Supply Chain for NRG Renew/Home where he was responsible for over 450MW of residential, C&I, community solar and utility scale projects.

Keith Bluford serves as Strategic Solar Sourcing’s Senior Vice President responsible for business development and sales. Bluford’s credentials include a role as SVP for Business Development at Energy Bin, a wholesale solar B2B exchange with over 1,000 members in the solar industry, and a former position as SVP Sales/Marketing for Sunora Energy Solutions, a subsidiary of NRG.

Vision Solar has plans to expand nationwide (now hiring in Tempe, Arizona)

Vision Solar

Vision Solar, one of the fastest-growing solar companies in the United States, is opening a new location in Tempe, Ariz., this month, signaling the company’s plans to expand nationwide. Vision Solar plans to hire more than 60 employees, sales representatives, technicians and installers for the Tempe location which will serve the Scottsdale-Phoenix market — a strategic move, given that Arizona is among the top ranked states for its residential solar capacity.

Arizona also held its national ranking as the third-largest in solar installation in 2018, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association’s year-in-review report.

Vision Solar is a full-service renewable energy company based in Pennsylvania that was recently named the number one installer by SunPower Solar on the East Coast. With a combined experience of over 50 years, the company proudly serves residents throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey — and, now, thanks to the new Tempe location, throughout Arizona.

“We are thrilled to announce that Vision Solar is entering one of the most exciting solar markets in the United States: Arizona,” states Mike Eden, CRO of Vision Solar. “This move signals our strategic plans for aggressive growth nationwide, as one of the fastest growing solar companies in the nation, and also shows how much we have expanded in the less than three years since our inception.”

Apart from providing customers with easy financing options, Vision Solar also ensures that the entire process of installation is handled in-house, to provide the smoothest and most convenient experience of switching to solar energy.

Vision Solar also promises savings to consumers who make the switch to solar energy. According to company estimates, consumers can save up to an average of 30 percent on their monthly electric bills, in addition to other savings in the form of tax and financial incentives.

Vision Solar is dedicated to improving the lives of customers as well as to protecting the environment.
