Solect Energy, a Massachusetts-based commercial-scale solar company, is expanding its business into the state of Connecticut. The move comes after the solar provider entered the Rhode Island market earlier this year.
“We are excited to take on this new venture and pursue the opportunities that lay ahead for solar energy in Connecticut,” says Craig Huntley, chief development officer and co-founder of Solect Energy. “Connecticut has seen tremendous growth in solar energy in the past four years and is expected to continue that growth over the next several years and beyond. We are proud to play a part in the solar efforts of Connecticut and help the state’s businesses, municipalities and nonprofit organizations reduce energy costs through solar energy.”
At the forefront of Solect’s expansion into Connecticut will be Kent McCord, who was recently hired as director of business development at Solect Energy. Based in Granby, Conn., McCord has 15 years of experience in the renewable and alternative energy market. Prior to joining the Solect team, McCord was director of sales and marketing at Doosan Fuel Cell, a manufacturer of fuel cell combined-heat-and-power systems in South Windsor, Conn.
