Mark Goodwin has been promoted to president and CEO of Charlottesville, Va.-based Apex Clean Energy, which builds, owns and operates utility-scale wind and solar power facilities.
According to the company, Goodwin joined Apex in 2009 as chief operating officer (COO) and was named president and COO in 2010. Apex’s previous CEO, Sandy Reisky, will assume the dual roles of chairman of the board and chief strategy officer and will remain involved in key aspects of ongoing operations.
Apex says it has achieved a number of milestones in the past 18 months, including bringing 1,042 MW online – enough clean energy to supply the population of a city the size of Boston or San Francisco each year for the life of the facilities.
The company says it also recently closed two transactions, the 147 MW Grant Plains Wind and the combined 217 MW Cotton Plains Wind and Phantom Solar projects. Off-takers for the projects include utilities and corporations, and the latter features the largest-ever renewable power purchase by the U.S. Army.
“Together, we are accelerating our nation’s shift to clean energy,” stated Goodwin.
