Geronimo Wind Energy has begun a solar power project development practice and changed its name to Geronimo Energy. The company has also hired Nathan Franzen as director of solar development to lead its foray into the solar market.
‘The solar market opportunity has become very clear, given the tremendous cost declines in the industry that are making solar power competitive in new markets, such as the Midwest, where we have focused,’ explains Blake Nixon, president of Geronimo.
Franzen comes to Geronimo from Westwood Professional Services, where he was the director of solar energy. His experience includes oversight and project management of more than 100 commercial and utility-scale solar projects in 16 states.
Geronimo plans to develop solar projects for commercial, industrial and utility clients.
