“I first became aware of Koolbridge Solar over 3-years ago while at the Solar Power International Show when I visited with them at their booth and have been following their progress since then. Recently I had the pleasure to meet with Bill Griffin, President and CEO, and Stephen Burnett, Co-Founder and Chairman of Koolbridge Solar at Renova Capital Partners in Denver, CO. They presented what our team perceived to be one of the most unique energy management products that has come along in a long-time. I am impressed with the high level of energy and excitement about Koolbridge Solar’s first product, The SMART LOAD CENTER™ and adding my 11-years of extensive energy management experience towards helping to make Koolbridge Solar a leader in the solar market”, said Eric Hinckley.
Renova is a private equity firm with an established track record of investing in, financing and operating renewable energy assets. Since inception in 2007, they have successfully developed and capitalized over $600-million of renewable energy infrastructure. My track-record of working for and with energy-oriented companies makes my coming on-board Koolbridge Solar’s Board of Directors a logical occurrence and further allows me to help build start-ups.
In addition to Renova Capital Partners, Eric’s experience includes working together with SolarEdge and Tesla in the design of the Powerwall and electrical conversion equipment. He also has worked at Vivint Smart Home, Nichols Power Systems, BriteStreet Energy Group, LLC, AES Distributed Energy, Inc, Main Street Power Company, Inc, Solar Resource Consulting, LLC, Simple Solar Systems, LLC, and Solorado Energy, LLC in 2008.
