Since 2005, John Fitzgerald Weaver has worked at the cross section of finance and solar. A project developer with an engineering background, his passion for solar technology is driven by a desire to learn mixed with a need to create a cleaner world. With energy as the second largest global industry and solar power growing at an increasing pace, the industry is in the midst of a global takeover of the electricity (and energy) industry. He has founded a solar construction company, managed for a global manufacturer and worked on projects in snowy and sunny states.
A strong believer in the potential of solar power, John recognizes the fundamental role of that energy has in food, shelter, transportation and survival. Using fire was a big step for people back in the day. Using the sun is and will be a big step for people of today. John’s interest in the solar life is an amalgamation of his expertise in technology, physics, politics and economics.
“My interests in technology, my belief in solar’s ability to effect change on multiple species, my need for intellectual growth and my desire to be a part of something important brought me to this fundamental industry,” he said. “I chose the Solar Life.”
He is currently focused on commercial and utility development as Project Developer at Solect. If you have a commercial or industrial solar project in the New York to New England region in in mind, please contact John at (561) 809-0482.
