Matt Thompson started in solar 15 years ago as a Peace Corp Volunteer, where he helped families of the Bolivian Altiplano install 50W PV systems. Matt settled in the Bay Area just as residential grid-tie solar was beginning to take root, working as a lead installer for Eco Energies, and then as an installer trainer at REC Solar. At SolFocus, he helped manage the deployment of concentrated photovoltaic systems (CPV), from small R&D sites to large commercial power plants. Matt holds a BS in Construction Management and has been a licensed solar and general contractor since 2005. When not building solar, he loves spending time cycling and surfing.
