WASHINGTON, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company providing 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, today announced it has brought new solar development expertise in-house to help expand the company's community solar division. The hire of Tim Ahrens allows CleanChoice to more rapidly expand its community solar offerings across multiple markets.
"CleanChoice offers me the opportunity to work on projects across the United States," said Ahrens, "making clean energy accessible and affordable for all Americans."
As Managing Director of Renewable Energy Development, Ahrens will lead CleanChoice's development team with the goal of providing this additional service to existing projects and partners as well as sourcing new opportunities to expand the company's solar offerings. Ahrens focus will be on advancing projects from inception through to construction. Projects will be sourced through either greenfield or acquisition initiatives with the team ensuring viability through its diligence protocol.
Ahrens has over 20 years of professional experience in environmental remediation and renewable energy initiatives. Most recently Ahrens focused on the development of remote net metered solar photovoltaic projects within New York and Vermont. Prior to this, Ahrens spent time working on the development of wind projects in New York and solar in Puerto Rico in addition to environmental remediation projects throughout the East Coast.
"We're excited to be expanding our community solar skill set," said Tom Matzzie, Founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. "We have an ambitious agenda in the next several years and see Tim as an incredible value-add to our existing partnerships and to the ones to come. More community solar means more and better choices for consumers, more economic development, less pollution and more jobs."
