Great Sky Solar is undergoing executive changes for 2015. During a January 28th meeting, Katherine Fisher was selected Chief Executive Officer of Great Sky Solar, following the resignation of the previous CEO. Great Sky Solar is proud of its transition to a woman-owned company, which will also give them access to more capital and a larger variety of grants.

In addition to the executive changes, Great Sky Solar has effectively tripled its team with the hiring of three new installers and three new salespeople. Two of the three new salespeople are experienced in working with solar energy technology. The new additions to the installation team have a wide range of experience. One is a native Bostonian who has just finished his North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) training. The second is a journeyman level electrician. She will be doing most of the electrical work. The third installer is a master electrician with over 30 years of experience.

“We’ve got an all-star team and we’re really excited to start this next chapter,” said Fisher.

Great Sky Solar is currently experiencing a backlog of orders and needed the larger crew to get everything installed. With an increase in monthly sales, Great Sky Solar realized that they also needed more in-house people-power to get everything done. With more workers, the company will be able to delegate jobs and work more efficiently.

"I’m really excited to be a part of this and to be a leader in a worker-owned co-op that’s creating a new way of doing business,” Fisher stated.

Over the course of the next few months, Great Sky Solar hopes to hire more people for the roofing team in order to prepare for spring installations.
