    Michael is one of the founding partners of SunPower by Stellar Solar (along with Kent Harle and Brian Grems) and helped grow the sales and marketing efforts of the company throughout its history: In 2001, he helped launch The Home Depot’s national solar energy program which is now offering home solar through hundreds of stores in nearly a dozen states.

He is a writer and marketing professional with over 35 years’ experience in the fields of renewable energy, market intelligence and leadership training, and currently serves as treasurer and board member of Global Energy Network Institute (GENI), a San Diego-based non-governmental organization that advocates linking renewable energy resources around the world using electricity transmission. He is regularly tapped by local publications for his expertise on the solar industry, and has been featured in stories by the San Diego Union-Tribune  and The Voice of San Diego. Nowadays, Michael writes for Stellar Solar's blog, shares his solar knowledge in their Get Smart on Solar video series, and publishes renewable energy related content on his personal blog, Terrawatts.
