Mr. Chen is a 13-year veteran of the U.S. solar industry and has raised over $1 billion in institutional and private financing for 320 megawatts of residential, commercial, and utility scale solar energy projects in the US. He is the founder of Breakaway Energy Partners, LLC and a former executive at Solar Power Partners (acquired by NRG Energy in 2011), SunEdison and NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG).
“When I started my solar career, I looked at how solar PV can be used on high rise commercial office buildings. I quickly realized that current solar PV systems are not practical because of the limited roof space of these buildings,” stated Mr. Chen. “SolarWindow has the potential to open up the commercial building sector for solar in a way nobody else has before.”
“With SolarWindow™ electricity-generating windows, we have an opportunity to create a new renewable energy asset class for institutional and private financiers along with customer-oriented financial products that will enable scalable deployment.”
