Regional Manager
  • Profile

Dan knows solar, from the cleanroom to the boardroom. A world traveler who studied abroad and received an MBA from Boise State University, Dan used his experiences and knowledge first as a consultant and then later to start, build, and sell his own businesses. After the sale of his last business (a large production sourdough bakery), Dan decided to focus on renewable energy by starting his solar training at Solar Energy International about 10 years ago. He then worked at multiple solar companies before joining IPS in Montana.

During his career with IPS, Dan has worked in installation, sales, and management. As a project manager, he played an integral role in some great Montana projects including off-grid power systems (with multiple battery storage technologies including lithium), grid-tied solar projects (rooftop, ground mount, and dual-axis trackers), and utility installations.

Dan believes it’s not just what you do but how you do it and he is eager to show you how using solar energy can lower your cost, increase your return, and maybe just save the planet.
