Our North American leadership team brings on board a wealth of experience in delivering large-scale solar PV projects that serve communities and benefit local partners. CEO Tim Derrick and COO Kevin Christy were previously co-founders in 2007 of Axio Power, one of the first major utility-scale PV players in the US market.
Tim and Kevin led a team that quickly matured from a lean start-up to an established team of experts. Key growth milestones included the 2009 acquisition of BQ Energy, a New York-based developer of utility-scale renewable energy projects located on industrial, military, and brownfield sites. BQ Energy’s MD praised the team for its expertise in realizing existing projects and expanding development activities.
The team also gained early mover status in the Ontario market, securing 90 MW of Ontario Power Authority (OPA) Feed-In-Tariff contracts in 2010 and was among the first PV developers in the California, Hawaii, and Massachusetts markets, developing projects such as Cascade Solar – a 24 MW PV project near Joshua Tree that was part of the first round of the California reverse auction (RAM) program.
Tim and Kevin successfully built one of the most established utility-scale PV pipelines in North America over a period of 5 years. The team delivered over 1 GW of solar projects across the region, including 120 MW of assets contracted with Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
