Josh has been involved in the solar industry since a very early age, having grown up in a family-built passive solar adobe home in Northern Arizona. After graduating from Business School at Northern Arizona University he spent several years traveling the world before finding his way into the industry just as Arizona’s solar market began to take off.
During his first two years as Project Manager the business quickly grew to become one of the premier solar companies in Arizona with several hundred kilowatts of installed projects around the state. He was then recruited into the corporate side of solar as the West Coast Regional Sales Manager for Alpha Technologies here in Bellingham, before becoming a founding partner of Western Solar in 2008. Over the past thirteen years, Josh has served in several key roles at Western Solar, from climbing on roofs and installing some the first panels we put in back in the early days, to managing the sales, design, and installation of several megawatts of solar throughout Washington State.
Josh spends every free moment outside of work on his mountain bike, backpacking, or traveling the world looking for adventures. Having taken a sabbatical year off to visit 22 countries on 6 continents, Josh returned to Western Solar with an increased passion for this growing industry that is poised to help protect the world from the growing threat of climate change.
