PV Powered, Inc., announced the appointment of Glenn Harris as company President. The company states that Harris brings to the company many years of international business experience in the solar electric industry along with successful entrepreneurial and corporate management experience in emerging technology markets.

"I have had the opportunity to be involved with many aspects of the solar business in the U.S. and around the world. To be successful in our industry you need the ability to rapidly respond to changing international market requirements, government programs and regulations," Harris said. "PV Powered’s scalable product platform, talented team and flexible manufacturing capabilities uniquely position us for success and will allow us to help move the U.S. solar industry forward. Our residential and commercial inverters will set a new standard for reliability and performance."

Most recently, Glenn served as CEO/President of SunCentric Inc., a solar consultancy firm that worked with an international client base of established and emerging solar companies. Prior to SunCentric, Glenn was General Manager of a major value added solar electric distributor where he was the principal architect of the company’s successful multi-market expansion in the U.S. and Canada. While directing the company’s ten-fold growth, Harris worked closely with international and U.S. manufacturers, introducing new PV and inverter product lines for grid-tied and off-grid markets.

"Glenn truly understands the complex dynamics of the solar business environment," said Gregg Patterson, Chairman and CEO of PV Powered. "His demonstrated leadership, drive, and deep industry experience will be instrumental in helping us become one of the leading players in our fast-growing industry."
