In 2007 Chris Warren, founder of Clean Energy Advisors, motivated by his passion around the environment, left corporate america to pursue energy efficiency and renewables.
Since then, he has participated in over $100 million worth of solar projects. In 2013, Chris brought financial innovation to the solar energy industry by creating a professionally managed portfolio of small utility scale solar projects that eliminated unnecessary capex, passed through the entire value of the tax benefits to investors, and only pursued projects that were profitable without subsidies.
By early 2017, Mr. Warren had built a team and successfully attracted enough capital to acquire over 100 megawatts of solar projects.
As a result, the leadership team decided to create a foundation to educate people about the environment and, using CEA’s experience, help fund projects for those who need to power of solar most.
