Sullivan brings five years of solar photovoltaic experience to Everblue and will be working in the company’s Denver, CO branch. Our new solar PV expert has professional experience in many areas of solar energy including design, instruction, installation, consulting, and management.
“Everblue has a unique position in the industry trying to educate and train the greater population in emerging skills (LEED, Solar, BPI, etc.),” Sullivan said. “I am also impressed by Jon and Chris’s veteran background, which has served as a catalyst to launch a business to help reduce our need for foreign oil. They do not have the typical ‘green collar’ worker upbringing, but they are part of the same movement.”
An entrepreneur himself, Sullivan started 303 Solar, a company specializing in solar photovoltaic consulting for the Denver area. Within his work at 303 Solar, Sullivan has experience teaching three- and five-day courses about solar panel installation and commercial solar photovoltaic use. He supervises curriculum development to ensure training programs provide comprehensive and current instruction. He also designs solar arrays and implements solar projects in the area.
Sullivan is excited to join Everblue’s team as a solar instructor: “I have a passion for teaching and spreading solar knowledge; Everblue has a passion for the same thing. It’s a good match,” he said.
To date, Sullivan has sold, installed, and managed over 2 megawatts (MW) of residential and small commercial solar installation. He also uses sustainable energy in his personal life, including a 4.5 kilowatt (kW) solar array and Solatube lights at his home. Sullivan frequently attends community events and trade shows to promote sustainable energy use and to stay informed about recent developments in the sustainability field.
“I have a unique ground-level perspective on what makes a solar company successful,” he said. “I have personally installed, designed, and sold hundreds of residential and commercial solar systems.”
A self-described “solar warrior,” Sullivan’s management, planning, contracting, design, and installation experience will be a great asset to Everblue’s instructional workforce. Sullivan earned his BS in business management from the University of Colorado. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, playing soccer, and gardening.
