Eric Dahnke

CEO and Founder
Eric has a background in both the utility and software industries. He has a masters degree in Energy Management and Policy from Columbia University and an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering. When he's not thinking about how software can be used to improve the delivery of clean energy programs, he spends his time in search of music venues and restaurants off the beaten path in New York city.

Chris Barrett

Managing Director and Co-Founder
Chris has extensive experience managing software integrations within the energy industry, having previously managed the development of the Victorian Government's carbon abatement certificate trading platform in his native Melbourne, Australia. He has a Bachelor of Arts (Political Science) and a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) from the University of Melbourne. He's an avid Hawthorn Hawks supporter, but no one is entirely sure who they are.

Hugh then ran the third party solar leasing business for NRG before being asked to run operations for NRG's strategic growth platform NRG Home Solar, where among other things he started and grew the community solar business. A native of Scotland, Hugh is on a life-long journey of reluctantly embracing American sports and culture that he secretly loves.
