Joe Kiss is a successful businessman who has been in the electrical construction industry for over 25 years. He is a licensed master electrician in NJ, PA and DE. 15 years ago he chose to take a solar continuing education class that opened up a Pandora’s box of endless solar possibilities. That day his passion for solar began and so did his drive to build a solar company.
He pursued more education to become a NABCEP certified PV installer and was 1 of only a few master electricians who were also NABCEP certified in the country at the time. Joe Kiss founded and led an electrical contracting / solar EPC firm with 100+ employees and annual sales of over $12 million. Joe and his firm are responsible for thousands of installs from turnkey residential to large utility scale projects.
Today Joe is a solar consultant working with many new individuals, companies and trusts to develop, finance or manage solar projects commercially and residentially. He is a member of the NABCEP Veterans Committee devising plans to assist military veterans as they prepare for solar careers.
