Soltage, LLC, a full service renewable energy company that develops, owns and operates Soltage Powerstations across the US, has announced that George P. Schaefer will take over as the company’s new CFO.
With over three decades of experience in the energy and finance industry, Schaefer had recently been VP and Treasurer of NRG, where he closed over $15 billion in debt and equity issuances. In addition to this, he was VP of Entergy Power Group, where he was responsible for a US$3 billion power plant in China, and head of GE’s European Structured Finance group in London.
Co-Founder and COO of Soltage, Vanessa E-H Stewart, said, ” Bringing George on board, especially after securing the financial backing from Tenaska Solar, a subsidiary of Tenaska Energy, one of the largest independent power producers in the US, is important to our business’ growth.”
Shaefer added, “Soltage is a vibrant, growth-oriented renewable energy company that dovetails well with my most recent experience as CFO of two venture capital backed start-up companies: Mascoma Corporation of Boston and ASAlliances Biofuels, LLC of Dallas. I’m excited to help accelerate Soltage’s growth beyond the east coast to further demonstrate its national presence.”
