Origami Solar appoints Michael Gray as Chief Operating Officer

By Origami Solar

Origami Solar, developers of a patent-pending steel frame for solar modules that lowers cost, dramatically reduces carbon emissions and improves performance and value, has announced the appointment of energy industry veteran, Michael Gray, to the new position of Chief Operating Officer (COO). With over 40 years of experience, Gray will lead and build out Origami’s secure and transparent steel supply chain program to support the company’s rapidly growing momentum.

With the industry’s transition from aluminium to steel well underway, Gray’s appointment will help Origami further strengthen the domestic solar ecosystem through reduced material and manufacturing costs and secure, sustainable domestic production.

Origami CEO Gregg Patterson commented: “Michael shares our vision of disrupting the monopolized solar supply chain that for decades has relied heavily on imported, carbon intensive, aluminium. His proven expertise and well-established networks in the steel and solar industries will be critical as we bring low-carbon, U.S.-made steel module frames to market in 2024.”

Gray added: “The majority of my career has been buying and selling steel across the globe. I am deeply motivated by Origami’s innovation in steel frame design that allows us to re-shore domestic solar frame production and strengthen energy independence. Origami has spent the past two years developing premier partners in steel and fabrication. I’m excited to build on this foundation to scale and optimize the most robust and cost-effective steel ecosystem in North America and Europe.”
