Skyline Solar has appointed Solon CTO Lars Podlowski to its board of directors. Podlowski was tapped by the high-gain solar/CPV company for his combination of extensive technical expertise in the implementation of large-scale solar products, systems, and plants as well as his intimate knowledge of European markets, which Skyline says will help it as the firm looks to expand globally.
“Skyline Solar has gone from Series A funding to first installed PV power plant in eight months,” said Podlowski. “I have been impressed with Skyline’s progress and am excited to work with them as they transition to manufacturing and deployment of large-scale solar power plant equipment.”
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Skyline, said that his company is “elated to have him on board as we develop our strategic position in the rapidly evolving solar landscape, especially within the competitive European market.
“As we move into full production of the Skyline HGS system later this year, we expect Europe to be a major strategic market for the company as project developers and financiers look for solutions that offer the performance and durability of tracked silicon at a cost competitive with thin-film solutions in sunny climates.”
