Former CEO, Mike Miskovsky of PV module mounting systems designer, Zep Solar has joined another innovative company in the PV sector, robot controlled tracking systems firm, QBotix. SolarCity acquired Zep Solar for US$158 million all stock transaction in October, 2013.
The new CEO of QBotix replaces founder Wasiq Bokhari, who shifts to the executive chairman role, with Miskovsky tasked with expanding its order book from the current 80MW plus level.
“QBotix is the most innovative company in the large-scale solar project space right now, and I'm excited to be part of its growing momentum,” said Miskovsky. “QBotix technology is where solar is heading – reducing costs while increasing energy production to deliver superior lifecycle economics. The experience of the last four years has shown me that the balance-of-system (BOS) is where project costs are being driven down most; QBotix is perfectly positioned to lead that charge.”
Prior to joing Zep Solar, Miskovsky was the US President of Canadian Solar and co-founder/CEO of solar PPA-financing company CleanSource Power. Before entering the solar industry, he held senior roles at a number of technology start-ups and finance companies. Miskovsky is a Princeton graduate and received his MBA from Dartmouth's Amos Tuck School.
