Meet our Team
SunFarmor LLC began as a response to an InnoCentive Challenge posed by an international energy company that was struggling to gain public acceptance of its utility-scale solar farms in the rural Midwest. Instead of considering solar farming the exclusive purview of solar developers, our Founder developed a turnkey solution that rural communities could use to secure their energy futures. Our predecessor company, TrackerSled, was a finalist in the third round of the DOE Solar Prize and a DOE SBIR grantee.
