Veterans of Renewable Energy
Merit SI and Merit Controls founders are experienced entrepreneurs who sold their first venture backed by Turner Enterprises to First Solar, a leading module manufacturer and turnkey plant provider. As former executives of First Solar, they led solar systems engineering and designed the world’s first control system enabling solar power to provide essential grid services beyond variable energy. After designing and safely energizing over 2,000 megawatts of the world’s largest solar power plants, they founded Merit SI to bring sustainable energy to critical infrastructure operators. Additionally, Merit Controls was launched to provide developers, EPCs and owners with compliant, efficient modeling services and power plant control solutions, all in one platform. A repeat investment of Turner Enterprises brought capital, strategic relationships and additional finance expertise to the team.
