Veterans of Renewable Energy

Merit SI 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. A repeat investment of Turner Enterprises brought patient capital, strategic relationships and additional finance expertise to the team.
