Chief Operating Officer
A retired Naval Officer and veteran solar executive, Keith’s career has been marked by the oversight of projects of immense proportion and global reach. As former Vice President of International EPC at First Solar, Keith oversaw the development, construction, or operation of more than 50 utility-scale solar power plants globally, including two of the world’s largest solar plants. During his tenure, the First Solar Engineering, Procurement, and Construction team became the #2 energy construction company in the U.S. within five years of inception. Most recently, while at Sterling and Wilson, Keith oversaw the engineering and construction of the 1.2 GW Noor Abu Dhabi Solar Power Plant, which employed, under his direction, 120 team members and nearly 3,000 workers from over 25 countries. In addition to these monumental accomplishments, Keith is also a proven entrepreneur and business development leader. As COO, Keith now brings this formidable skill set to bear in Erthos’s drive towards a quantum leap in utility-scale solar deployment technology.
