QBotix, manufacturer of robot-enabled dual-axis solar tracking systems, recently announced that Mike Miskovsky has joined the company as its new CEO. Miskovsky assumes the role from company founder Wasiq Bokhari, who will remain active on the management team and serve as executive chairman.
“QBotix technology is where solar is heading – reducing costs while increasing energy production to deliver superior lifecycle economics,” says Miskovsky, who will also be joining the company’s Board of Directors. “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.”
The appointment of Miskovsky – until recently the CEO of Zep Solar – marks QBotix’s continued momentum in commercializing the use of advanced robotics to deliver the most cost-effective tracking systems for commercial- and utility-scale PV projects, says the company.
“Mike’s experience and leadership at two industry-leading solar manufacturers gives him the perfect background to drive our next phase of growth,” says Bokhari.
Miskovsky’s breadth of business and leadership experience spans more than two decades, with a strong history of managing solar product and BOS companies. In his previous tenure at Zep Solar, he led the company through rapid customer and revenue growth, achieved dominant market-share in residential mounting systems, brought the company to profitability and negotiated the landmark 2013 sale of the company to SolarCity.
Prior to Zep Solar, Miskovsky was president of the U.S. division of Canadian Solar and co-founder and CEO of solar PPA-financing company CleanSource Power. Before entering the solar industry, he held senior roles at a number of technology startups and finance companies. Miskovsky is a Princeton graduate and received his MBA from Dartmouth’s Amos Tuck School.
