Scott Wiater of Standard Solar is the type of leader the solar industry can be proud to have. His integrity and leadership manifests in everything he does, and you can take him at his word.
But Scott is more than just a leader; Scott is an innovator. In searching for funding for a group of community solar projects we’ve been developing, we just couldn’t find a solution or partner that met our needs. Inside-the-box, repetitive thinking handicapped most of the financiers we spoke with.
Fortunately for us, Scott is not an inside-the-box thinker. Scott created a solution for us when no other company had the vision or foresight to “go there.” Scott and his team provided us with a funding program for our community solar portfolio that was unlike any other offer we had seen. It takes someone with vision, fortitude and commitment to make a deal like this happen, and we are very happy to have found Scott and his team at Standard Solar to partner with.
But a strong will and innovation can only take you so far. What makes Scott truly stand out as a prominent leader in the solar industry is his unwavering integrity. When Scott commits to something or says that something will be done, you can count on it getting done. And not only done, but done right. In a business where there is a lot of talk and “brag-a-watts,” it’s refreshing to work with someone who always sticks to his word.
Scott’s visionary thinking, unwavering commitment to excellence and integrity and extensive experience in getting solar deals done make him and his team at Standard Solar the ideal partners for our commercial and community solar projects, and any future projects we might have.
