RIDGEWOOD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Scale Microgrid Solutions LLC (“Scale”) is excited to announce and welcome Chris Cantone as their new Chief Revenue Officer. This newly created leadership position will take advantage of Chris’ 25+ years of leadership experience to further drive sales and growth across the business.
Scale is continuing to grow at an exponential pace as they deploy both microgrids and capital across the country.
Chris has played an integral role in building two major players in the distributed energy industry. From 2008 - 2016 he was an executive member and the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at CPower, where he helped turn an idea into the country's largest demand-side energy solutions provider with over 5 GWs of load under management.
Subsequently, Chris ran the C&I team at SunPower for the last 5 ½ years during which time he orchestrated an impressive turnaround that was cemented when Total acquired that business unit for $250M+ earlier this year.
“Chris is an amazing addition to the Scale team, and I can’t wait to see him in action. The company is growing at a rapid pace, helping us to attract the very best minds in the industry,” says Ryan Goodman, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re confident he will hit the ground running, and further help bring the company’s vision of ‘powering the world with distributed energy’ to a reality.”
“Scale’s position in the market is ripe for the type of acceleration that I’m excited to take part in,” says Chris. “Due to recent investments in the renewable space, we are at an inflection point where customers can choose to meet their sustainability goals and take advantage of Scale’s microgrid solutions providing cheaper, cleaner and more reliable power. They have put together a team of the top players in the space and made an impressive name for themselves in this industry. I’m looking forward to joining such a passionate team.”
