The three new members bring deep industry experience in energy, community wind development, and financial regulatory industries.
Dan Juhl is the Founder and CEO of Juhl Energy, and has been involved in the wind-power industry for more than 30 years. He has extensive experience in the design, manufacture, O&M of wind turbines. His company, Juhl Energy, has completed more than 21 wind farm projects across five states.
“Financing community based renewable projects have always been a big challenge. I believe that WindShare can help make community ownership of low cost, clean energy a successful reality, and I am excited to help make that happen.” Juhl notes.
Kim Arnone is the VP of Cutting Edge Capital, and has been practicing law for 20 years. She has spent the last five with Cutting Edge Capital, where she works on developing community capital raising strategies for social enterprises, cooperatives, and nonprofits.
“With year over year growth in wind farm development and consumer trends advancing towards adoption of renewable energy, investing in wind provides an alternative to the stock market while participating in a growing energy and social movement,” Arnone says.
Tom Mahowald is a Director of business development with Navigant Research, a market research and consulting team that provide analysis of global clean energy technology markets. Mahowald specializes in helping companies leverage external research to achieve their business goals and create value for their customers.
“The experience that Dan, Kim and Tom each bring from their respective careers will be a tremendous asset as we continue to scale and refine WindShare,” says Dan Lemberg, WindShare Founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled to have them onboard.”
