Joshua Rogol (Co-founder and Chief Electrification Officer)
Josh’s passion is figuring out how to deliver clean, reliable and low cost energy to anyone in the world that wants it. After witnessing widespread energy poverty first-hand on a trip to Mblae, Uganda during college, Josh has made it his mission to solve global electrification issues that plague more than a quarter of the world’s population. As a co-founding member of PHOTON Consulting, LLC, Josh conceptualized and developed a multi-million dollar revenue-generating online market research platform to bring transparency to the traditionally opaque photovoltaic industry. This data platform, The Wall, now serves as a decision-making input for hundreds of companies in the renewable energy space. In addition, Josh was a founding member of PHOTON Consulting’s Asia-based operations, and continues to travel extensively throughout the region. Josh holds a B.A., magna cum laude, in International Relations and Environmental Economics from Tufts University, and has completed additional studies at La Universidad de Playa Ancha in Valparaiso, Chile.
Chris Bolman (Co-founder and Chief Initiative Officer)
A globally-regarded cleantech consultant with PHOTON Consulting, LLC, Chris works closely as a strategic advisor to CEOs and senior management teams to identify and build sales channels, optimize marketing messages and successfully commission projects with solar energy. As a co-founder of Social Solar, Chris’s personal goal is to “share” the social impact, sustainability and financial empowerment of solar ownership between individuals in the developed world and in developing communities. Prior to envisioning a world with universal access to sustainable, sun-derived electricity, Chris did complex transactional things at Goldman Sachs that he had a hard time explaining to his parents (currently, he’s is a lot happier devoting his time to helping the “other 99%”). Chris has a B.A., magna cum laude, from Boston College, and has completed additional studies at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford University in Oxford, England.
