Braggawatt Energy, a financing provider enabling small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) adoption of cost-saving onsite energy solutions (that we covered in this feature), continues to bolster its ranks with solar industry veterans, adding Nathan (Kii) Miller, P.E. as Chief Operating Officer. With more than 17 years of solar industry experience, Miller will be tasked with streamlining project underwriting and realization processes to scale Braggawatt’s financing provision.
“Kii’s strong industry track-record and commercial expertise, combined with his engineering know-how and innovative approach, will foster operational excellence as our offering scales to meet large market demand,” said Trey Ramsey, Braggawatt CEO and co-founder. “We are excited to have Kii join us in disrupting how distributed energy projects are originated, underwritten, financed and implemented,” added Oleg Popovsky, Braggawatt CCO and co-founder.
Braggawatt’s free-to-use online platform is enabling solar projects through its loan and PPA financing options. Over the past three months, more than 60 solar installation companies across more than 10 states have joined the platform and have created proposals for more than 100 SME clients, offering to unlock $130 million in energy cost-savings.
To enhance support for Braggawatt’s platform users, new features have recently been added based on user feedback and platform analytics. These features include interactive chatbots, an FAQ section, step-by-step platform guidance and phone support.
As the team and user base grows, Braggawatt will continue to connect solar providers with fast, transparent financing solutions to best serve the SME market.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
