OMCO Solar has announced key additions to its leadership teams to support the continued growth of the Field Fast Fixed tilt solar racking system and in preparation for its factory-direct single axis tracker product release in late 2019. OMCO Solar has now deployed 25 Field Fast projects in 13 states with a growing pipeline in place.
Jason Burkett joins OMCO to lead Solar Racking Business Development efforts and Keith Beisner will head up OMCO’s Field Services and Geotechnical Engineering efforts.
Burkett has extensive experience in operations, sales and management with companies involved in a variety of fields including commercial construction, manufacturing and department of transportation work. While his 25 plus year career started in the construction and manufacturing industries, he has successfully applied his knowledge of construction and sales to the solar industry for the past 11 years.
Serving as the VP of Operations for an EPC firm, he has overseen the development, procurement and construction activities of solar projects throughout the U.S. Burkett has spent the last seven years developing and leading sales efforts for both fixed tilt and tracker systems throughout North America.
Beisner brings 10 years of leadership in solar racking Field Services support, including gigawatts of experience in solar foundation testing and design, mechanical installations, and site management across commercial- and utility-scale projects throughout North America. He helped develop industry standards in on-site foundation testing, interpretation of site conditions for practical system design, and construction best practices for solar installations.
Beisner obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Structural Geology from the University of Kansas and a Master of Science Degree in Geological Engineering from the University of Utah. He brought his experience with foundations and soil stability to the solar industry, where he continues to develop and adapt solar field services to constantly changing design and installation solutions
“We are excited about the addition of Jason and Keith to our team during this exciting time in our history and are confident that their experience and proven track record of results will help take us to the next level,” said Eric Goodwin, Director of Solar Business Development for OMCO Solar.

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.
