Cascadia Renewables brings a blend of solar, storage, and policy insight with decades of combined experience in the clean energy industry. Installing solar & storage is in our DNA. We’ve built thousands of residential, commercial and industrial systems and cut our teeth on the front lines of the clean energy transition.
The pace of technological progress has left the traditional development and procurement process outdated and ill prepared. With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) there is an unprecedented opportunity in the commercial and public sector to develop resilient, low cost, and meaningful clean energy projects. However, without a lean, streamlined development process rooted in the community and drawing from installation experience, there is a risk that we will miss our last best chance at an equitable energy transition.
Cascadia Renewables was built with the intention of serving installers and protecting public dollars. We bring the relevant policy and industry expertise to provide top tier consultation, RFP development, system design, contractor selection, and construction compliance/consulting services.

In that time, Callum has been responsible for assessing, designing and communicating thousands of solar projects for customers across the Midwest and Pacific Northwest.
Over the last five years, Callum has specialized in grant funded, governmental and public bid projects, working closely with local tribes, nonprofits and municipalities to develop their solar portfolios.
