Derek Fannin – Director of Operations

As a veteran in the Solar Energy Industry , I understand how critically important it is for us to transition away from fossil-fuels to renewable, clean energy. This is why we at Nexus pride ourselves on educating our customers and the community about the environmental and financial benefits alternative power sources.Traditionally, solar has been marketed to consumers with an environmental consciousness as opposed to an economical one. Nexus Solar is dedicated to changing this trend and bringing solar to not only high-end consumers but mainstream America as well. Our customers enjoy producing clean, affordable electricity for much less than they are already paying with their utility company.
