Peter Fiala started with the co-op in 2017, primarily as its Media Director, but soon after as board member and in 2020 as the co-op vice president. In 2021, he took to opportunity to work full time expanding and coordinating our solar group buy program in multiple areas of the state. This role allowed him to work one-on-one with homeowners to educate them on the basics of solar, including cost and placement of their system, and quote analysis if needed.
Peter has a long-standing passion for all things renewable and brings his experience in the nonprofit world as project and events coordinator to solar project management.
Among his strengths are listening to the aspirations of individuals, business-owners and nonprofits, filling the gaps to their understanding of solar and determining and giving them the information needed for them to make an informed decision on their solar investment. As you know, Legacy Solar Co-op often goes the extra mile to build relationships with and meet the needs of its members and customers, something Peter is very at home doing.
In addition to project management, Peter monitors the production of many of the Co-op’s solar projects around the state, from the four City of Monona municipal sites that installed solar in 2013 to systems that have just gone online. Projects may also involve a solar loan through the co-op, either to the tax sponsor or directly to the host site.
