About Nuance Energy

Nuance Energy is a vertically integrated company that is making solar energy substantially more affordable via breakthrough advances in innovative products and best business practices.

The patent-pending Osprey PowerPlatform® takes a new and revolutionary approach to ground mount solar racking systems and is delivering impressive results in EPC best installation practices.

Using the solar industry’s first earth anchor foundation system application, the Osprey PowerPlatform minimizes conventional engineering requirements, adds modular scalability to the procurement and installation processes, and dramatically reduces field construction complexity and costs. These improvements—along with the ability to deploy the modular Osprey PowerPlatform on varied terrain, in any type of soil condition and across multiple vertical markets—are making ground mount solar energy more practical and affordable at any scale. As a result, Nuance Energy is creating more profit-making opportunities in agricultural, commercial, industrial and small utility-scale solar projects.

Nuance Energy is continuing to fulfill its mission to pursue additional advances in lowering the cost of solar energy by leveraging the Osprey PowerPlatform’s innovative, modular design and unique advantages down the value chain. By establishing a global network of certified suppliers equipped to fabricate the entire modular solar ground mount system, Nuance Energy is enabling distributors, EPCs and contractors to carry less inventory, experience shorter lead times and minimize overhead costs to achieve peak profitability. Nuance Energy also helps customers design systems, secure financing and obtain all necessary project approvals.

Nuance Energy’s AgWell Solar® construction division is bringing the many benefits of the Osprey PowerPlatform directly to family farming operations throughout California’s Central Valley—and beyond. The Osprey’s industry-leading simplicity of installation for ground mount solar eliminates the usual project delays and headaches, while the dramatic reduction in total project costs enables these agricultural customers to achieve a full payback in record time.

PRESIDENT & CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

As CEO and Founder of Nuance Energy Group, Inc., Brian is responsible for the company’s overall strategy, leadership team, revenue, business development, emerging business opportunities and vertical markets. His vision and hands-on experience helped develop the nascent business model and the disruptive solar products at the core of Nuance Energy, the multi-utility patented Osprey PowerPlatform®.

Brian is known for creating bold solutions to complex business challenges that drive revenue – a unique ability that has earned the respect of his peers, customers and business partners. Brian recently founded CalWARE, Inc. a 501c(3) non profit. California Water Automation & Renewable Energy’s mission is to bring money back to the farm. Sponsored workshops by subject matter expert guest speakers inform Ag growers on farm energy management best business practices combining water automation and irrigation efficiencies, utility rate reduction strategies, policy change awareness, solar + energy storage solutions and alternative financing.

The consummate entrepreneur, Brian’s professional career includes several start-up ventures in real estate and companies, in addition to consulting and management positions in sales and business development for leading industry corporations like SunPower Corporation, Oracle, Reed Elsiver and Kimpton Hotel Group.

Prior to founding Nuance Energy, Brian led sales at SunPods Inc. – creator of the solar industry’s first pre-engineered, portable and self-ballasted PV ground mount system endorsed by the California Energy Commission in a 2014 PIER report on ballasted solar solutions. He developed the SunPods sales channel program, including project feasibility analyses and project finance for EPCs, solar developers and non profit entities. Brian secured a strategic alliance with SunPower Corporation, adding 100+ dealers to the SunPods channel program. The experience helped Brian rethink how solar ground-mounted systems should be engineered, procured, assembled and installed and served as the inspiration behind the revolutionary Osprey PowerPlatform with earth anchor foundations.

Brian is passionate about saving our environment thru solar innovation and preserving our natural resources for future generations. In his free time you may find Brian and his long time girlfriend exploring California’s amazing wineries.
