ROCKLIN, Calif., May 30, 2018 — JLM Energy announced today that long-time solar executive Erin Clark has been appointed CEO of the Rocklin-based company.
Clark takes over the reigns as CEO from co-founder Farid Dibachi’s nearly 8-year journey of leading the company from inception to launching innovative energy storage products including Phazr, Gridz, and Energizr.
Clark joined JLM as Chief Operations Officer in April 2017. He is a veteran of the consumer solar industry and spent several years managing and leading solar companies. He is a native of Fresno and currently lives in Rocklin with his wife and two children.
JLM Energy Co-Founder Kraig Clark said, “This is the logical progression of a company of this size and given the trajectory that we are on we felt that now was the right time for Erin to lead the company forward. We have transitioned from a product development focus to market execution and rapid growth in a hot industry. It makes sense to have an executive with deep experience in the solar industry to lead our next phase of growth.”
Erin Clark said, “We are poised to take JLM to the next level. The energy storage space is growing at lightning speed. Led by Gridz and our newest innovation, Phazr, our sales have exploded – up more than 425% from last year. Even our conservative projections for future quarters show this growth only accelerating.”
To date, JLM has thousands of Phazr units operational in California, Arizona, Connecticut, Hawaii and North Carolina. To keep up with demand JLM has partnered with CED Greentech to stock product across California and Arizona.
Phazr MicroStorage is the only plug-and-play energy storage rooftop unit that goes directly under the solar panel. Phazr installs in a matter of minutes. JLM’s innovative optimization software, Measurz works behind-the-scenes to continually monitor and optimize solar, storage and building consumption for both residential and commercial applications.
Dibachi told employees, “It’s time to step aside and make room for all of you to take the company forward.”
