Sol Systems co-founders Yuri Horwitz and George Ashton in 2010Sol Systems was founded by Yuri Horwitz and George Ashton in 2008. They have known each other since 1997 where they met at the College of William and Mary. At the time that Sol Systems was founded, Yuri was working as a clean energy lawyer, specializing in wind development, and George was a finance professional specializing in fixed income securities and capital market investments.

From the start, our team has been committed to growing profitably and sustainably by bringing innovative project finance solutions to the solar industry. When we began, our primary focus was on aggregating SRECs throughout the East Coast and the Midwest. Since our inception, we have helped finance nearly 5,000 solar energy projects through our SREC services. We built this success through our partnership with various solar installers throughout thirteen different states.

Sol Systems offers its SRECs services to suppliers of electricity and generators of renewable energy, thereby creating a market in which both parties can buy and sell SRECs with ease. Our objective is to work with our partners to establish long-term relationships with low transaction costs to maximize the value of each SREC.  We accomplish this through low margin, high volume partnerships and a superior level of customer service.

In 2011, we launched our solar project finance services, with the goal of bridging the gap between commercial and utility-scale solar developers and investors by matching your development needs with investor capital. In the last several years the firm has emerged as one of the most dynamic solar finance firms in the country, with a primary focus on providing tax equity solutions and distributed generation financing solutions. Through our suite of financial services, including tax equity placement, take-out finance, debt, and SRECs, our experienced solar project finance team is committed to providing the industry with the knowledge and resources to transact efficiently, thereby quickening the tempo of solar project development.  

In 2014, Sol Systems was named to Inc. Magazine's prestigious fastest growing companies list for the second year in a row. Sol Systems was the winner of the 2012 Mayor's Sustainability Award, and CFO George Ashton was the winner of Washington Business Journal's CFO of the year. Yuri Horwitz was named a the Washington Region Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young.

As of August 2015, Sol Systems has facilitated financing for 333MW of solar capacity.
