WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 30, 2023 – Today, Sol Systems announced the addition of Scott Day as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Day brings decades of executive experience to the Sol Systems team and will be focused on scaling Sol Systems’ technology and customer offerings. Sol Systems is currently developing over 2 GW of new solar projects worth over $2 billion across the U.S.
Technology and infrastructure have become a leading differentiator in the renewable energy industry as projects become larger and more complex. Larger developers increasingly manage the energy and environmental commodities produced by their renewable energy projects and directly connect these projects to retail and corporate customers.
“We are excited to have Scott expand our IT infrastructure and capabilities across our businesses,” said Yuri Horwitz, Sol Systems’ Chief Executive Officer. “His unique experience better positions Sol as a renewable energy leader, enables our business to expand into new corporate offerings, and gives us the opportunity to better service our customers.”
Previously, Day spent eleven years as the CTO for SoundExchange, a global music tech company. While at SoundExchange, he transformed the company’s software platform, which led to the ability to scale and grow the business. Prior to SoundExchange, Day led the technology team behind The Motley Fool, the online-based financial services company. His early career included posts at In-Q-Tel (the strategic investment arm of the U.S. Intelligence Community), ProFund Advisors, and FOLIOfn.
Day holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Notre Dame and holds a master’s degree in information technology from the University of Virginia.
