To kick off 2017, Sandbar Solar has launched an “Employee of the Month” program. Each month we will be showcasing an employee who has demonstrated exceptional work, dedication, creativity and drive. This month we’d like to recognize

From there, his demonstrated knowledge, skill, and leadership qualities grew him into his current Residential Crew Lead role.
