Specializing in battery and inverter systems, Jason brings a comprehensive knowledge of energy storage systems to the market.  Jason holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.  He actively participates in the development of national standards NFPA 855 and UL 9540.  Jason looks forward to being a leader in the transition of the national electrical grid in a world of increasing electrification.
