Jason was born in the Southern Tier of New York State and primarily grew up in Concord, New Hampshire. He attended College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, where he established his undying love for Maine, and is a graduate of Pace University School of Law, Cum Laude with Certificate in Environmental Law following internships and clinics at the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic, Office of the Maine Attorney General and the Pace Energy Project. Jason is admitted to practice law in Maine and New Hampshire.
He began his practice of law in 2002 at an innovative New Hampshire law-firm with a national practice in renewable energy project finance and development. After honing his solar energy project finance and project development skills for several years as lender’s and developer’s counsel, Jason was recruited to go in-house at the nation’s then-pioneering solar energy services provider in 2007. For ten years he applied his creative problem solving skills and attention to detail to help establish that solar energy business as it grew from a great idea to become the world’s largest publicly traded renewable energy company before ultimately succumbing to the harsh realities of its short-sighted capitalistic business practices.
Having experienced the full life cycle of a “business as usual” solar energy business model, Jason is particularly pleased and proud to be able to apply his experience and skills towards the achievement of ReVision Energy’s B Corporation Vision, Mission and Values since he joined ReVision Energy in the spring of 2017.
As Project Financing Counsel, Jason works with towns, municipalities and other forward-looking organizations to reduce their energy burden on our environment by partnering to create the various power purchase agreements, construction agreements and other project agreements necessary to make ReVision Energy solar projects a reality.
When not practicing PV-Law, you can find Jason “campering” with his wife Erika, son Elliot and daughter Azalea around Maine, cycling around the Kennebec Valley on his hand-built bike, hiking and kite flying all over the region, or enjoying his record collection in the sweet spot of his Hallowell home. Jason currently has several energy-related home improvement projects underway at his 1800s-era house – including air sourced heat pumps and various other energy efficiency improvements.
