Jordan Frugé, president of Fastrac Energy Services, challenges the common misconception that solar installations are “a bunch of people running around on rooftops.” He dives into the solar industry’s intricate details and behind-the-scenes operations, emphasizing the significance of meticulous planning, efficient execution, and customer-centric growth while predicting the market’s future.
Jordan founded Fastrac, a Gulf Coast Regional solar sales, project management, and installation company, in 2019. With a wealth of experience in the residential solar market and a deep-rooted understanding of the industry’s value chain, he has spearheaded Fastrac’s emphasis on execution and fulfillment. Before Fastrac, he was CMO and co-founder of Sunnova Energy along with 2 other pioneering solar industry businesses that he and John Berger founded. So, why did he leave the pinnacle of solar success to get down in the dirt again building a fourth startup?
