Marquis Matthews understands the challenges of dramatic career transitions. He shares his experiences in today’s excellent podcast. 

In 2014, the U.S. Navy veteran and diver refocused from the sea to the sun. After years in the offshore oil and gas industry, he pivoted to solar. Marquis indulged an entrepreneurial itch in 2017, then reinvented himself three years later to work as an employee for Energy Support Services.

Annapolis, Maryland-based Energy Support Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of New Energy Equity, handles operations and maintenance (O&M)  and asset management for commercial and industrial (C&I) projects across the U.S. Founded in 2014,  ESS currently has more than 170 megawatts under contract for 30 entities in 15 states.

Marquis credits his experience in the military and fossil fuel production for igniting his interest in renewables — and ultimately leveraging his aquanaut skills to address the energy crisis. It’s an exciting journey for a man who had childhood dreams of becoming an astronaut, and you’ll hear all about it today. Please join us.
