Meet our New Sandbox Solar CEO, Ian Skor
Over the summer Sandbox Solar has experienced a change in management. Former co-CEO Ian Skor has taken the reins of Sandbox Solar and is now the sole owner and CEO of the company. Starting with an old Subaru and tool box, Ian has worked his way from basic solar installer to creating and running his own premium solar company here in Fort Collins, Colorado. With vast experience in the solar industry and as an engineer, his focus is providing our community energy self-sufficiency. Therefore, Ian is taking Sandbox Solar to new heights by making solar more accessible to all while promoting the use of renewable energy.

What is SPADE our Agrivoltaic Software?
Spade is an agrivoltaic software that helps farmers optimize the use of their land for solar energy production, agricultural practices, and water usage. By using data analytics and machine learning, the agrivoltaic software helps farmers identify the best locations for their solar panels. This determines the optimal panel placement to maximize energy production, maximize crop yield and minimize water usage. SPADE also provides farmers with real-time monitoring and analytics tools to track the performance of their solar panels.
SPADE is a valuable tool for farmers looking to optimize their land use and take advantage of the benefits of solar energy production and agriculture. If your interested in learning more about SPADE or Agrivoltaics visit these pages and try out our software!
