Longtime Davis resident Daniel Parrella has announced that he is expanding Spearhead Solar to include solar panel installations. Previously, his company was a solar consulting and community organizing firm specializing in group deals for solar power.
“We are very excited to get into the installation side of the industry,” Parrella said in a news release. “Davis is well on its way to 5 percent market penetration and we are happy to be a part of it.”
Spearhead Solar was responsible for the successful Solarize Davis effort, which resulted in 19 installations across the city. The company plans for Solarize Davis to be an annual event; it’s scheduled to begin again in late July.
Spearhead Solar will serve the East Bay Area as well as the Sacramento metropolitan area. The company currently employs four people and is hiring two more salespeople to cover the East Bay, Parrella said.
