"His financial knowledge will be a major asset to us as we expand our manufacturing, marketing and sales capabilities and bring Sprint and other new solar products to market."

"I have seen first-hand how the technological limitations of existing solar systems have prevented the commercial solar market from growing as fast as it could," said Carr. "I am thrilled to join a company with products that break through these limitations, and make solar power an architecturally feasible and economically attractive choice for commercial customers."

Beamreach Solar recently named Mark Kerstens CEO, unveiled its new brand and introduced its Sprint™ lightweight photovoltaic (PV) solar panel system for flat commercial roofs. Sprint's light weight allows it to be installed on millions of commercial roofs that cannot currently support heavy conventional solar systems, dramatically expanding the market for commercial solar power systems. In addition, Sprint's high power capacity, ultra-fast install process, and other unique features provide commercial customers with a better return on investment and a lower cost of electricity than conventional solar power systems.

Beamreach Solar will be exhibiting Sprint at Intersolar North America this week at booth 7111. It will also be at Solar Power International (SPI) on September 12-15 and at other trade shows and conferences over the coming months.
