Jay Leopold

Founder and Director of SkyPower Corporation, Scottsdale, Arizona

Jay is one of the few guys who studied solar engineering back in the 70’s. He earned his engineering degree from the University of Michigan, and back in those days solar engineers went into the computer technology industry. Jay did just that. He started and operated one of Chicago’s first microcomputer companies, and he had a great run of it for more than 30 years. When the time came for him to make a change, he decided to utilize his education and training in the field of solar engineering.

It didn’t take long to see that solar electric power wouldn’t work in cloudy Chicago, so in 2005, Jay and his wife Sara, moved to Arizona to start SkyPower, a leading-edge solar electric business. Today, the company is poised for substantial growth in the renewable technology industry. SkyPower is positioned to drive solar electric to the forefront of everyday use in family homes and businesses alike.

Jay is known for his keen engineering mind and wry sense of humor, which surface in your first conversation with him. He hosted Season 1 of “The Renewable Power Hour” which aired Saturdays on KPHX 1490 Radio and Season 2, which aired Thursdays on KFNX 1100 AM in Phoenix. You can currently hear Jay hosting Season 3 of “The Renewable Power Hour”–easily accessed on the SkyPower website at http://skypoweraz.com/radio-show-season-3/.

Renewable resources are the future, and your future starts now!
