Geronimo Wind Energy has launched a solar project development practice and changed its name to Geronimo Energy. The company plans to develop solar projects for commercial, industrial and utility clients.

"The solar market opportunity has become very clear, given the tremendous cost declines in the industry that are making solar power competitive in new markets, such as the Midwest, where we have focused," explains Blake Nixon, president of Geronimo Energy.

The company has hired Nathan Franzen as director of solar development to lead its foray into the solar market. Franzen comes to Geronimo Energy from Westwood Professional Services, where he was director of solar energy. His experience includes oversight and project management of more than 100 commercial- and utility-scale solar projects in 16 states.
