DENNIS COX

CEO - Principal

​Dennis has been a leader in the solar industry for about 21 years. Starting his solar career as an installer, his leadership  skills and talent, quickly gained him the title of Director of Operations for Unlimited Energy - one of the first solar companies in central California. After being scouted by SolarCity in its infancy, he became the company's first Regional Director, opening his first office in Fresno, CA.  Advancing to Regional Vice President, he opened and directed regional offices from Bakersfield to the Oregon border. For a time, he even went back and forth between California, and the East Coast opening offices in Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey. In his career at SolarCity, Dennis went from directing a modest office in Fresno, to running 13 offices with approximately 800+ company employees working under his leadership.  After taking a short sabbatical, Dennis joined the team at Planet Solar as Chief Operations Officer for 2 1/2 years.
