Mr. Provence has nearly 20 years of expertise, has designed and installed over 200kW of battery based PV systems, and has designed, installed or consulted on over 10MW of grid interactive PV systems. He provides design consulting and inspection services to PV installation professionals, holds three NABCEP certifications as a Certified PV Installation Professional, Certified PV Technical Sales Professional and Certified Solar Thermal Installer, is a Licensed Master Electrician, and has a Marketing and Management degree from Bainbridge State College. He has become one of the most respected and highly certified solar PV Installers and Trainers in the US, and is one of a small number of people in the US who holds three certificates from NABCEP. He was also awarded Master Certified PV Trainer status from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), making him the first PV Trainer in the US to achieve all four certifications.

“I’m pleased to welcome Kelly to the team as we continue advancing New Energy’s SolarWindow™ technology toward commercialization,” stated Mr. John A. Conklin, President and CEO of New Energy Technologies, Inc. “Kelly has an intimate knowledge of electrical systems design and installation. His expertise in solar PV will be invaluable to our efforts in developing commercially viable products and systems utilizing our see-through SolarWindow™ coatings in commercial glass products and integrating them with building infrastructures to provide a source of renewable electricity generation.”

Mr. Provence founded a PV focused renewable energy design and installation company, Solairgen, the first privately held solar PV training company in the eastern US. Recognizing the need for the highest standards of integrity in the growing solar industry, he began training for and obtaining national certification in PV installation from the NABCEP, a national program that awards professional certification to photovoltaic installers in the U.S.

His passion as an environmentalist led him to involvement in the structuring of the Georgia Solar Energy Association (GSEA), volunteering as a director for three years, advocating for solar energy and lobbying state and federal politicians on environmental issues.

Realizing a need for competent and professional solar PV training, particularly in his home state of Georgia, he transitioned Solairgen into a solar training company and has developed nine PV courses, from entry level PV design, to technical sales, to advanced design and installation. He also obtained accreditation from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) for program certification and as a Master Certified PV Trainer.

Currently, Mr. Provence is the CEO of Solairgen. He provides design consulting and inspection services to PV installation professionals. He also continues to develop accredited solar PV courses and trains students from across the world with the goal to strengthen the solar industry by providing a full spectrum of training programs for solar design, installation and sales.

NABCEP is the most respected, well-established, and widely recognized certification organization for North American solar professionals. NABCEP was founded with the mission to support and work with the renewable energy and energy efficiency industries, professionals and stakeholders to develop and implement quality credentialing programs for practitioners. NABCEP’s certification programs are administered to the highest standards for testing and certification. The NABCEP PV Installation Professional and Solar Heating Installer Certifications have been accredited to the ISO/IEC 17024 standard by ANSI.

Currently under development for eventual commercial deployment in the estimated 85 million commercial buildings and homes in America, SolarWindow™ is the world’s first-of-its-kind technology capable of generating electricity on see-through glass windows and flexible plastics.

About New Energy Technologies, Inc.

New Energy Technologies, Inc., together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, is a developer of next generation alternative and renewable energy technologies. Among the Company’s technologies under development are:

  • MotionPower™ roadway systems for generating electricity by capturing the kinetic energy produced by moving vehicles – a patent-pending technology, the subject of 59 US and International patent applications. An estimated 250 million registered vehicles drive more than six billion miles on America’s roadways, every day; and
  • SolarWindow™ technologies, which generates electricity on see-through glass and flexible plastics with colored tints popular to skyscraper glass. Unlike conventional systems, SolarWindow™ can be applied to all four sides of tall towers, generating electricity using natural and artificial light conditions and even shaded areas. SolarWindow™ uses organic materials, which are dissolved into liquid, ideal for low-cost high-output manufacturing. New Energy’s SolarWindow™ is the subject of 42 patent applications.

Through established relationships with universities, research institutions, and commercial partners, we strive to identify technologies and business opportunities on the leading edge of renewable energy innovation. Unique to our business model is the use of established research infrastructure owned by the various institutions we deal with, saving us significant capital which would otherwise be required for such costs as land and building acquisition, equipment and capital equipment purchases, and other start-up expenses. As a result, we are able to benefit from leading edge research while employing significantly less capital than conventional organizations.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
