Rob Erlichman started Sunlight Electric in 2002 under the belief that raising the level of innovation, service, and professionalism in the solar industry will help speed the adoption of this important renewable energy technology. Now a leader in Northern California in commercial solar power, Sunlight Electric continues to set new standards for innovative system design, creating compelling business cases for solar, and for customer service and accountability.
Before founding Sunlight Electric, Erlichman was a technology marketing executive and entrepreneur, a management strategy consultant at Booz-Allen & Hamilton, and one of Procter & Gamble's youngest brand managers at the age of twenty-five. Erlichman holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University in Applied Economics.
In addition to his role at Sunlight Electric, Erlichman is a frequent and entertaining speaker on the topic of commercial solar power and is involved in industry-wide efforts to help accelerate the adoption of solar power. He co-authored a white paper featured in the Red Herring magazine entitled, "What the Solar Power Industry Can Learn from Google" and has also advised The Clean Energy States Alliance on ways their member state solar subsidy program managers can implement standards and practices that level the playing field for manufacturers and solar integrators and ensure transparency for consumers. Rob also has served on the advisory council for Entrepreneurship@Cornell, an innovative multi-disciplinary effort to connect Cornell students with University-wide entrepreneurship resources, and currently serves on the advisory council of the Dean of Cornell’s College of Human Ecology.
