Georgia Solar Energy Association names new executive director

The Georgia Solar Energy Association (GA Solar) announced Don Moreland as new executive director of the nonprofit. GA Solar was established in 2008 and is the oldest and only non-profit based in Georgia focused solely on growing a thriving solar industry in the state.

“We are thrilled to have Don, a longtime collaborator and solar champion, at the helm of GA Solar,” said GA Solar board co-chair Jennette Gayer. “Don will help grow the rooftop solar market and our organization to new success.” 

Moreland, an attorney, and owner of Solar Crowdsource, served as the nonprofit’s chair of board of directors 2017-2018 and chair of its policy committee 2021-present. He fills the recently unoccupied position as the organization implements a plan for strategic growth to bring more value to its members and engages in important solar energy legislation before lawmakers now at the state capitol and critical proceedings at the Georgia Public Service Commission later this year. 

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve GA Solar in a new capacity during such an important year for solar energy in Georgia. GA Solar is the oldest and most well-established solar advocacy organization in Georgia and should play an important role in consumer protection legislation and provide more opportunities for every-day Georgians to participate in the new clean energy economy,” said Moreland. 

Moreland started working in the Georgia solar industry in 2011, first developing utility-scale solar projects and now owner of Solar Crowdsource, a company that has presided over 14 “Solarize” programs and facilitated over 1,000 solar installations across Georgia including Savannah, Macon, Athens, and Atlanta. A native Georgian, Moreland was born in Decatur, GA and grew up in Marietta, GA. He holds a juris doctor degree from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut and a bachelor’s degree from Georgia State University.
