He has in-depth experience as a home energy auditor and solar panel installer. Kevin is NABCEP certified and loves helping people and businesses transition to clean energy.

Keith has four years of solar experience, is NABCEP certified, holds a Civil Engineering degree from Ohio State, and has in-depth technical knowledge and policy expertise on energy and the environment.

Kurt Dieringer, Solar Consultant
Professional designations and industry-related accomplishments:
I have two years of experience in solar and a total of four years in the clean energy industry. I focus on consulting with homeowners to create the best solar solution for their energy needs. A real hurdle that artificially raises the price of systems is the permitting process that most jurisdictions require. Because of a process that is behind the times, largely unnecessary and expensive, systems can cost as much as 5% more than they could otherwise. Lower cost, of course, translates to increased adoption, so fixing the permitting process is critical to growing rooftop solar. Outside of work, I love playing music and spending time with my family doing outdoor activities.
Candice Brothers, Project Manager
I’ve spent three years working in the solar industry. At EcoHouse Solar, I keep the project moving from point of sale to installation. If I could fix one thing about the solar industry, it would be expanding “solar rights” to every state, meaning HOA’s and city boards can’t stop homeowners from installing solar panels. When not at work, I enjoy playing board games and crochet.
Jeff Miller, Residential Sales & Installation
At Ecohouse, I turn sales leads into solar projects, design systems, and assist with installation work (on the DC side). I have been in the solar industry for 14 months. HOA’s wield too much power, being able to deny homeowners the RIGHT to acquire solar – the rules need to be changed ASAP. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, playing music & going to concerts, tournament bowling, golfing, astronomy, and homebrewing.
Sean McGeehan, Solar Installer
I have been working for EcoHouse Solar since January 2019. I studied Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech and am currently taking classes with Solar Energy International to become a NABCEP certified installer. I arrange the shipment of construction materials and oversee our photovoltaic installations. I want to see the deterrents to grid-tied solar production eliminated, the utility companies need to adapt to new distributed generation systems instead of discouraging renewable energy alternatives. When I’m not working, I love to run trails and cook– I make some mean guacamole.
Michael Brennan, Commercial Solar Sales
I have worked in the Solar Industry for more than five years. I started working with Dovetail Solar and then joined Ecohouse Solar one year ago. Because non-profit entities cannot avail themselves of the Federal Tax Credits or bonus depreciation schedules, they have a difficult time affording solar energy. If I could fix one thing in the solar industry it would be to find a way to make solar more affordable to nonprofit organizations including churches and municipalities. When not at work, I enjoy performing with Ohio Playback Theater, practicing Tai Chi and Chi Gong, and spending time with his three god-children.
