Elevated Solar is the first Vertically Integrated Solar Company for Mid-Scale Commercial Solar
Bill Adelson is recognized as one of a handful of experts in the California solar carport industry. Combining an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business with high-level training in architecture and construction, Bill has been at the forefront of California’s evolution into solar carports over the past 10 years.
Following a degree in Architecture from Princeton University, Bill trained on design teams for high-rise office building projects throughout the USA. After moving to California in 2004, and recognizing that California’s school systems were openly adopting these systems, Bill joined with the most advanced steel fabricators in California to investigate, adopt, and deploy the most efficient solar carports on the market, while still maintaining the high level of integrity necessary for projects built near and around schools.
Tuan leads the construction and field operations for ESP. Tuan began his career as a framing contractor (a carpenter), and he continuously advanced his career over nearly 20 years, rising to a foreman of complex building crews. In the recession of 2008, Tuan moved to the solar industry, becoming the general foreman for one of San Diego’s premier solar installers. Tuan holds a General Building B License, an Electrical C-10 License, and a C-46 Solar Installer’s License.
Tuan’s work previously at the Temecula Valley Unified School District established him as California’s leading builder of solar carports. At Temecula, Tuan and his teams installed 6.0 MW of carport canopies, on 18 sites, in 7 weeks. We are unaware of any DSA school district project matching the scope and speed of this installation.
