SoCore Energy

SoCore Energy LLC is humble, hungry, and smart — it’s actually the company’s motto. SoCore Energy is the market leader in solar portfolio development and commercial rooftop installations. By combining engineering excellence and financial innovation, the company has discovered how to reduce the operational and bottom-line expense of solar energy implementation, cut energy costs, and hedge against utility-rase increase. Founder Pete Kadens and his Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC) team finished in third place at the 2008 competition and took home $10,000. Almost 10 years later, SoCore Energy continues to live up to their motto. Follow @SoCore_Solar, to see how they continue to heat up.
