The Solbridge Story

Solbridge Energy Advisors started from a desire to offer a more thorough and unbiased approach to going solar. Our founders met working for two of the largest solar installation companies in the country, where they loved the relationship building and education process, but were frustrated by only being able to offer people one set of products from one company.

Their response was to change the way that people go solar. We prioritize the goals and objectives of end users, helping you find the best solutions for your specific needs. The result is a more thorough and personal approach, free of sales pressure and full of honest, unbiased attention to detail.

Founding Members

Greg Winks has been active in promoting and developing the solar industry in Western Pennsylvania for the past eight years. Working on both residential and grid-scale development in Pennsylvania, Mr. Winks honed his knowledge of the industry, along with the economic and environmental benefits of solar energy. Mr. Winks currently serves as Vice President of Solar Unified Network of Western Pennsylvania, a solar advocacy trade organization. Prior to entering the renewable energy industry, Mr. Winks spent 25 years in the real estate sector.  When not spending time with his business, Mr. Winks is a passionate fan of Pittsburgh and Purdue University sports teams, and his great love of family, including seven grandchildren.

Will Brown takes pride in helping consumers understand and navigate the complex process of going solar. Will combines his professional experience in energy transmission, materials science, process engineering, logistics, and community outreach to find innovative applications for solar energy and other renewables. With a lifelong passion for the outdoors, Will aims to inspire and educate the leaders among us who are poised to preserve the healthy future of this planet and the communities we live in. Will earned his undergraduate degree in Environmental Science from Connecticut College, with a focus in Geology and Renewable Energy Technologies. 

Will and Greg met in 2016 working for SolarCity (now Tesla Energy) as solar energy consultants. During their tenure, their team led the east coast in solar installations. Despite this achievement, they shared a frustration with the limitations of consulting on behalf of a single installation company. In September of 2017, Solbridge Energy Advisors was founded to change this paradigm. By prioritizing the goals of end users, Solbridge makes the process of going solar more straightforward and user-friendly, while creating opportunities for greater innovation and cost competition among service providers.
