Meridian has already opened its office with a business development director, who also happens to be the former director of CPS Energy’s solar rebate program. McCalla says that the Austin-based company will hire project designers first, as project planning dictates, followed by engineers. Even though Meridian Solar only has about 40 employees, it built two of the largest solar plant projects in Texas. It has built out more solar capacity in the state than any other company, and boasts clients including IBM, Starbucks, and the ranch of Willie Nelson.
So how about it Texas, is Houston next? We’ll be watching.
