“Every time a new customer purchases our product, a new team member joins our company or an investor finances our assets, Palmetto is one step closer leading the world towards a clean energy future” - Christopher Kemper, Founder, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Palmetto History

We have a rich history dating back to 2009. Chris Kemper, started Palmetto in 2009 with an ambition to lead the world towards a clean energy future. The Founders core strength resides in renewable energy development, policy, and financial structuring. The founders advised the world’s largest firms – energy, utility, investment groups and sovereign wealth funds – in the creation and establishment of clean energy & environmental portfolios.

Since then, the founder built a corporate track record in more than twenty countries.  Today, instead of advising others on how to build their portfolios, we now build, own and operate our own projects – acting as principles. We believe this creates a stronger offering to our customers – residential, commercial and utility customers – seeking solar solutions to their energy issues.
Palmetto’s management team has over 100 years of collective experience in the clean energy sector. The management team brings together a unique skill set and experiences ranging from well known  organizations such as World Bank, General Electric, Moody’s, Ned Bank and Tradition Financial Services.

This management team, together with a strong operational team, provides the support and foundation for success to achieve Palmetto’s initiatives. Additionally, the management team has successfully managed public offerings and private take-outs.
