RADNOR, PA – March 17, 2015 – Community Energy, Inc. announced today that Harry A.

(WGES), a mid-Atlantic competitive electric supplier and recognized leader in renewable energy. He received the Solar Leader – Industry award by the Maryland-D.C.-Virginia chapter of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) in 2011.
“My relationship with Community Energy began over a decade ago, when we worked together to bring marque electricity users in the mid-Atlantic the opportunity to purchase power from the first utility-scale wind power projects in the East,” said Warren. “The impressive portfolio of solar projects Community Energy has under development today promises even greater opportunities for electricity users to meet sustainability goals and stabilize energy costs. I’m looking forward to expanding Community Energy’s business footprint in the Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Delmarva markets.”
Warren will also be leading a range of new programs that allow environmentally conscious customers of all types and sizes to benefit from solar power’s improving economics. “Progressive laws and regulations around the country are opening up new solar purchasing opportunities including community solar programs, solar gardens, and virtual net metering.
