Our Mission. Simple. Reimagine Solar.
Primal Energy Systems is a full-service renewable energy company serving Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Maryland, and DC areas. We are fully committed to providing consultation, design, and installation services for solar panel systems. Turn-key delivery of solar panel systems requires the integration of a wide variety of skills, from financial analysis, to project management, to electrical and mechanical engineering and craftsmanship. Primal Energy Systems provides it all.
Our passion is to provide energy solutions for our customers that are practical, effective, and cost-efficient. Through a rigorous assessment and design process, we ensure that you are getting a system that best matches your individual needs for the best price possible. We understand that your solar panels will be part of your home or business and that aesthetics are just as important as functionality.
Together our team has decades of experience and education in the fields of engineering, construction, finance, quality, design, and management. We have a broad base of relationships that allows us to stay up-to-date on the latest green design methods and technology. We are not an exclusive dealer for any single manufacturer, which allows us to receive and pass on competitive pricing to you, our customer.
President / Owner
Do you remember the 90's? Well that's when Jamie got his start in energy management, solar shading, and home automation. Prior to Primal Energy, Jamie led business development for Square D integrated lighting and energy management products in the Northeast market. In a nut shell Jamie is Primal Energy's Swiss Army Knife, he can do it all. Little known fact Jamie is a former Ironman Triathlon qualifier, so don't be surprised if he bikes to the job site.
Field Operations Manager
Did someone say bunch? Bill is Primal Energy's food connoisseur and leads all Saturday morning brunch meetings. He comes to us with a decorated past both as a Veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and over a decade experience in Construction Management. Bill oversees the fun part of the job, installation! Seriously thought, brunch anyone?
Sales / Marketing
Jesse is a man of simple tastes. He sports shorts to work, makes spreadsheets for fun, and loves kicking his soccer ball while talking on the phone. A Richmond native and entrepreneur to the bone. Deathly afraid of sharks yet brave enough to battle with the mysterious depths of the Chesapeake during his days as an oyster farmer. Jesse has a real passion for helping the community and spends much of his free time mentoring at his local universities and high schools as well as his childhood athletics program.
Engineering / Design
Similar to Jamie, Chris come's to Primal with two decades of experience in energy management, finance, and engineering. Chris has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Illinois, MBA from University of Virginia ( Go Wahoos! ), and a Black Belt Six Sigma, needless to say he is a mean green solar rendering machine. Also if you have questions about the best hiking equipment he is your guy, Osprey Hiking Bag or bust.
