Brian O'Hara is stepping down as president of the Southeastern Wind Coalition (SEWC) to accept a job as senior vice president of strategy and government affairs at Strata Solar, a Chapel Hill, N.C.-based solar developer.
O'Hara has led development, policy and advocacy efforts in the southeast since 2009. According to the SEWC, the search for a new president/executive director is already under way.
In addition to its offshore wind potential, the southeastern U.S. is increasingly becoming a focus for the land-based U.S. wind industry, as the region can benefit from tall tower technology that is able to tap wind resources in regions with limited wind development.
