Rob D. Wallace, Jr., MA
Rob (Daniel) Wallace is a Co-Founder of Power52 Foundation, Founder and a Principal in Power52 Energy Solutions, Power52 Foundation's sister company. An electrical & energy engineer, project manager and business consultant, Rob has more than 11 years-experience in program management, renewable energy systems design and development, systems implementation, training and technology management. Rob has developed and built more than 100 MW of solar and wind projects in the U.S. Some noteworthy clients include University of Maryland Medical Systems, Johns Hopkins University, City of Baltimore, Carroll County Government, CHIMES International, and the Federal Government.
His flagship accomplishment was the development of BITHENERGY’s HRES (Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems) solution for residential and commercial structural retrofits. Recognizing that solar PV energy systems have limitations, and that wind power based clean energy generation also has its drawbacks, Mr. Wallace designed, built, installed, and successfully tested a user-friendly integrated PV & wind-based small energy system that can be modified for use on both small and large commercial and residential buildings. The test system, installed on a residential townhome in Baltimore’s Cherry Hill neighborhood, is realizing energy savings and serves as a model of the future in clean energy for low-income housing.
Under Mr. Wallace’s leadership, in 2014 BITHENERGY was ranked #8 in the Country for Solar Developers and #49 for Solar Contractors. In 2015 BITHENERGY was ranked #1 by Fortune Magazine for the fastest growing “Inner City Business” in the country. In addition, BITHENERGY has just recently been awarded the first task order under the MATOC (Multiple Award Task Order Contract) for the Department of Army (7 Giga Watt opportunity). Mr. Wallace has over 100MWs of solar projects constructed, and over 200MWs in various stages of development/construction including the only successful VANM (Virtual Aggregate Net Metering) and bilateral settlement power clearing systems in the region.
