ABOUT US

Growing local economies with solar energy.


 

EXPERIENCE. 

GreenKey is a leader in the growing solar landscape. With over fifteen years of solar industry experience and 200 megawatts of solar development, GreenKey Solar has a strong and ever- expanding success record in developing and consulting solar projects across the country. 

Our team has the expertise to manage each phase of the development process – from diligence to strategic partnerships to project management to financing. GreenKey Solar can execute any stage or all stages of a project. We are also flexible enough to offer custom services to clients and partners up and down the solar development and procurement stream.

 

COMPANY MISSION & VALUES.

Our operations rest on two pillars – integrity and transparency. We execute projects with honesty and respect for landowners and clients alike. We are fully committed to providing our partners with accurate and fair assessments and we strive to communicate openly and effectively. We are fully invested in the mutual success of our landowners, strategic partners, and ultimately the communities that benefit from solar energy.

We practice what we preach. Our original headquarters outside of Danville, VA is 100% powered by solar energy. We installed the project ourselves (alongside some gracious family and friends). Our Danville roots – located on a working family farm – enables GreenKey Solar to  be in tune with the rural landowners we frequently work with. 

 

PERSONAL QUESTS.

Outside of our love for solar, we are passionate about the outdoors. If we’re not in the office or on site, we’re likely hunting, fishing, hiking, or depending on the weather, on a mountain or in the surf. We are committed to conservation – on a mission to preserve the great outdoors for our future generations. This personal quest is what drives our work in the solar industry.

Tori brings first hand land development, construction, and real estate experience to the GreenKey Solar team. Born and raised in Colorado Springs, Tori currently resides in Denver. Tori’s career in land development began with a local Colorado development firm that specialized in small format build to suit grocery and retail facilities. While Tori’s initial role focused on planning and entitlements, she quickly grew into a role that included efforts on all aspects of the development process from real estate transactions to construction management. Tori spent most days on the construction site, allowing her the unique opportunity to understand what it really takes to complete a development project. From 3am concrete pours, to Saturday site walks, Tori enjoyed having a hands-on impact in the local community.

After two years in this role, Tori received an opportunity to work on the consulting side of land development, obtaining a position as a Site Development Coordinator at Galloway & Company, Inc., an architecture and engineering firm. In this role, Tori was able to work with many different national retail clients and landowners, pursing a variety of development projects ranging in scope. Understanding the engineering and architecture standards and processes plus a focus on budget management and schedule coordination allowed Tori a unique understanding of land development.

Outside of the office you can find Tori enjoying the outdoors typically taking weekends to visit the Colorado Rockies. Tori loves to travel and experience new parts of the country or world. Tori is passionate about giving back to her local community with weekly participation in a Denver organization working to bridge the hunger-gap affecting children in Denver Public Schools.
