Pat's favorite project: "The next project." Joking aside, the Gilroy Unified School District project, as it represents our first project in California and our first parking lot canopy project (in my opinion, all parking lots should have them).

Patrick Jackson is a co-founder of SunRaise Investments and is primarily responsible for business development and general company strategy. His relentless drive and optimism result in a variety of great partnerships with solar developers, land owners and municipalities. Pat spends most of his working hours acquiring projects that are in some stage of development by working as a partner to overcome the remaining obstacles, entitlements, construction and financing that are required for each project to come to fruition. Thus far, this has led to over $100 million of solar projects developed and financed by SunRaise, with an additional $200 million of projects under development. Pat has a guiding principle of making the process easy for partners, no matter what role they play in the sequencing of a project, in hopes that it leads to more solar in the world and more solar with SunRaise. Pat is a Bates College graduate.
When Pat is not working, you can find him playing pretty much any sport he can get his hands on, adventuring on the water and land around the seacoast with his wife and their dog, "Rags," enjoying live music, and spending lots of time with his family and friends.
