Bobby's favorite project: "White Mountain School- our first project, made the dream a reality!"
Bobby Lambert is a co-founder of SunRaise Investments and is an expert on all aspects of solar development financing. Bobby attended the University of New Hampshire, earning degrees in both Environmental Economics and Sustainable Policy in 2012. Since graduating he has successfully led the structured financing of over $100 million of tax-equity leveraged solar projects across the United States. From origination through operation, Bobby relishes using his education, experience and talent to grow the installed capacity of SunRaise's continuously expanding solar portfolio.
When he is not knee deep in excel files and term sheets, Bobby loves to golf, ski and explore New Hampshire with his wife and their dog, G.
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.

Matt's favorite project: "My favorite project thus far is a portfolio of 5 projects at the Rochester Schools in Rochester, NH. The School Department fully embraced the undertaking and not only with from the meaningful cost savings from our electricity but also for their students, whether they be in elementary, middle or high school, are now able to learn and benefit from the educational aspects that these 5 solar projects contain. As someone who attempts to always maintain the mindset of a student, this is exciting and gratifying to me."

On weekends, Matt spends much his time hiking and has “bagged” all 48 four thousand foot peaks in New Hampshire, among several other mountains in New England.
Joe's favorite project: "One of my favorite projects was the 2.2MW Easthampton Landfill project. This was one of the first large-scale solar arrays in MA, and it was the first solar array to be installed on a landfill in the Commonwealth. Designing a landfill racking system, navigating the post-closure use process with DEP as well as the interconnection process with the utility were all new experiences for me and my colleagues. This project proved that solar is low-impact and a great use for a capped landfill, and it will save Easthampton, the smallest City in MA, more than $1M over the first 10 years of operation."
Joe Harrison is one of Massachusetts’s top solar project developers. Over his career he has successfully developed over 67 commercial solar projects in Massachusetts with a focus on large-scale solar net metering projects within municipal, landfill/brownfield, agricultural, and higher education markets.
