Without further adieu, here’s the team!
JOE BONANDER: With 6 years of experience, Joe’s sales tactics are well-developed and on point. A Turlock native, Joe grew up farming almonds with his dad in their small orchard. His upbeat personality is always a positive reinforcement for the team on an early Monday morning. Joe covers Madera County through San Joaquin County, he says his favorite part about his job is the diversity of agriculture in his territory.
FRED MONTGOMERY: Fred has been with JKB Energy for 5 years and covers the southern region from Kern to Fresno Counties. With over 15 years of experience in the agricultural industry, his passion for renewable energy shines through his day to day interactions with customers and JKB Energy team members. Fred’s “customer first” mentality and attention to detail have made JKB Energy the elite solar PV contractor that it is today.
STEVE FAUGHN: Steve covers the territory from Merced County to the Northern Sacramento Valley. With over 20 years of extensive experience in the construction industry, Steve understands the intricacies of solar. Steve has been with JKB Energy for over 6 years now and enjoys the challenges that his job brings, as well as working at a company that treats their employees and customers with respect. “One of the best parts about my job is being able to save my customers money. Our experienced team makes it easy to deal with all customer questions. We know how to keep the process simple and our customers save money from day one!”
STEVE SILVA: Steve has been with JKB Energy for almost 2 years now and covers a large territory from Bakersfield out to San Luis Obispo. He is constantly helping clients find avenues to achieve their clean energy goals. He was in the farm equipment business for over 20 years which is the driving force behind his passion for the ag industry. Steve has been involved in ag all of his life and is still maintains his dairy in Hanford.
TED VISS: With 55 years of family farming experience from turkeys to trees, Ted covers a wide territory in the San Joaquin Valley. Ted is always looking to bring in new solar customers and new business opportunities for JKB Energy. “I’ve had an interest in renewable energy for as long as I can remember,” Ted mentions. “After talking with many of my dairy friends over the years, I was convinced that the solar industry was going to take off. And it has!” This interest eventually led him to diversify from farming to solar sales. Ted hopes to make “going solar” an exciting and simple process for everyone while building valuable life-long relationships.
