Early in 2014, Jeffrey Macel and Jaime Smith co-founded Lodestar Energy and began assembling a team of experts with broad experience developing and financing energy projects. Their belief was that the combined knowledge of a multi-disciplinary organization would provide invaluable insights and solutions to other organizations. Their simple goal: to develop great solar energy projects that are environmentally, socially, and financially successful. Jeffrey and Jaime share responsibility for strategy, business development, client management, and financing. Under their leadership, Lodestar has successfully developed and financed over $100 million in solar projects in its first 3 years.
