Powering Progress Together: Meet the Team Driving Lodestar Energy Forward

Our Team

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, Jaime and Jack share responsibility for strategy, business development, client management, and financing. Under their leadership, Lodestar has successfully developed and financed over $300 million and completed 40 solar projects.
