Adger Solar’s development efforts in the South Carolina and Georgia markets are jointly managed by Tim Daniels and David Capparelli.
Daniels leads Adger’s origination of power purchase and utility interconnection agreements; and Capparelli manages the engineering, design and construction of Adger’s photovoltaic power plants. Bill Moore oversees Adger’s local legal, community and state outreach, and permitting activities; and Theo de Wolff provides executive level management of Adger’s commercial arrangements, market strategy and external financing.
Theo de Wolff
Mr. de Wolff is the co-founder of and a Principal in Virginia Solar LLC (www.vasolarllc.com), the leading developer of utility-scale solar projects in Virginia. Scott Solar, Virginia Solar’s first project in Powhatan County, 17MW(ac), started commercial operations in December, 2016 and is currently owned by Dominion Virginia Power. In 2017 five Virginia Solar projects with a combined nameplate capacity of 97 MWAC will be built, including:
- UVA Hollyfield: a solar facility in King William County that was commercialized through a partnership of the University of Virginia and Dominion Virginia Power.
- Four projects in Buckingham, New Kent, Powhatan and Sussex Counties which were commercialized through an innovative commercial and financing structure involving Amazon Web Services, Dominion Energy, Inc. and Virginia Solar.
Earlier Mr. de Wolff was a co-founder in 1998 of Atlantic Renewable Energy, the first renewable energy development company to focus on markets in the northeastern US. Atlantic Renewable Initiated 675 MW of the first commercial wind projects in this market. including the largest new clean-energy facility in the eastern U.S. -- the 325MW Maple Ridge Wind Farm (Lowville, NY). In 2005, Atlantic Renewable was acquired by PPM Energy, now part of Iberdrola Renewables (a European utility that owns and operates the largest fleet of wind energy generating facilities in the world). Atlantic Renewable developed a reputation for fairness, integrity and transparency in dealing with both landowners and host communities that is a matter of public record.
Later Mr. de Wolff was a principal in a Midwest-based company that initiated the development of more than 1,000 MW of wind projects now in operation; and more recently has arranged construction and term financing for an additional 500 MW of wind projects, employing innovative techniques that won him the “2014 Commercial Achievement Award” at the annual AWEA financing conference.
Mr. Moore is one of the most experienced renewable energy developers now active in the eastern US. His broad experience in the energy industry, which dates to 1979, encompasses stints as a utility regulatory analyst, a project finance banker, the co-founder of the earliest commercial wind development company to focus on the eastern seaboard, the lead developer of the largest wind energy farm in eastern North America, and the Chief Executive Officer of the leading offshore wind development company in the US.
As a co-founder of Atlantic Renewable Energy Corp. Mr. Moore was the lead developer of that company’s pioneering portfolio of 675 MW of commercial wind farms in New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia – including the largest new clean-energy facility in the eastern U.S., the 325 MW Maple Ridge Wind Farm (Lowville, NY).
More recently Mr. Moore served as CEO for Deepwater Wind, the nation’s leading offshore wind-energy company. Mr. Moore managed the development of Deepwater’s 30MW Block Island Wind Farm – the first such offshore wind energy facility in the U.S., now operating in Rhode Island Sound.
After founding Hudson Energy Development in 2013, along with Tim Daniels, Mr. Moore has:
- initiated a 100 MW solar farm proposal for the Long Island Power Authority in eastern Suffolk County, NY
- jointly initiated the 100 MW Galloo Island Wind Farm in Jefferson County (a development project now owned by Apex Clean Energy)
- initiated several other wind and solar developments in NYS and other select markets.
Mr. Moore received a BA in Economics and Political Science, cum laude, from Yale College in 1978; studied at the London School of Economics; and also received an MBA from the Yale School of Management in 1988. Read More
Mr. Daniels was a co-founder of Hudson Energy Development in 2013, and a co-founder of Adger Solar in 2014. Tim spearheaded the creation of Adger’s 750 MW portfolio of greenfield solar projects in South Carolina, overseeing the site identification, evaluation, and technical analysis, along with the market analysis, that is largely responsible for Adger’s early success in this emerging solar market.
Prior to starting Adger Solar, Mr. Daniels' career has included senior positions in federal and local government, and in the private sector with both early-stage alternative energy technology development companies and larger established firms. Throughout his career, Mr. Daniels has been a leading voice in support of the development and integration of emerging clean energy technologies into the US electric grid.
Mr. Daniels served as Senior Vice President of Market Development for Deepwater Wind, LLC, for three years. In addition to managing many aspects of external affairs for the company, he oversaw development activities in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut markets for Deepwater's 3,000 MW of proposed offshore wind projects in federal waters and two HVDC, multi-terminal submarine transmission networks.
Prior to joining Deepwater Wind, Mr. Daniels served as Vice President of Energy Policy for Constellation Energy, Inc, He represented and supported the company's wholesale and retail commodity businesses, its nuclear group, and its project development group in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and the six New England states.
Mr. Daniels earned a BA in Political Science from Emory University and a MS in Environmental Science and Policy from Johns Hopkins University. Read More
David Capparelli was formerly an executive at Suzlon North America, a leading wind energy company, and before that FPL Energy. With 25 years of experience in the energy industry, Mr. Capparelli provides additional development and engineering support and further diversifies the Adger Solar team, with his considerable experience in both M&A and manufacturing sectors. Mr. Capparelli started as an engineer, earning his Professional Engineering license within 4 years; and initially was tasked with designing, and supervising the construction and commissioning of, combined cycle gas plants.
Mr. Capparelli started his development career developing biomass and waste-to-energy projects in Italy for Kamine Development; and soon thereafter he joined FPL Energy at the infancy of NextEra’s wind energy’s era, participating in setting the foundation for the largest wind energy company in the US. At FPL Energy, Mr. Capparelli acquired wind projects, worked on the first re-powerings in the wind industry, and started some of the first green field development for FPL Energy. Mr. Capparelli moved on to be one of the founders of RES North America, which currently has been responsible for developing and constructing over 7,000 MW of operating wind farms in the US and Canada. Before joining Adger Solar, Mr. Capparelli led the sales and negotiations of approximately 2,000 MW of Suzlon turbines with a value in excess of $2 billion. He also served as President of SURE Power, LLC, Suzlon’s North America’s development company and was responsible for co-development activities, where he participated in the successful completion of over 300 MW of projects, as well as the purchase, sale and financing of a number of projects.
