United Wind Announces Key Leadership Team Hires

A veteran of the distributed solar industry, Yurcisin previously served as Senior Vice President of Sales for NRG Home Solar, where he led a team of 600 and helped establish NRG as the 4th largest residential solar provider in the country. His team served twelve states where they offered leases, PPA’s and loans to their solar customers. Joseph led all departments in the sales process including lead generation, direct, inside and community solar sales, sales processing and customer experience.

“I am delighted to join United Wind’s talented team and play a role in helping the company achieve the tremendous potential I believe it is capable of reaching,” said Yurcisin. “The distributed wind industry is poised for significant growth and I have no doubt that United Wind’s groundbreaking lease program will help the company establish itself as a pioneer in that growth. I am excited to be a part of the team and see that growth first hand.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to join a company with the extraordinary vision of United Wind,” said Futernik. “The potential for such a positive environmental impact is something that very much motivates me and I strongly believe that developing the technology which fuels the company will be a big factor in making that happen.”

According to the Distributed Wind Energy Association (DWEA), by 2030 there will be 23.7 million properties suitable for distributed wind, representing a potential for 1,100 GW of generating capacity in the U.S. DWEA also estimates that other related market segments, such as community wind, wind gardens, and virtual metered systems, could boost the potential for non-windfarm wind-generated energy to 1,400 GW. The energy production potential for the 1,100 GW in 2030 is estimated at 2,900 TWh which is 70% of the net electricity generation in the U.S. in 2014.
