After years of managing large energy consumers (i.e., luxury hotels), Scot Hopps transitioned to a role where he could help reduce consumption. At Waterline Alternative Energies, Scot has been developing small and large wind projects in New England while also expanding solar PV. He supports and encourages renewable energy to help protect our environment, but also knows that in today’s economy, the penetration of renewable energy will rely on the project making financial sense for his clients. To provide adequate information, Scot has spent much time becoming educated on how to make these projects financially feasible. Scot received his undergraduate degree at Harvard University, and is currently completing his MS in Energy Engineering at UMass Lowell.
