“Every time a new customer purchases our product, a new team member joins our company or an investor finances our assets, Palmetto is one step closer leading the world towards a clean energy future” - Christopher Kemper, Co-founder, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Our History

We have a rich history dating back to 2009. The two founders, Amit Oza and Chris Kemper, started Palmetto in 2009 with an ambition to lead the world towards a clean energy future. The Founders core strength resides in renewable energy development, policy, and financial structuring. The founders advised the world’s largest firms – energy, utility, investment groups and sovereign wealth funds – in the creation and establishment of clean energy & environmental portfolios.

Since then, the founders built a corporate track record in more than twenty countries.  Today, instead of advising others on how to build their portfolios, we now build, own and operate our own projects – acting as principles. We believe this creates a stronger offering to our customers – residential, commercial and utility customers – seeking solar solutions to their energy issues.

Palmetto’s management team has over 100 years of collective experience in the clean energy sector. The management team brings together a unique skill set and experiences ranging from well known  organizations such as World Bank, General Electric, Moody’s, Ned Bank and Tradition Financial Services.

Palmetto’s management team consists of three seasoned individuals - Chris Kemper (Chief Executive Officer), Amit Oza, CFA (Partner), and Per Regnarsson (Chief Investment Officer). This management team, together with a strong operational team, provides the support and foundation for success to achieve Palmetto’s initiatives. Additionally, the management team has successfully managed public
offerings and private take-outs.
