Meet Our Founders

“With the market timing, our passion for doing something good, Randy’s sales and marketing experience, and my technical and construction abilities, our combining forces was a natural fit,” says Jeff Ritchey. Together, these two successful businessmen and personal friends realized that they could combine their diverse talents in business and science to address the biggest problems facing our planet: global warming and the energy crisis. Clean Solar is Randy Zechman and Jeff Ritchey’s vision. It is a vision of being the leading solar installation company in the Bay Area.
