MAGE SOLAR, part of the globally operating MAGE GROUP, announced that CEO and President of MAGE SOLAR USA Joe Thomas was honored with the 2011 Georgia Solar Advocate Award. At the ceremony in Atlanta Thomas was praised as “without doubt one of the most active, most visible, high level executives active for the solar cause in the Peach State.”
All year long, the Chief Executive of the Dublin, Georgia, based PV-manufacturer and complete system provider has traveled vigorously to speak at civic forums and engage in dialogues with opinion leaders, communities, and legislators from all over the state. At multiple occasions, Thomas has also hosted open roundtables and solar seminars for the general public at the MAGE SOLAR ACADEMY, an internationally renowned training arena for the PV-industry.
“I consider it a great pleasure and privilege to accept this award,” Thomas. “My home state has so much economic potential in store when it comes to energy from the sun, so sharing knowledge about the tremendous opportunities is truly a passion of mine. But I also would like to thank the Georgia Solar Energy Association for their untiring and immensely helpful support in preparing Georgia to become a leader in clean energy.”
