FIRE Friday: Meet Erie Development Company

Despite rapid technological advances, the Mid-West and Mid-Atlantic regions have struggled to shake the historical perception that these communities are not well suited for renewable energy production. Erie Development Company (EDC) has created fixed & mobile power generation, storage & distribution equipment, installation of equipment on underutilized real estate creating a mesh network of distributed generation assets, and deployment of comprehensive EV charging network for the regions and companies that need it. 

EDC’s CEO Colin Russ has a decade-plus working in different aspects of the power and utilities industry providing a perspective on how to bring renewable energy to the rustbelt.
