Meet John Striebel, CEO of Apollo Energy. John is one of our awesome members whose business is all about harnessing the power of the sun and helping people own their own electricity.
What is Apollo Energy?
We utilize cutting-edge equipment and state-of-the-art technology to customize solar electric systems that save people money. We empower Colorado homeowners to save money and to harness the power of the sun. If you can afford your current electric bill, you can afford to switch to solar.
Why did you want to be a Green Spaces member?
The office size and culture fits our company. We work odd hours and the access for my team is helpful. Added perks, like the location, help us appeal to potential employees and customers.
How long have you been at Green Spaces?
Since January 2016
Why is being a green business important to you?
We are a solar electric company. Green is what we do. Solar energy directly reduces carbon emissions and it increases energy independence.
What are some of the things you do to be green?
We help homeowners switch their primary electricity consumption from coal to renewable energy, and to own their own renewable energy power plant. Our environmental offset is measurable and important. Electricity is a controlled monopoly and we help to create consumer choice and empower homeowners to own their own electricity.
When you’re not working what are you doing?
My wife runs a nonprofit that resettles refugees. When I am not working I am advocating. I advocate for the environment. I advocate for opportunities. I advocate for equality.
People would be surprised if they knew…
My main area of expertise is actually social business development. I run an international NGO (a nonprofit organization that is independent from states and international governmental organizations) and have lived extensively overseas.
