Justine Sanchez - Solar+Storage Program Director, Mayfield Renewables

As Solar + Storage Program Director for Mayfield Renewables, Justine spends her days developing and teaching workshops on energy storage systems, reviewing electrical plan sets for PV and solar-plus-storage projects, and acting as a project consultant and facilitator for commercial-scale solar-plus-storage systems.

Since 1993, Justine has played many technical roles in the industry, such as an NREL research assistant to a NABCEP-certified system installer, to a PV system designer and project manager. However, during the majority of those years Justine has been an educator for the solar industry both as curriculum developer and IREC Certified Master Trainer for Solar Energy International, and as a senior technical editor and author for Home Power Magazine. These roles, in particular, necessitated that she stayed continually current with the developing PV and solar-plus-storage markets. As such she has cultivated a deep understanding of the industry and has honed her skills to relay knowledge about industry best practices, along with electrical, building and fire code requirements.
