Many solar installers started out as general contractors, roofers or electricians. Not Bill Anderson, the president of Milestone Solar. Before catching the solar bug, Bill worked as a Project Manager for Cisco Systems' Packet Telephony Division, where he managed all aspects of the major integration of Cisco's technologies into the Comcast Cable network to create the 'Comcast Digital Voice' offering. Previous to his nine years at Cisco, Bill served the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) for over two decades as a program leader for a wide variety of complex technical projects that support FEMA's disaster response mission.
It's not surprising Bill loves solar energy. Photovoltaics are just a really cool technology. His electrical engineering degree illustrates the point, you can't spell geek without double E.
