Michael Schaal is a renewable energy advocate and recent independent commercial solar consultant.
While relatively new to commercial solar, Michael has been passionate about renewable energy for many years. His initial interest led him to pursue solar energy for his own home after successfully overturning local homeowner association restrictions on solar.
In addition to promoting solar in his neighborhood (3 homes and counting!), Michael is also active regionally with Solar United Neighbors and has presented at their annual conference on overcoming Home Owners Association obstacles.
Prior to becoming active in the renewable energy industry, Michael worked for the U.S. Department of Treasury and later as a physician in pediatric cardiology. Michael graduated from Wake Forest University with a B.S. in Business and from the Ohio State University School of Medicine. Outside of work, Michael volunteers for a national climate change organization and enjoys hiking, bicycling, and spending time with his wife and two children.
