About Us

SolarLeadFactory was founded to help accelerate the adoption rate of solar power, but there's more to the story.

For over a decade we've pondered a fundamental question: how can we help inform the average person about key issues, then get them to actually take action?

These efforts have largely been focused around the intersection of the 'consumer,' technology (especially energy usage), and our environment.

We feel that business can be a massive driver of positive change and that there is a basic obligation to make the world better from our efforts.

Who is behind SolarLeadFactory? We're glad you asked:

Clayton B. Cornell - Founder

Clayton B. Cornell

Clayton was the former VP of Online Strategy for the 'groupon of solar' One Block Off the Grid, where he focused on building the company's online presence. One Block Off the Grid was acquired by Pure Energies in 2012.

He was also a founding employee of the social business incubator Virgance, and the co-founder of GO Media, the first green blog network, which sought to influence consumer choices by raising the awareness of environmental issues (the network was acquired by Virgance in 2008).

Scott Mueller - Co-Founder, VP of Sales

Scott Mueller

As far back as 2004 Scott was a solar champion: from early student activism for solar to actually being on a roof as a solar installer. He leveraged that passion and knowledge to land a fellowship where he researched solar energy markets in Germany – back in 2007, when Germany was the biggest and fastest growing solar market in the world.

Since 2009 he’s been a solar business leader, helping to make solar more efficient and scalable in the USA. Initially this was through innovative equipment distribution models, and while he won’t take credit for it, prices did plummet during this time.

SolarLeadFactory aligns with his early passion to make solar ubiquitous and help as many people as possible go solar. Scott is deeply satisfied to see the solar market and technologies maturing. Scott loves being active in the great outdoors: skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing and surfing in particular.

Peter Gyorffy - CTO

Peter loves building and fixing things. He started programming on a Commodore 64 8-bit computer at the age of 10. Since then he has written hundreds of thousands of lines of code and he’s built a lot of great software.

Peter also loves to ski, and as a geek, he knows that if we continue to burn excessive amounts of fossil fuels the chances of going skiing in the winter will decrease. Climate change is a central reason why Peter is helping people go solar.
