Tamara Manzo, Owner, CFO, Director of Sales and Marketing
Tamara graduated Cum Laude from the State University of New York at New Paltz with a B.S. in Finance and worked in the finance industry for nearly a decade. After installing solar on her home in Happy Valley in 2014, she realized there were not very many other homes that had solar systems in her community. Tamara found this surprising considering the available incentives that paid for the majority of costs. She wanted to show support for clean renewable energy by being an advocate for solar in her community. Having a background in finance has provided Tamara with a unique perspective which has allowed her to educate people on the investment perspective of solar and energy efficiencies. Tamara has set up memberships for Prestige Power Systems at OSEIA, Solar Oregon, Happy Valley Business Alliance, and has set up at various events in her community and around the Portland Metro area.

Over the next 30 years, their home system will offset 275,113 lbs of CO2. This is equivalent to the CO2 absorbed by 183 trees, 65,344 gallons of water used to make electricity, and driving a car 295,768 miles. Austin and Rylee can often be found helping their parents set up at the Sunnyside Farmer's Market, walking their dog Layla, or playing at Happy Valley Park.
