Risource Energy is looking toward a bright future with new director John Yeh at the helm. Yeh will be leading the company with Darren Furumoto, president, to build new business in both the residential and commercial sectors in the coming years.

Yeh was previously with another Hawaii-based solar company, heading the commercial solar division, and was responsible for medium to large solar buildouts including national accounts. “We are pleased John has joined our team at Risource Energy,” said Furumoto. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and relationships for us to expand our growth in the commercial side of solar.”


“My goal in coming to Risource Energy is to let companies know that we are a viable and competitive option for their commercial solar projects. I am also excited to continue growing our residential side of our company and to ensure our high level of customer service is expanded as well,” said Yeh. “We are looking for new additions to our team in both residential and commercial sales for our company. Solar is about energy and we are eager to find the right type of energetic people to charge our growth.”

Risource Energy, like other solar companies, has had its share of setbacks because of solar energy grid saturation. Homeowners are concerned about legislation and how it will affect their connectivity.

“The reason why we are planning for the future is that initially we saw a decrease in contracts. However, our residential sales are picking up and we foresee it increasing. We are looking for qualified sales, customer service representatives and installers to ensure that our level of service is maintained for new customers and existing clients,” said Yeh.

“Aside from our quality panels made in Japan, our high customer service level is how Risource Energy will be distinguished from its competitors in both the residential and commercial markets,” chimed in Furumoto. “That’s how we want to run our business. That’s how we want to serve our customers.”
