Allie Coleman

Allie jokes that she's been in the solar industry since she was 7, a true solar "old-timer". She grew up working in, and eventually managed Wholesale Solar which served DIY and Installers for nearly 20 years.

Now she heads up community and strategy at PV Platforms, bringing her years of experience to help make solar accessible, affordable, and simple. She believes in power independence in the form of solar + storage as a path towards solar adoption and sustainability.

Want to join the community? is currently under development, and we are working on bringing a wide range of features and resources to our community of solar professionals.

We invite you to list your business in our live installer directory now, and we'll invite you to the community platform upon launch.
