Adam Kiehna – Solar Installation Crew Lead
Adam comes to StraightUp Solar with a degree in accounting from SIUE and 3 years accounting work at a major corporation in St. Louis. Like so many others that work for StraightUp Solar, he decided to pursue his passion instead. Adam tells us he want to play a role in “changing the way we power the country”.
Adam also grew up working on a cattle farm in Illinois and knows about being outdoors and working with his hands. He worked construction during college. He realized that doing that work for a living would make him much happier, so after taking a course on solar electricity he applied with us.
Adam says getting his new job as one of our installers allows him to “feel I am contributing to a better world” and that at the end of the day he likes” to stand back and look at the installation and know we made that.”
Adam still lives his passion for the land as well. In his spare time, he and his finance’ are experimenting with aquaponics as a more sustainable way to grow food.
