Creative maverick. Hightech pioneer. Eco-entrepreneur.

Kirk A. Maust

   Chief Operating Officer, Director of Engineering

Kirk Maust represents the new breed of entrepreneurial executive;
his defining characteristics encompass 28-years of “real world” solar
and renewable engineering experience, Internet technology and digital communication skills, as well as having the spirit and aspirations of an e-commerce visionary.

In 1981, Maust earned one of the nation’s first degrees in solar
and renewable technology. He graduated from Pennsylvania State
University’s Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Department,
recognized as having the largest and most prestigious engineering
degree program in North America. Moving to Florida, Maust managed
and later acquired the solar division of an air conditioning firm.

In 1986, Maust joined with Dale Gulden to initiate the start-up of
Solar Direct. The combination of Maust’s engineering and computer
science experience, together with Gulden’s solid history of marketing
and sales in the solar industry created an effective and innovative

As their new company moved into a broader energy market,
Maust engineered inventive solutions for applications in the emerging
geothermal, indoor air quality, and energy management fields.

In 1995, Maust constructed and launched the company’s first website.
Heralded as one of the earliest and most comprehensive renewable
energy online destinations, was a pioneering effort
that set the stage for intensified growth.

Building on the success of offering alternative energy information
to consumers via the Internet, Maust developed Solar Direct’s first
electronic shopping cart – the Energy SuperMarket. This investment
in an e-commerce platform dramatically increased revenues, and
distribution expanded first nationally, and then globally.

Maust’s responsibilities include working closely with the engineering,
pre-sales engineering, and information technologies personnel, to
ensure quality service to Solar Direct’s customers. He also provides
operational oversight, while maintaining a personal presence
throughout Solar Direct’s rapidly expanding organization.

Maust provides engineering and troubleshooting consultations for
major clients requiring solutions to complex and challenging design
obstacles. He has earned the coveted reputation of conceptualizing,
designing, engineering, and managing the execution of large,
complicated, and problematic projects.

Maust holds a Florida State Certified Solar License, and is a current
member and former Vice-President of the Gulf Coast Chapter of the
Florida Solar Energy Industry Association.
