Native Seeds for Texas Solar Projects? A proposal for solar by East Texas Native Seeds, presented by Tyler Wayland
Ryan started his solar career building and installing dual-axis trackers in Vermont and New Hampshire. In 2018 he moved to Boston and joined Nexamp as O&M Manager, responsible for the day-to-day operations of more than 200 solar sites, including several thousand acres worth of ground-mounted arrays. After several years of overseeing vegetation management, Ryan got in touch with ASGA and together they set up a pilot grazing program on two sites in NY. Since then, Nexamp has expanded their grazing program to nearly 500 acres across multiple states and continues to invest in co-location efforts across the growing fleet.
