“I had the pleasure of working with Samuel and his team at TECSI Solar during the process of developing the QBOX.  As this product was outside of my wheelhouse, I clearly needed professional help.  I didn’t know what I didn’t know.  I brought Samuel some really rough prototypes, drawings, and descriptions of the problem, and an idea of a target solution.  Samuel simply grasped the vision and ran with it.  Samuel was instrumental in material selection and vendor selection, while also keeping it simple.  Most impressive was Samuel’s ability to navigate the UL certification process.  His exacting attention to detail on product specs enabled us to pretest – via physical testing and through computer modeling – most of the 10 UL tests that we were embarking on, and have the confidence that we would pass every one, which we did. He also had foresight to know when and who to call at UL to make sure that things kept moving forward.  I have no reservation recommending Samuel and TECSI Solar to anyone embarking on an engineering problem to be solved regardless of the budget or timeline, nobody will do better…”Stuart Wentworth, CEO Imagineering Plus Plus (Co-Founder and CTO Quick Mount PV)

“I had the pleasure of working with TECSI on the development of Origami Solar’s innovative PV module frame technology. The TECSI team brought skill, creativity and valuable industry experience to help us solve and advance several important elements of the design through FEA, prototyping, and pre-production efforts. I cannot say enough about the skills, attitude and productivity of the TECSI team in supporting our patent filings, prototyping, testing, tooling, and first articles. TECSI became a valuable part of our team, providing a range of services as we went to market.” Eric Hafter, CEO at Origami Solar

“Samuel and his firm TECSI Solar have been fantastic to work with. They helped us finalize a new product listing with UL and then led introduction of the product to various permitting authorities. Their depth of knowledge, expertise, and sense of urgency in pushing through the complex challenges of the work was/is fantastic. Samuel and TECSI are a pleasure to work with.” – Todd Georgopapadakos, Founder and Board Member of SafeConnect Solar

“I had the distinct pleasure of working with Samuel and his team when we needed an engineering firm to assist in developing a method for mounting our unique module technology to a standing seam roof.  Prior to our first meeting, we provided all our requirements and internal design concepts showing how we were planning the new mounting strategy.  Samuel took the time to evaluate every aspect of the information provided and then laid out a very clear, data driven set of reasons that showed we were on the wrong track and wasting resources a small startup does not have; time and money!  Samuel responded with several novel and detailed designed concepts and provided finite element analysis as proof of their likelihood to successfully meet our product requirements.  In 30 minutes, we knew we made the right choice to retain Samuel.  The TECSI team created a turnkey solution providing every required aspect of product development and launch including: concept generation, strength analysis, fit and function analysis, prototypes, product validation testing, design drawings, vendor selection, first article inspections, SOP for module assembly, and even certification.  Applying my 20 years of experience, I guessed the timeframe for the project to be nine months.  The TECSI team completed the project from start to production ready in only three months and provided Sunflare their best product.  Every project we retained his talents yielded similar results.  The TECSI team works with the highest integrity and is committed to always making the required engineering decisions based upon his customer’s best interests.  If you are looking for an engineering firm to assist in the design and manufacturing of your products, my highest recommendation would be to retain TECSI Solar Inc.” – Bradford Oliver, COO at Sunflare

“Samuel is one of the most creative people I have worked with and always brings new ideas and approaches to solving a problem. However, what I find unique, is that he compliments that creativity with a strong drive and follow through to bring his ideas all the way through concept, development and into production. Along the way he uses his strong analytical abilities and a data driven approach to ensure that in the end we have created an optimized solution…” James Cartwright, Director of Module Products at SunEdison

“Samuel is a solar rockstar who understands the space and what products are needed to take it to the next level. He is always asking why and digging into an issue until it is fully understood.  He is a true engineer who can get into the weeds and a leader who understands the big picture.” Brian Wildes, CTO Ecolibrium

“Samuel and the team at TECSI have a wealth of knowledge and have proven to be very valuable in our development and validation. The team at TECSI has allowed us to make significant advances in our business by working side by side with them.”Rusty Stapp, VP of Sales and Product Management at Origami Solar

 “Samuel is a strong leader with clear thinking, passion and a tenacious focus on the goal. He provided solutions for my group with clear work scope, risks, and time frame. Samuel’s ability to think strategically along with professional engineering knowledge have provided extremely valuable perspectives on projects.” Karen Dzienkowski, Sr. Director Business Development at SunEdison

“He is technically strong and able to effectively supervise complex engineering development while simultaneously filling a high-level individual contributor role. He quickly identifies problems, be they technical or organizational, and is tenacious and effective at driving to a solution. Samuel’s communication is extremely clear and straightforward – he creates a team environment that is very positive and productive. Samuel is also a lot of fun to work with.” – Kevin Fine, Engineering Manager, Tesla Energy

Not very often have I had the chance to work with someone who possesses the high level of ability and breadth of knowledge necessary to interface with as wide a variety of technical specialties and effectively manage them as Samuel. Ronald Migdal, Principal Engineer RJMSE

“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Samuel over the last 6 years. Samuel is an extremely competent and innovative engineer. He is also a natural leader and people manager. His teams are motivated, innovative and focused on not just a product’s design but also on its application. Samuel understands that innovation isn’t enough – he ensures that there is a high degree of cross functional communication so that the entire organization easily understands why he and his team are pitching a solution and what the benefit of that solution is. In other words, he knows who to influence and how to influence. In my case, Samuel goes out of his way to ensure that operations is completely ready to implement his designs. From vendor selection to contract negotiation to ensuring that all the pieces come together in a logical manner – he will do whatever it takes and then some. Samuel is an excellent Director of Engineering and could easily fill a VP of Engineering position at the right company. I highly recommend him.”Uwe Paul Kerkhoff, Director of Supply Chain at SunEdison
