Storage Integrator FlexGen Gains New Leadership at Crucial Time

Greentech Media

The hardware and software specialist cracked the tricky Texas market and aims to expand.

FlexGen supplied large-scale grid batteries to ERCOT before the energy storage market took off there. Now, the founder has exited and the company has brought on new leaders from the solar startup world to grow business nationwide.

Kelcy Pegler took over as CEO, FlexGen announced Wednesday. Pelger previously served as executive chairman at solar software company Sofdesk, which sold to Enphase Energy earlier this year, and before that he ran NRG Home Solar after the independent power producer acquired Roof Diagnostics Solar, which he co-founded. 

"The FlexGen opportunity just became so apparent that it was the right place with the biggest opportunity to make a difference," Pegler told Greentech Media. "The market in many ways is catching up to what FlexGen was doing."
