Daniel Sullivan Announced as Semifinalist for Ernst & Young San Diego Entrepreneur of the Year
Daniel Sullivan, Cleantech San Diego board member and president and founder of San Diego-based Sullivan Solar Power, has been announced as a semifinalist for the prestigious Ernst & Young San Diego Entrepreneur of the Year award.
The Entrepreneur of the Year award recognizes those who not only create and build market-leading businesses, but also help take the standard of excellence to new heights, transform the face of the industry, create jobs, and contribute to the vibrancy of communities. Sullivan Solar Power is the only solar power installation company included on the list.
“The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year is the world’s most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs, making this nomination my greatest honor to date,” said Daniel Sullivan.
Daniel has been a key driving force for the growth of the solar industry in Southern California for the last 12 years, and his company is a significant contributor to San Diego’s ranking as the nation’s second best solar market (total solar installed). Additionally, San Diego is slated to be the largest city in the nation to be 100 percent solar powered by 2035. Daniel grew Sullivan Solar Power from a one-man shop in his garage to one of the largest solar firms in the U.S., which has now been ranked one of the fastest growing firms locally and nationwide by Inc. and San Diego Magazine for six consecutive years.
Daniel has also been named Most Admired CEO multiple times by the San Diego Business Journal. As a pioneer in the local residential solar industry, he is driven by a mission to change how the world generates energy and has a unique and realistic perspective of a better future through solar power.
