Co-founder and CEO, MYSOLARBID LTD
Israel Faleye is a clean energy analyst and consultant with about 4 years of experience in the solar industry across different roles and organisations, including P7 Development Ltd., UK, Renewable Energy Access Network (also referred to as the Renewable Energy Association of Nigeria, “REAN”), DKL Systems and Pirano Energy.
Israel recently co-founded MySolarBid Ltd. – Nigeria’s premier online solar comparison shop. MySolarBid helps users access pre-verified solar installers and multiple financing options to provide sustainable and alternative power solutions for their businesses and residents.
Israel started in the energy sector as an undergraduate intern in 2013 at Nigeria’s highest-emitting power plant, Egbin thermal station. After learning about carbon emission and climate change, Israel switched to renewable energy (“RE”). His first engagement in the RE industry was as a project strategist for the $200m Social Housing, Energy and Economy Project (“SHEEP”) by P7 Development Ltd. UK, at Ede, Nigeria in 2016. Afterward, he worked with REAN as the association’s pioneer staff and consulted for various RE firms in off-grid energy data collection and analysis.
He finished with a 2:1 in Physics with Electronics from Osun state university and has a Masters degree in Energy Economics from the Center for Petroleum, Energy Economics and Law (“CPEEL”), University of Ibadan, Nigeria.
Israel’s career choice is summed up in his belief that “the need for energy is what brings us together, but only clean energy will keep us together.”
