About Florida Solar Design Group (from the business)
Florida Solar Design Group is a consulting and sales firm. We are authorized sales agents for Fafco Solar in Southwest Florida. We provide cutting edge solutions specific to your solar energy needs based on your existing site or project under development.
Jason and Dominick were long time colleagues at the oldest and most trusted name in solar in Southwest Florida. They teamed up to offer expert consulting, design, and sales to area residents, representing their former employer as an independent sales agency. Jason is the technical guy and Dominick is the features and benefits guy, matching solar energy products to client needs.
Title: Principal Solar Designer
Jason Szumlanski considers himself a “practical solar guy,” meaning that he loves to find ways that solar can be implemented in a sensible and cost effective way. Having lived off-grid, he has experienced the joys of energy independence, and the challenges of alternative energy sources. With new technologies and drastically lower prices, Jason believes that solar energy will be a major component of Florida’s energy mix in the future.
Formerly Vice President and General Manager at a leading Southwest Florida solar energy contractor, Jason used his business and finance background to streamline company operations and optimize processes. During that time, Jason became an authority on technical aspects of solar energy products and their application in Southwest Florida. He has overseen some of the largest and most high-profile solar energy projects in the area, including solar panel installations at the Lee County Public Safety Building and FGCU Naples Botanical Garden. He is an expert in national electric code issues related to solar energy, and is keen to the political and regulatory developments in the solar industry.
3D computer modeling with Google Sketchup was initially a hobby for Jason, but it has turned into a valuable product offering for Florida Solar Design Group. Computer modeling of existing and proposed structures provides rendering for proposed solar energy systems, permitting and HOA applications, and construction documents. By modeling in three dimensions from the start, Jason is able to efficiently produce physical and electronic project documentation with a single end-to-end solution. His models form the basis for site analyses, aesthetic reviews, and construction visualization required for the implementation of solar energy projects big and small.
He also enjoys boating, travel, computers and technology, and prefers craft beers from Colorado. Jason is married with two cats and he stays fit by tapping his foot all day at his desk.
