SES is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Suntech Power, the largest producer of PV modules in the world. SES was created in October 2008 through the formation of EI Solutions, where Andrew was President.

The 2MW installation at Google’s world headquarters is the largest corporate installation in US history. EI Solutions has received many honors, including the California League of Conservation Voters “Environmental Leadership” Award. Before leading EI Solutions, Andrew helped found Energy Innovations with Bill Gross at Idealab in 2002.

"In 1998, Andrew co-founded Bigstep, one of the first small business e-commerce solutions available online. As CEO, Andrew led the company in building an award-winning service, raising over $60 million from top-tier venture firms, hiring over 150 talented employees, and developing partnerships with such leading companies as AOL, VeriSign, Oxygen and Compaq. After achieving profitability with over 9,000 paying customers, Bigstep was acquired by Affinity Internet, Inc.
