Kylie Esselstrom

Commercial & Residential Sales Team Lead
Growing up in the lush forests of the Olympic Peninsula gave Kylie an appreciation for the natural world at a young age. The love of wilderness and being outside led her to pursue a degree in Geology and work for the Forest Service after graduating from university. This career path took her all across Montana, Idaho, and Oregon where she conducted geomorphic habitat surveys for salmon and Bull trout and supervised remote field stations.

Her time working for the Forest Service made her realize that conservation alone cannot save the species and ecosystems she had come to love. This made her obsessed with renewable energies and decarbonizing the grid. Kylie loves learning about policy, Greentech, and businesses utilizing creative solutions to fight climate change. She is grateful for the opportunity to work with the Montana solar community and to collaborate with clients to reach their energy goals.

During her off time, Kylie enjoys baking or exploring the mountains of Montana through the mediums of skiing, climbing, and biking.
