Meet the Owners: Janet & Cliff and Bob & Terri
Premier Solar Northwest’s success was built on superior customer service, quality installations and integrity. After looking to do business together for some time, the solar industry and the alignment of Premier’s values are what inspired Bob Rathbone and Cliff Barry to purchase Premier Solar NW from the founder Dan Tracy.
Bob and his wife Terri, along with Cliff and his wife Janet met as newlyweds forty years ago, and have been good friends ever since. Bob and Terri’s four children, along with Cliff and Janet’s two children grew up playing together. Today, the foursome enjoys golfing, traveling and the benefit of being grandparents.
Collectively, with over 75 years of successful business experience between them, they believe they can continue the traditions that made Premier Solar successful. Together, they are looking forward to continuing the Company’s growth and the growth of solar in the Pacific NW.
They are excited to be a part of the growing renewable energy industry and helping their customers achieve their financial, energy and sustainability goals. Their priority is to ensure that the customers experience is exceptional, and to deliver the right system for their customer’s needs.
