Mike Allen

Now that he’s finished setting records as a kicker for the Badger football team (2001-04), Allen oversees east coast operations for 1st Light Energy, one of the most experienced residential solar electric system companies in the nation. Even in this challenging economic climate, Allen says the solar energy industry and his company have seen tremendous growth. Allen credits his CALS professors with teaching him how to do business by their own example—to care across the board, to be passionate about what you do, and to provide individual attention to your relationships.
