Meet Yusef Shelton
Byers Solar Lead Installer
Yusef came to Byers Solar in 2016 with a solid background in solar. Having installed solar and worked a wide range of solar projects and types of systems over a period of six years, Yusef was delighted to end his days of commuting and be working closer to his roots and home in Nevada County.
Yusef attended Sierra College and is a SunPower trained solar installer. His attention to detail and ability to see the scope of work needed and manage a team made him a natural choice for Solar Lead Installer.
A dedicated husband and father, Yusef enjoys spending time watching his 4-year old son and 2-year old daughter grow. He still likes to play drums and guitar with friends, something he took up while in high school, but mainly, if he is not working or with his family, he is off-roading on his dual-sport Kawasaki, his preferred vehicle for getting to Byers Solar from his home near Smartsville. Asked about his favorite places to ride, he mentions a great route from Colfax to Weimar. Yusef began riding with his father when he was about 10.
Looking ahead, Yusef sees a nice progression at Byers Solar. “Our team works well together and really enjoys the experience of true teamwork. We have become a very tight-knit crew — we are good friends. With Byers Solar now a commercial SunPower Elite Dealer, we will be able to go even further. This is only good for everyone — we can now help business clients save even more.”
