Emily S. Erickson
Emily Erickson has worked diligently on Maui to support the growing efforts of the renewable energy movement, with a specific expertise in the solar industry. Before joining Hawaii Energy Strategists as the Renewable Energy Director, she was Director of Operations for Maui Solar Project. Previous to that she served as Director of Marketing at the University of Hawaii Maui College, where she was made keenly aware of the challenges our community faces in being a small island chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Also an avid filmmaker, she moved to Maui in 2007 and worked as the Director of Productions at Akaku. She has also held many interesting positions over her career including working as an Assistant Director on film and television shows, and a performer for Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
Mrs. Erickson is a member of the prestigious Ka Ipu Kukui Leadership program, Maui Young Business Round Table, Maui Polo Club, and serves on the Board of the Directors for The Maui Farm, a non-profit organization providing life services to families in transition. Originally from Montevallo, Alabama, she was raised on an expansive 300-acre Christmas tree farm, which she hopes will one day soon become one of the first solar farms in central Alabama. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a double major from Colorado State University in Journalism and Equine Science.
Mrs. Erickson lives with her husband and dog Pepper in beautiful upcountry Maui where she enjoys horseback riding, golf, and kayaking. Emily is your first point of contact at HES, contact her to learn more about how HES can help your project reach success.
