Born and raised in Brenham, Texas, Kenny Grigar is a son of oil both figuratively and literally. He grew up in the heart of Texas oil country and his father retired after working 25 years at Schlumberger Oil. Rather than insulate him from the importance of renewable energy, his father’s involvement in the oil industry provided the experience that helped him realize the importance of alternative energies and the inherent insecurity on our reliance on a limited and often scarce fuel source. Together, they took this understanding and put it to practice in 1978 when the father and son team installed one of the first solar thermal hot water heaters in the state of Texas (Kenny was just 15 years old). Still operational on the home he grew up in, this thermal hot water heater was Kenny’s first experience with the potential of solar energy, one that would come to define his life.
