NextEra Energy Inc., the largest U.S. wind-power operator, hired solar industry executive Andrew Beebe as vice president of distributed generation.
Beebe was previously chief commercial officer at Suntech Power Holdings Co., the world’s biggest solar-panel maker by shipments in 2011. The Wuxi, China-based company said Sept. 7 he was resigning for personal reasons.
Steven Stengel, a NextEra spokesman, confirmed in an e-mail today that Beebe has joined the Juno Beach, Florida-based company. He wouldn’t say when Beebe was hired or describe his responsibilities.
