SAN FRANCISCO, 12 May, 2015 – Clean Power Finance (CPF) has promoted Shawn Tabak to Chief Financial Officer. Shawn was previously the vice president of finance at CPF.
“Shawn Tabak has one of the strongest commands of renewable energy accounting, tax, and finance in the U.S. solar industry,” said Nat Kreamer, CEO of CPF. “We have worked together since 2007, when he helped me create the first residential solar power purchase agreement, and more recently at CPF where he has led structuring advisory, accounting, and finance functions.”
Shawn is a renewable energy finance veteran. Prior to joining CPF in 2012, Shawn spent more than a decade at KPMG, where he developed and led KPMG’s West Coast Transaction Advisory Services practice. At KPMG, Shawn advised renewable energy companies and investors on tax equity financing structures ranging from partnerships to structured leasing arrangements.

Within the solar industry, he has advised companies ranging from module manufacturers to integrators in the utility-scale, commercial and residential sectors.
“I’m looking forward to helping lead CPF in the next phase of its evolution,” said Shawn. “CPF has an exceptional management team, strong venture backers and a unique business model in the residential solar industry. The company is well-positioned to capitalize on the huge market opportunity.”
