Williams founded Standard Solar Inc. in 2005 and served as its chairman and CEO until 2008. The Company quickly became one of the Mid-Atlantic's fastest growing firms. Based in Rockville, Maryland, Standard Solar originally focused on solar home systems, installing over 1000 rooftop arrays in the Washington D.C. region. The Company later transitioned to commercial solarelectric installations exclusively, and presently operates in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and New Mexico, as it continues to expand its markets.
Standard Solar has installed solar power systems atop the U.S. Dept. of Energy's Forrestal Building on the Mall in Washington, DC., the National Archives, the National Institutes of Health, American University, Catholic University, University of Delaware, Perdue farms, and dozens of Maryland schools, while providing solar power to numerous water treatment plants, industrial buildings, government facilities, parking lots, retail stores, and the Ravens' stadium in Baltimore.
Williams retired from the Company in 2008. With partner, Tom Tatum, he formed Ute Peak Solar to develop utility-scale solar projects for rural electric cooperatives in New Mexico.
