KeyState Renewables, LLC announces the addition of Steve Hibbard as Director of Finance.

As the lead underwriter and negotiator on these investments, Hibbard managed project and real estate due diligence, including downside modeling to ensure satisfactory returns. In his role as Director of Finance with KeyState Renewables, he will lead developer relationship outreach and management, all aspects of underwriting and deal negotiation, and solar project asset management.
