Shared Solar Advisors'


Sean WillChene
Chief Executive Officer
+1 (701) 429-3698

Sean WillChene is the founder and CEO of Shared Solar Advisors USA.

Before working in community shared solar, Sean developed his sales technique by selling vacuums door-to-door to support his wife and kids.

He opened a distributorship selling vacuums and air cleaners and sold the business in 2016 to move into the solar industry.

In 2017, Sean founded Shared Solar Advisors USA. The mission of the company was simple: take what he had learned from over six years of door-to-door sales and apply it to selling something that was good for people and good for the planet.

Knowing what it was like to work 50+ hours a week barely to make ends meet, Sean set up the company with a mentoring philosophy. He wanted everyone who worked with him to make a six figure income in their first year without working over 40 hours a week so that they had the personal freedom to live without fear of debt.

Five years and 500 fulfilled megawatts later, Shared Solar Advisors boasts an awesome team of 50 sales reps who are on track to make over $80,000 this year while still having time to be with their families and pursue their passions.

Sean lives with his wife and three kids in Rockford, MN.
