Simpleray President Tyler Anderson Named “40 Under 40” Recipient

Founder Recognized by Midwest Energy News for Bringing Solar to Rural Communities

On September 6th, Midwest Energy News named Simpleray’s Tyler Anderson as the recipient of their prestigious 40 Under 40 award. Each year, Midwest Energy News recognizes Midwest-based leaders and innovators from all sectors for their work in America’s transition to a clean energy economy. 

Tyler’s selection for the award was based on his pioneering efforts to bring solar to underserved markets, including farmers and rural businesses. 

“We’re both excited and very proud to recognize the 2019 40 Under 40 recipients,” said Martina Holmes, Partnership Coordinator at Midwest Energy News. “Though a tough choice from over 200 nominations, we have selected an amazing cohort and we're happy to celebrate the work they’re doing throughout the Midwest.”

Tyler Anderson founded Simpleray, a solar development and EPC firm based in Fairfield, Iowa. Simpleray got its start in Iowa under the name Iowa Wind and Solar and quickly grew to one of the largest solar installers in the state. From there, the firm expanded its presence throughout the Midwest. 

“I'm honored to be included on this list with all my fellow recipients,” says Tyler Anderson, President at Simpleray. “My success is due to the hard work and accomplishments of our team at Simpleray and I could not have achieved this on my own.” 

The award will be presented to Tyler and the other recipients at the Midwest Energy News 40 Under 40 Honorees Reception on September 23rd in Chicago, Illinois.
