OREM, UT, July 21, 2020—EY announced that Ben Peterson, CEO of Blue Raven Solar, is a finalist in its 2020 Entrepreneur of the Year Utah Region program.

“I’m honored to be named an EY Entrepreneur of The Year Finalist and proudly share this recognition with the entire team who work tirelessly to realize our mission and live our values,” said Peterson. “Solar is the future and Blue Raven Solar knows how to do it right.”
Peterson has also made giving back a top priority.

Thanks to his leadership and entrepreneurial spirit, in addition to the environmental benefits from each solar installation, over 5,000 people now have access to clean water.
Entrepreneur of the Year recognizes leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
