Joseph Obermann II
Joey is an electrical design engineer with a passion for new innovation. Familiar with electricity since childhood, his father was an electrical contractor and often asked little Joey to tag along to pull wires and hook up switches and receptacles. After swearing that he would not pursue a career as an electrician, he spent 18 years in the boat industry. Joey eventually found his way back to his roots as the company’s main contact for repairing electrical issues.
A vacation in Costa Rica changed his life when he decided to move there with his wife and start a yacht repair business. With electricity prices sky rocketing, he looked for ways to conserve, which led to starting a business in solar energy and designing LED lighting. Two years and two children later, projects quickly grew and after installing a solar and LED lighting project in Greenville, SC, Joey and his family found a little house on a lake and moved to the Upstate. Not long afterward, Joey’s mom and dad moved around the corner — within bicycle riding distance — and Joey is able to work with his dad once again. He continues to explore new ideas and ways to enhance his work, enjoy life, and spend quality time with his family.
