Shadzi, Founder and President
Bahram has a master of science degree in chemical
engineering and material science from the University of
Minnesota. His M.S. degree thesis dealt with the handling
and treatment of radioactive waste from nuclear power
plants. He spent many years as a process development engineer
in computer disk manufacturing, semiconductors and manufacturing
of flat panel display. During his engineering career,
he was involved in the development of systems to treat
and eliminate hazardous waste from these industries. He
was also a champion of other environmental causes, advocating
ways to lower green house gases and to help eliminate
ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), just to name
a few. He is the author of four U.S. patents.
Over 15 years ago, Bahram
decided to enter the field of home remodeling. As part
of the new endeavor, he naturally gravitated toward various
aspects of green building and reducing energy consumption
by applying green alternatives in place of conventional
methods of building. He obtained his general contracting
license from the State of California along with a C-10
electrical license, as well as a C-46 solar license. It
goes without saying he is a passionate advocate and champion
for alternative sources of energy, especially renewable
Solar power is inexhaustible
and produces reliable electricity for homes and businesses
with zero emission, protecting our environment. During
the past several years, Bahram has been designing and
installing photovoltaic (PV) solar systems and enjoying
every minute of it. He has dedicated the rest of his life
to the cause of solar energy. "I am truly satisfied,"
he noted, "creating sustainable and renewable energy
solutions that meet the expressed needs of our Cosmic
Solar customers. This is the first time in my long career
that I feel I have true job satisfaction!"
Bahram and Judith currently
live on a seven acre solar powered organic orchard. Their
average electric monthly bill has been "close to
zero" ever since they installed their solar electric
PV system 2005.
