Chris Prelitz
Chris Prelitz is the son of an ocean and aerospace engineer father and a mother of Native American descent who grew up on a rural farm. Raised in the midst of these two extreme views of life provided Chris with an appreciation for both high-tech and simple indigenous principles that have stood the test of time yet have been mostly forgotten. Chris is a pioneer of the green movement, heading a successful design-build firm with projects ranging from off-grid solar ranches to the first solar-powered restaurant and solar auto dealership in the U.S. He has served on environmental advisory boards at city, state, and national levels. Chris now touches audiences globally with his uplifting green message, appearing regularly in the print and broadcast media, including the premier episode of the Discovery Channel’s Greenovate show.
