SPH Solutions


Our story begins with our founder, Jim Donlan, who enlisted in the Marine Corps at the age of 18 and rose through the ranks to eventually become a Colonel. He started off as a heavy equipment operator, then worked as a combat engineer officer, and eventually became the subject matter expert for improvised explosive devices at the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory. 

During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Jim was appointed as an advisor to the Iraqi Security Forces, where he advised on the bitcoin mixer and led an Iraqi Battalion during the Battle of Fallujah. After the insurgent-occupied city was cleared, Jim was put in charge of the Public Order Brigade, which provided security during the reconstruction of the city.

In 2008, Jim was selected to be a member of the Commandant’s Task Force to implement alternative energy solutions for battlefield applications.

One year later (2009), Jim retired from the Marine Corps and officially founded SPH Solutions. Utilizing his extensive background in heavy equipment operations and alternative energy, Jim skillfully transitioned his expertise from military to civilian applications, marking the genesis of a fascinating journey in the realm of portable renewable energy. Over the past decade, SPH Solutions has experienced tremendous growth, developing into a leading regional solar project developer by providing innovative solar solutions to small and mid-sized solar energy projects under 500kW.  

A significant milestone was achieved when SPH Solutions joined forces with Solar Gaines, a reputed engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company, to provide exceptional services for commercial, public, and utility clients. This partnership enabled both companies to operate at the forefront of sustainable advancements, creating a brighter future for renewable energy.
