The Buskowitz Group
The Buskowitz Group started as part of an endeavor to cut the electric costs in the family-owned and run hotel, Monaco Suites de Boracay. Having been educated in Germany and being familiar with the efficiency of solar power, Founder and CEO, James Buskowitz decided to go solar for his family resort.
The difficulty in finding a company that promised and delivered excellent quality and service led to the realization that there was significant potential in the Philippines’ solar energy sector. In 2012, Buskowitz founded ERA Energy Renewables Asia, an engineering, procurement, and construction company for solar panel installations and solar systems.
Shortly after, Buskowitz Finance was founded to answer the development and financial needs of clients. The Buskowitz Group was the first in the country to offer solar leases and solar loans, making it easier and faster for companies and individuals to go choose renewable energy solutions.
As the companies grew in both size and market share, the Buskowitz Group centered all endeavors on the goal of providing renewable energy solutions through solar photovoltaic installations, choosing to focus on solar panel rooftop installations and solar leases or loans.
In 2017, through its subsidiaries, Buskowitz aims to be a leader in integrated sustainable energy and sustainable solutions.
