About BrightSky

BrightSky Renewables was founded by a third generation California farmer and cattle rancher. We specialize in working with landowners to develop solar projects that leverage existing infrastructure, produce electricity at its point of demand, and give farmers and communities the opportunity to share the benefits of renewable energy.

Putting Landowners &
Business Owners First

The challenges facing farmers and business owners are daunting. Energy prices keep rising while grid reliability declines, farming costs keep climbing, labor is difficult to find, and the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) is restricting the use of groundwater, forcing farmers to push over trees, fallow fields, and make tough decisions to conserve the land.

BrightSky Renewables was founded to help fellow farmers and business owners address these growing challenges. The transition to clean energy is inevitable – in fact, it’s already well underway. BrightSky Renewables was created to help landowners take advantage of the clean energy revolution in a way that increases their profitability and protects their way of life. For farmers and landowners, it means leasing your land and harvesting the sun – a guaranteed income stream that brings in significantly more revenue per acre than farming, with no water use. And for business owners, that means drastically reducing your energy costs now and for the long-term.

Who We Are

The BrightSky Renewables team is led by Lou Myers, a third-generation farmer and cattle rancher with deep ties to Central California, and Dylan Dupre, a 25-year veteran of the solar industry who has helped countless businesses and landowners achieve energy independence, dramatically reduce their energy costs, and create a reliable alternative revenue stream.

Lou Myers


Lou is a successful entrepreneur and farmer with deep ties to California’s central valley. Over his nearly 20-year real estate career, Lou has been steadfast in delivering unmatched value to his clients, customers, and investors. As a former real estate attorney in Beverly Hills, Lou represented some of California’s largest institutions in complex real estate transactions, including structured financing, taxation, acquisitions, and dispositions. Since then, Lou has built one of central California’s leading real estate firms with over $250 million in farmland, apartment buildings, and Affordable housing spanning from Merced to Bakersfield. Notwithstanding his success, Lou is most proud of his reputation for honesty and integrity knowing those traits will ultimately define his legacy.

Lou founded BrightSky to continue his calling to deliver unparalleled value to landowners.

Dylan Dupre


Dylan, a seasoned entrepreneur with over 25 years in the industry, has excelled in originating, developing, and financing distributed energy projects across the United States. His executive expertise involves building high-performance teams and a proven track record of leading and scaling high-growth companies. Before founding BrightSky Renewables, Dylan played a key role as President and Co-Founder of WhitePine Renewables, spearheading the development of over 150 MWs of solar projects within 18 months. As CEO of CalCom Energy from 2016-2020, he earned recognition on Inc. 500’s fastest-growing privately held companies list for three consecutive years and was featured in the Business Journal’s 40 under 40 for top young entrepreneurs, successfully scaling the company to $100M in revenues during that time. Dylan is dedicated to forging mutually-beneficial business partnerships, setting an example through unwavering vision, passion, and commitment to a clean energy future.
