Adi Ibrahimbegovic - Lead PV Installer/Managing Partner
Adi Ibrahimbegovic is a Lead PV Installer and technical consultant. Together with his lovely wife Carey, he is a
part owner and managing partner of Greenbelt Solar.
Since he was a young kid growing up in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Adi was interested in "how stuff works?" - the
result of that curiosity at 12 years of age was a 300$ total loss of his cousin's Commodore 64 computer in 1983 because he wanted to see "what exactly was in it?" and dismantled it to the component level.
Although he had a R&D "trial run" with a cheap electronic calculator dissassembled before it, he wasn't able to save the Commodore 64 (of course, the calculator was fine and worked like a Swiss watch for many years after it was taken apart to the last screw and put together).
A few years later in 1985, after he dismantled and reassembled his broken Panasonic VCR so he can watch "War Games" with Matthew Broderick (hey, I fixed it!), cordless phone, Walkman and many other things, his family had to put a stop to his "experiments".
In his professional career Adi has worked for many Fortune 500 companies in USA such as Best Buy, ExxonMobil,
Lyondell Chemicals and IBM. As a computer programmer and a lead web developer, he was responsible for designing,
developing and maintaining many corporate web sites such as IBM Corp. Global Industries and others.
In 2001, following his lifelong passion of playing pinball machines, Adi opened a successful business called Texas Pinball, a company that refurbished and sold commercial arcade pinball machines. After he dismantled, cleaned, fixed and put them all back together (here we go again...), they were ready to be played and enjoyed.
Hundreds of the newly refurbished to factory specs pinball machines sold throughout USA and the world in 2000s, then his focus slowly shifted to renewable and solar energies. His favorite pinball machine of all time is 1993 Bally Twilight Zone followed very closely by 1993 Williams Star Trek The Next Generation.
Between 2006-2009, after successfuly attending many of Colorado based Solar Energy International basic, advanced and hands-on Solar Classes, he decided to pursue it full time which resulted in founding and starting Greenbelt solar in 2009 together with his wife in Austin.
Adi and Carey have a wonderful 4 year old son and together with him and a German Shepherd Dog, they live in Austin, Texas. In their free time they enjoy travelling, hiking, camping, scuba diving, playing pinball machines, watching movies and cooking and preparing delicious meals together.
