Meet the Ideal Energy Team
Chad Carver, Founder & Owner
I founded Ideal Energy in 2007 after spending 12 years in the mortgage and finance industry. The focus of Ideal Energy since we started has always been on finding ways to save companies money in regards to their lighting and improving lighting quality for employees and customers alike. It’s a great feeling being able to really help a company’s bottom line and help them become better stewards of the environment by switching to LED’s. It’s been a great first ten years and I am sure with the upcoming advances in lighting we are in store for even bigger things to come.
Mitch Names, Energy Advisor
I grew up in New York Mills, a small town in central Minnesota and later attended Minnesota State CTC. After school, I worked in the construction industry for several years, started my own business, and later sold my business to work as Director of Operations for Madsen Specialties. I also worked in outside sales for Dakota Millwork in Tea, SD and Bayer Built Woodworks in the commercial sales department. I have been an Energy Adviser with Ideal Energy since 2015, using my experience in business ownership, construction, and commercial sales to find the best solutions for my customers. I currently serve on boards Habitat for Humanity and Glenwood Lutheran Church. I enjoy traveling with my wife Nicole and our two daughters Grace and Gretta. I also enjoy hunting, fishing and golfing.
Bob Magnuson, Energy Advisor
I am a lifelong Minnesota resident. I have been in several sales positions spanning 30 years, ranging from Account Manager to VP of sales. I am an avid golfer and had the privilege of attending the Masters in 2001. I currently live in White Bear Lake with my wife Pamela, who is a second grade school teacher, along with our 3 dogs and a cat. As an Energy Advisor for Ideal Energy, I enjoy helping businesses to make their buildings more energy-efficient and lower costs related to lighting.
Dan Storlien, Account Specialist
I grew up in Marshall, MN and completed college in 1994 at USF in Tampa Florida with a degree in Finance. I am a happy father of 2 grown daughters and one son getting ready to head off to college. I also am a proud Grandfather of a 6 year old granddaughter and another on the way! I owned and operated a large full service mortgage company for many years and assisted in helping homeowners across the country reduce their mortgage payments. I also helped first time homeowners achieve the American Dream of homeownership to many needed renters throughout the Southeast United States. I am now enjoying this opportunity to work Ideal energy and happily saving companies $1,000’s on their lighting bills by converting to LED.
