KDC PARTNERS & MANAGEMENT


 

Hale Kamine

Partner, CEO 

Since 1983, Hal Kamine’s background in the power business coupled with a strong entrepreneurial spirit helped bridge his vision both in the independent power industry and the telecommunications industry in the United States.

As CEO and owner of Kamine Development Company, predecessor to KDC Solar, Hal developed, built, and owned seven unregulated non-utility power generation projects located in New York and New Jersey between 1985 and 2000. These projects totaled 600 megawatts and represented a capital investment of more than $800 million.

Hal pioneered the independent power business from its inception in the early 1980s until 1998. In 1998, Hal was one of two industry leaders selected by the independent power industry to negotiate a settlement with Niagara Mohawk, one of New York’s largest utilities. This settlement resulted in the sale of all of KDC's New York State power projects. At the time this sale was the largest voluntary utility/independent power producer restructuring in the United States.

Since Hal was deeply involved in the deregulation of the electric as well as the natural gas industries, he foresaw the deregulation of the telecommunications industry. With that in mind, he formed KMC Telecom in 1995 which began as a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (“CLEC”) prior to the passage of the Telecom Act of 1996. The enactment of this law opened an even greater opportunity for Hal's vision of a unique telecom company that customized services to its customers to be realized through an open and competitive marketplace. KMC Telecom eventually deployed over $2 billion in capital, had over 1,500 employees and revenues of approximately $600 million per year. KMC Telecom became one of the country's largest independent CLECs prior to its sale in 2005.

In 2007, Hal saw the same opportunity in the renewable energy area that he capitalized on in the independent power business. He enlisted many of the senior management and advisors of the original Kamine Development Company to pursue this new venture through KDC Solar.

Hal graduated summa cum laude from Lafayette College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is a Registered Professional Engineer in the State of New Jersey.
