Former state energy chief Ted Peck gets new job


Ted Peck, the former energy administrator for the state of Hawaii, has taken a job in Honolulu as the local sales manager for a Wisconsin-based energy company.

Peck will be in charge of “market analysis, sales leadership and partner relationship management” for ZBB Energy Corp., a publicly traded company based in Milwaukee.

Peck was the state’s energy administrator from December 2007 through January 2011. Peck quit his state job to become president of Kuokoa, a startup company that had proposed acquiring HEI Industries Inc., the parent of HECO. Kuokoa dropped its bid to take over HEI in early 2013.

Peck left Kuokoa in December 2012 to become the general manager of the South Pacific region for Johnson Controls.

ZBB Energy Corp. “designs, develops, and manufactures advanced energy storage, power electronic systems, and engineered custom and semi-custom products targeted at the growing global need for distributed renewable energy, energy efficiency, power quality, and grid modernization,” according to a news release from the company.
