This is your SolarWakeup for September 30th, 2014

Data is what makes an article interesting, especially when it is proprietary data. We all have it, but we always covet it so much and refuse to share. That sentiment, being secretive, is counterproductive to your business. You get far more for your brand and thought leadership if you open up and share your insight and data.

This is your SolarWakeup for September 29th, 2014

As we enter the final stretch before SPI, it is apparent to me and others that solar is very global and very flat. (sorry for those that aren’t Thomas Friedman fans) We are brought together by technology into a large but tight community of solar professionals but it is the similar financial product by market segment that makes us flat. Each geography has its gold rush, most of the time focused on a segment like utility scale or residential. In the US those gold rushes have turned into markets, sustainable ones. What is left in the US? Small and medium commercial rooftops, that is where the next gold rush will be, who will be there first?
