Our longer working aspect challenge is The Pitch — through which we have now awkward discussions with photo voltaic producers and suppliers about their new expertise and concepts in order that you do not have to. We have discusses every little thing from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new house solar + storage microgrids.
We additionally put up our Project of the Year bulletins there! Interviews with this yr’s winners might be up beginning the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe as we speak to remain on prime of all this additional stuff.
