"I know a PV Solar installer that gives a $1K kickback to any customer of his that refers a new customer to him that results in a signed install contract. That is a pretty generous kickback, but it incentivizes the heck out of his current clients. If…"

"Hi Craig, Are you looking for someone to buy out your idea, or to manufacture and market it and give you a royalty kickback as they build the brand? I might know a guy that can show you the way to the latter. If you don't mind me asking...why…"

The RCC Classroom (Radiant Control Coatings)

A group where energy professionals can learn about all the different energy saving aspects of RCCs.  I have worked with one particular RCC for 30 years.  I have amassed alot of information I can share.  Everyone knows, accepts and understands how RCCs work as a 'Cool Roof' coating.  However, that seems to be where the knowledge on these products different energy saving applications abruptly stops.  I hope to change that with this group. There are over 300 protective coatings out there and they…See More

New PV system. What is your experience with different panel manufacturers?

I am about to pull the trigger on having a 5.9kW system put on our home/office, but honestly PV systems are kind of outside of my realm of expertise (I mostly work within air sealing and insulation retrofits). I would like to hear from people in the PV word about their experience with the hardware that is out right now.From my research the SunPower brand PV panels and inverter systems seem to keep floating to the top of the quality list. I like the fact that their systems are modular and they…See More
