Personal Story:


Retired 40 year design in solar and natural housing. As we retired we wanted our natural house with organic gardens. We are planning solar cookouts in 2016 We want to get people comfortable around solar equipment. Our solar truck will provide a more visible awareness of solar. 


What tips do you have for someone considering or moving forward with a solar installation?


Energy conservation goes hand in hand with solar the more efficient the house the more efficient the solar . think outside the box so many things are marketed to us that are really a waste of time and energy.
