The solar industry has a huge job of educating and cultivating solar into mainstream consciousness. Effectively utilizing social media platforms is key to this mission. Thank you Tor for articulating these important points so well. No doubt that if we work together as a team on Twitter and beyond we can and will collectively achieve greatness for ourselves and our planet!
Tor - your words of wisdom are much appreciated as well as your creative leadership in the virtual and actual solar community. I believe I can safely say, the entire "Twitter Solar Tribe" thanks you for all you do!
Jeff - you have been a personal inspiration as I have grown my own solar business while following your creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. You are a "solar staple" with clear presence at every solar event, always representing the industry with professionalism and pride. Thank you for your leadership and advancing solar into mainstream consciousness. Wishing you and your family much luck and happiness!
Thanks Jennifer for this article. Many components can add or detract from SHW success; proper training & licensing, technology, state incentives, good marketing & public awareness as well as the price of gas to name a few.
I invite you all to participate in an upcoming #SolarChat (June 13th at 2pm EST on Twitter) where we plan on coming together and tackling these issues in a brainstorming hour long debate.
Please join us! Here's the invite to RSVP: http://solarchat-061312-eorg.eventbrite.com/
Thank you Tildy Bayer. This is "big question" and one that we tackled as well during the last Twitter #SolarChat hosted by SEIA: http://www.ecooutfitters.net/blog/2012/02/solarchat-recap-22212-what-to-expect-from-solar-in-2012/
A large crowd of very vocal, enthusiastic solar advocates from across the solar spectrum addressed issues such as; what are the biggest challenges in 2012, what is the critical policy for 2012, best methods of banning together to advance solar on a state level and much more. The discussion was overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Big challenges lie ahead but the opportunities are even larger!
