We are excited to announce that one of our favorite projects from the past year, Gold Crust Baking, has been nominated for Solar Builder Magazine's 2014 Project of the Year Awards in the rooftop category!

I love this story. And not just because she knocked her first marathon out of the park and has a crazy bright future ahead of her.

The real great part of this story is how she spent a year traveling the world to learn about different running cultures, and how it recharged her mentally, physically, and spiritually. 

The lesson I took away is that we should always seek to try something new and possibly bite off more than we can chew. You learn and grow more that way.

I love these kinds of posts because they make me think about what kind of leader I am (a mix of builder, processor, and communicator), and what kinds of leaders my bosses and coworkers are (and aren't).

My latest post on +SolarDock's blog. Green Mountain Power is a really impressive company and I hope more utilities, large and small look to them as a model of how utilities can cooperate with renewables rather than fight and undermine them.
Today's #FeatureFriday project is Green Mountain Power's Energy Innovation Center, installed by +suncommon earlier this year.

Love this article and the Tech Writing Handbook that is linked at the end. 

My favorite bit: "Writing is a tricky balancing act, juggling dozens of nebulous constraints. Writers have to think about audience, and about style, and about tone — factors that are hard to anchor down. In business, writing is inextricably tied to company identity: writers have to think about what a company stands for, where it's going, and how that company should be presented to the public. Difficult considerations."

Can't agree more.

My latest post on +SolarDock's blog. Content adapted from a co-worker's report on the PV Taskforce evaluation criteria. 
Here's our 2nd post about PV Taskforce's racking criteria. Read the full blog post to learn how SolarDock was specifically designed to protect the roof's waterproofing integrity: http://solardock.tumblr.com/post/55722546279/centerpvtaskforce-systemintegration

I was so excited about getting this opportunity to see Solar Impulse land. It was worth the 4+ hours of driving to/from NYC!
Our Marketing Director, +Kate Bayard got to see Solar Impulse land on Saturday night. Here's her write up about the experience and some of the photos she took:

My latest post and graphic for +SolarDock's blog. This is based on a far more technical and SolarDock specific installation tip sheet written by one of my coworkers.  I summarized and generalized it so it is applicable to all  #solar  installs, regardless of what products are being used.
#Solar  Installation Tip: Develop a Drop Plan before lifting the system components to the roof will make your team more efficient on lift day.

Visit our blog for some things to consider when creating your Drop Plans: http://solardock.tumblr.com/post/53929049686/installtip-develop-drop-plan
