Join @EcoOutfitters for #SolarChat on Twitter on February 8th from 2:00 - 3:00  p.m. ET. We will be dicussing Ways to Grow Your Solar Business. After all, a large portion of your solar company's success is hiring and motivating the right team of professional and passionate people to drive sales and operations. How do we harness our passion and convert it into an infectious corporate culture?

Moderater Raina Brett Russo, president and co-founder of EcoOutfitters.net will be joined by special guest panelist Glenna Wiseman, the VP of marketing for HelioPower (@HelioPowerCo), Aaron Fowles, corporate communications manager for SANYO North America (a division of Panasonic) (@), and Chris J. Hillman (@ChrisJHillman), sales manager of the Renewable Energy Department of Allied Business Schools, a  for-profit, accredited school located in Orange County Calif.

At HelioPower, Glenna has initiated the company’s first affiliate marketing programs. These programs use a team approach to focus the efforts of the client, solar panel and other industry product suppliers, state and local government and green building stakeholders to promote the sustainable aspects of the client’s solar initiative.

Aaron manages the internal and external communications of the North America region for the SANYO Group by developing and executing communications strategies externally to promote brand image and awareness. In his role with the Solar Division, he has been an advocate for solar and has worked on everything from the start-up of the SANYO Solar Manufacturing plant in Oregon to educational solar programs around the country. Aaron is fluent in Japanese.

In addition to his role at Allied Business Schools, Chris is also a life coach, a member of the University of Arizona Alumni Board in Orange County, and a freelance writer. He authors articles about leadership, sales training, and how to create a dynamic corporate culture that fuels a powerful, sustainable company, a profitable business, and a rewarding place to work. Chris specializes in helping others get into new careers in renewable energy, determining what their life gifts are, and finding new rewarding careers for the future. 

#SolarChat provides an opportunity to connect homeowners and qualified installation professionals, to demonstrate the affordability and environmental impact of all types of solar solutions, and to educate consumers on this emerging field. "We believe in the power of solar to change the world," says Russo. "We hope #SolarChat will further advance EcoOutfitters' goal of making solar a reality for every American home and business."

For those new to Twitter, a hashtag (#) is an easy way to find and follow people who are tweeting about a certain topic. #SolarChat has a simple mission: Curious consumers, energy experts, and installation professionals can tune into Twitter at the designated chat time to share advice and resources, weigh in on discussion topics, pose questions or concerns, and work together to advance solar awareness.

#SolarChat is held on the secod and fourth Wednesday of every month from 2-3 p.m. ET.
