Event Details

Save the date: #SolarChat on 3/28/12 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. EST will focus on Solar PV Economics.

Moderator Raina Brett Russo, president and co-founder of EcoOutfitters.net, will be joined by guest panelist Scott Gordon, senior vice president - sales of HelioPower (@repioneer) and Danny Kennedy, founder of Sungevity (@dannyksfun). The discussion will focus on consumers' biggest concerns about the financial commitment of solar; how PV installers can make the financial case for residential and commercial PV; how solar sales pros can best display the value of solar systems and the benefits of solar financing to increase sales; and more. 

About Our Guests

A former software/systems engineer, Scott Gordon traded in his white collar for a "green" one in 2006 while shopping for a solar system for his own home. Since then, Scott and his team have sold over 10 megawatts of residential solar PV systems across California and Nevada. Scott was the driving force behind HelioPower’s first 1 Block Off the Grid (1BOG) campaign in 2009. The success of this and subsequent 1BOG campaigns have propelled HelioPower’s residential sales organization into California’s Top Ten. In late 2009, Scott forged a partnership with SunRun to offer Residential PPAs in the markets HelioPower serves. By allowing customers to go solar for as little as $1000 down, SunRun is now the financing vehicle of choice for over 60% of HelioPower’s residential customers.
 

A long-time social entrepreneur, Danny Kennedy has achieved global recognition as an environmental activist, spokesperson, and opinion leader. As Sungevity's executive leadership team and Board of Director, he is dedicated to bringing easy and affordable solar electricity to mainstream America and beyond. Most recently, Danny was the Campaign Manager for Greenpeace Australia Pacific. In 2001, he ran Greenpeace's California Clean Energy Campaign, the success of which helped lead to the current California Solar Initiative. Danny was the founder and first Executive Director of Project Underground and serves on several nonprofit boards.
