SPI 2009 - First thoughts

I am here at Solar Power International  2009 in Anaheim and I’ve just had my first taste of the exhibit floor.  Or should I say, floors – there are three of them at the ground level, plus more upstairs!  More than 900 exhibitors on this floor makes it something of an overwhelming experience.

One cool discovery already is a company called Pictometry that is selling high quality images with resolution far greater than Google Earth.  They also have some smart looking software that allows for accurate site measurements online.  This is part of what is great about this show - the chance to discover new resources that have the potential to make the job easier that you weren’t even looking for until you saw it!

Greetings, and welcome to my blog.  In it I will be providing views on the solar industry, including information about why solar is more affordable than ever, new developments in solar technology, and upcoming events of interest to solar enthusiasts.  If you find the contents of this blog interesting, please tell your friends.

Here’s a little background on me and Run on Sun:

Run on Sun was founded in 2006 by Jim Jenal and Brad Banta.  We believed then - and even more so now - that there is a need in the solar installer industry for clear communications about how solar works, and how it can best work for commercial and residential consumers.  This blog is an additional part of that effort to increase our communications with the solar-interested public.  
We welcome your questions and comments - if there is an area of solar that you would like us to discuss, please let us know.

Jim Jenal - is a resident of Pasadena, California and the co-founder and CEO of Run on Sun.  Jim holds a B.S. in Mathematics, an M.S. in Computer Science and a J.D.  
In a long and varied career, Jim has worked as a Member of Technical Staff for Bell Labs, taught high school (at Mayfield Senior School here in Pasadena), developed the nation’s first municipal ordinance regulating ozone-depleting compounds, and practiced law with the preeminent law firm in Los Angeles, O’Melveny & Myers.  
Now a recovering lawyer, he brings a multi-dimensional perspective to the solar industry and green technology.
