Run on Sun in the News

This has been an unusually busy week for Run on Sun in the news, driving record website traffic and even a quote in one of the Nation’s most influential newspapers.

The week kicked off with the announcement of new team member Sarah Dara which was one of our most “retweeted” stories ever.

Then we took to task Ms. Helen Burt from PG&E over her declaration of war against the solar industry.  What had been a largely unnoticed story suddenly got some significant, and deserved, attention with reporters in London (Nilima Choudhury writing over at PV-Tech.org - PG&E Accused of Declaring War on Solar) and New Hampshire (James Montgomery for RenewableEnergyWorld.com - Net Metering Debate Rages on Despite Calls for Calm) picking up the story.

Finally, Founder & CEO Jim Jenal was quoted in today’s Wall Street Journal in an article by Cassandra Sweet discussing the growing trend of residential solar leasing (subscription required - but a Google search for “Jenal Wall Street Journal” may be more successful).

In the article, Jenal points out that despite the trend toward residential leasing, such arrangements are typically not great investments for the solar customer who pays longer for the system under a lease, but owns nothing at the end.  “Our sense is that the leasing deals are a good arrangement for the financing people, they’re not as great an arrangement for the end customer,” he said.

To which we can only add - hey, LA Times, get with the program!

Sounds like Jim, and his Run on Sun team, have been employing their myriad talents this week. If you don’t find them “up on the roof” installing a system, you can count on their being in the trenches, getting the word out, and striving to ensure that a complete perspective on any solar related enterprise is revealed. Nice job, folks!
