Personal Comments:

I "grew up" in this business, having started as a wind generator rebuilder and installer in 1977, and took on PV in 1980. As one of the first private-market applications pioneers, I found strong niches to fill, first in direct-DC applications for homes, then in solar water pumping.

I sold my share of Dankoff Solar Products in January 2005. It's now called Conergy, Inc. It's in good hands -- I surrounded myself with people more competent than myself! By that time, I felt complete in my accomplishments.

I continue with volunteer work, teaching, writing, and informal mentoring to students and professionals.

With my new freedom, I do wilderness travel, wood turning, flute making, jazz playing, and good-timing with my grandkids.

Business Comments:

Dankoff Solar products (now Conergy) is a wholesale-only distributor of PV & wind system components and a manufacturer and importer of solar water pumps. I began selling remote home wind electric system in 1977, PV systems in 1980 and solar water pumps in 1983. In 1997, with Paul Benson (now CEO), we went wholesale-only.

I sold my shares and retired in 2005.
