Personal Comments:

Our shop, house, store and a couple rentals are solar powered. As of 12/12, after 13 years of making Biodiesel for our transportation needs, we now also have a Toyota RAV4EV which is charged with an upgraded PV system here. About 80% of my wife's transportation is done with the RAV, the rest with the Jetta TDI. When I'm not hiking, riding my ZERO electric motorcycle or skiing, I'm driving my BioD-powered truck for my transportation.
Interests?...I'm interested in leaving my kids a planet that's worth living on. We all know now what's hit the fan and it's not just our kids responsibility to fix it, it's ours. If we don't try, why would they?

Business Comments:

I've had a long time passion for the solutions that solar energy offers. I bought my first PV (literally one) in 1982 and expanded until I had enough panels to call PG&E to ask them to disconnect my house from the grid, which they did. My involvement continued installing off-grid systems until I became a C-10 electrical contractor, thence beginning Feather River Solar Electric. These days I find myself doing mostly grid intertie installations in Plumas County and continue doing some off-grid jobs, upgrades, repairs.
