We are a diverse team based in San Francisco, passionate about advancing the growth of solar energy. In 2012, while still in graduate school, Sam and Chris installed a commercial solar system for a school in East Africa. The project was a resounding success, allowing the school to save on its electricity bills as well as have a reliable and carbon-free source of energy.
