In 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico and caused the longest blackout in U.S. history. The island’s long and difficult recovery has raised questions about the best ways to provide better infrastructure security in the parts of the world that are at the greatest risk due to climate change. Would Puerto Rico rebuild an outdated system based on coal and diesel fuel, or embrace the future by creating a utility grid that relies on renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar power?READ MORE
As I write this, the U.S. Senate is teeing up for a vote later this month on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ ambitious non-binding resolution to work towards a Green New Deal, which would confront climate change and social inequality through a coordinated effort to make alternative energy sources a pillar of our economy.READ MORE
The Green New Deal, a nonbinding resolution introduced by Senators Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ed Markey, has sparked a lot of discussion over the last several weeks. It is an ambitious plan to confront man-made climate change while also building an American economy that prioritizes renewable energy, innovation, and job creation. As such, it would have a tremendous impact on the solar energy industry (as well as other alternatives to fossil fuels) and the business community as a whole.READ MORE

I have had the pleasure of working with Bob for several years. In the beginning, Bob taught me important basics. Over a short period of time I was equipped with the language and tools to develop projects which resulted in more than 7 million dollars of sales. Over the past 5 years Bob has been a tremendous resource handling everything from initial ROI analysis to system design, rebate/ utility paperwork, city permitting, material sourcing, and final project paperwork. I can truly say Solar Design Studios played a major role in my success.
A sincere Thank You!
