Mixing with homeowners may be a bit ironic; Gary Rappenecker hasn't owned a home since 1997, when he and his wife sold out lock, stock, & barrel to do volunteer work in South America & East Africa.
Although he hasn't recently owned land, (he IS shopping; any realtors in the room?) he has covered plenty. Having spent years in places where infrastructure and governments are unstable and unpredictable, working in the solar energy sector has been a welcome way to return to the United States. The sun stays steady when nothing else seems to.
With The Solar Company’s creative focus on education, environment, & new ideas, they gladly found a place for Mr. Rappenecker upon his return to the US in 2010.
At today’s event, he will briefly summarize the expertise of his colleagues who are veterans in the solar field. Feel free to ask questions, lend your knowledge, or even do a bit of heckling.
