(GLOBE & MAIL – Jun 28, 2011)In a Globe & Mail article published June 28, reporter Shelley White provides an inside look at the solar power industry, featuring Solar Power Network CEO, Peter Goodman. With an abundance of discussion on the FIT program, the piece explores SPN’s unique five degree approach to panel angle and its significance for owners looking to join the green roof movement, while concerned with space or load constraints. Peter discusses the value of the SPN method of rooftop rentals, and the ease it provides owners by taking the guesswork out of solar installations:
“Building owners don’t have to worry about how much power we’re generating, or what kind of panels we’re using, or what our deal is with the Ontario Power Authority,” said Peter Goodman, CEO of Solar Power Network. “They’re literally getting paid to be green, because I’m renting their rooftop.”
For SPN, having the public and media take an interest in solar panel technology is an encouraging sign of what’s to come for our industry.
