SPOTLIGHT: Marshall Gingold
Marshall had been
considering solar for his Sunnyvale home for some time, but since he
used less than $100 of electricity per month, the economics weren’t
working out. In 2014, however, Marshall learned about SunWork
and received a quote that he was happy with. SunWork
installed a 14-panel, 3.5 kW system that has been saving him more than
$1,000 per year. He has been so enthusiastic about solar energy that
he’s volunteered with both SunWork and Sunnyvale’s city-wide “Energize
Sunnyvale” campaign, using his marketing talents to help spread the
word about solar’s potential. READ MORE...
