Climate One: Solar FlaresAudio currently not available for this program.
Through all the growing pains and political attacks, the U.S. solar industry is still moving ahead. The founders of three prominent Bay Area startup companies that lease systems to homeowners share their insight on tapping the sun to get off fossil fuels, creating investment opportunities for small investors, and whether natural gas is a good bridge to cleaner power -- or dirty and unnecessary. They also talk about how monopoly utilities are grappling with their customers suddenly becoming competitors. Guests include: Ed Fenster, co-founder of Sunrun; Danny Kennedy, president and founder of Sungevity; Marco Krapels, executive vice president of Rabobank; and Lyndon Rive, co-founder and CEO of SolarCity.
