Education about renewable energy—primarily solar—has been Solar Planet's core purpose since founder and president Ken Anderson, PhD began sharing his knowledge and research in 2009. Today, Solar Planet proudly announced a solar referral network as a natural extension of the company's goal to help consumers understand and efficiently use solar energy. The company's root purpose and new direction are combined in the maxim: Solar Planet is your solar source for installation, education, and inspiration.
This election season's increasing focus on environmental impact, domestically sustainable fuel sources, and U.S. job growth underlines the need for action from trusted solar education and advocacy sources. A recent survey of registered voters by independent polling firm Hart Research Associates found that 92% considered it "very" or "somewhat" important for the United States to develop and use solar power.
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, “As of August 2011, there were over 100,000 solar workers in the U.S., more than double the estimated employment in 2009. These workers are employed at 5,600 businesses operating at over 6,500 locations in every state.” Solar Planet is a web-based company in a unique position to help businesses nationwide find new clients to continue the upward trend.
“In today's challenging economy, every person and every company has a responsibility to promote domestic and local business growth to keep and create jobs,” said Anderson. “Helping solar energy companies gain new clients aligns with the green energy-focused ideals of Solar Planet, creates jobs, and helps Americans save precious household income against rising home energy costs.”
Solar Planet is currently accepting applications from installers across the country and offering half price discounts with satisfaction guaranteed to new customers through December 31, 2012. Solar energy installers and companies wishing to join the Solar Planet referral network are invited to visit www.solarplanet.net today to start receiving local, prescreened, interested consumers.
