Installation at Southern Energy Management

We installed our new product, Lift, at the offices of Southern Energy Management in Raleigh-Durham, NC. SEM has been a fantastic partner, and was our first Spotlight Solar Certified Integrator.

Many thanks to Budway (really), Jimmy, and Nate for doing a first rate job with something brand new and novel — in the bitter cold and rain no less.   We started off on a bad foot by asking them for a pre-build planning meeting right before Christmas, starting at 5:00.  But they brought a great attitude (typical of Southern Energy), and made the job in January look easy.

In fact, the installation was remarkably easy. The team had to think things through for the first time, so that took a little time, but everything went together well on the first try. Credit to Rob Surra, Spotlight’s leader of product development, for a great design that prioritizes installation.

Thanks as well to Max, David B, James, and JJ at Southern Energy Management. And most of all, thanks to Bob and Maria Kingery, co-founders of SEM, for their unwavering support of Spotlight Solar.  They run a terrific company that serves customers, and higher purposes, extremely well.  We’re privileged to have their partnership.

There's tar on our heels

We’re based in Chapel Hill, NC.  It’s a terrific place with a lot of well educated and creative people.  It is also the domain of people known as Tarheels (like Hokies, only less hokey).  No one can apparently prove one theory over another as to the origin of the term Tarheel.

At any rate, we were happy to be featured this week in an article in The Daily Tarheel, published by the University of NC at Chapel Hill.  While not 100% accurate (e.g., we don’t make solar panels), the article portrays our genuine interest in helping to develop careers in renewable energy.  Jessica Bruckert, for instance, is one of a growing number of students willing to help Spotlight Solar as we expand.  We are excited to have their enthusiasm and contributions.  We think this bodes well for the future of renewable energy.

We're here to help.

We at Spotlight Solar wish it to be known that we are here to help.

1.  We will help our customers to earn a reputation for leadership in renewable energy, and distinguish their properties with great looking solar systems.

2.  We will help accelerate the adoption of solar by making it more visible and attractive, and help the industry to avoid “commoditization.”

3.  We will help our team members and business partners to succeed.


So, in the immortal words of Jerry Maguire, “help me to help you.”  Send us an email through our Contact page, and tell us how we can be helpful.
