Women in Clean Tech | Lyla Ramos Absolutely Loves It

Clean Tech is, sadly, still a man’s world, which is why we love having Lyla Ramos as part of our team. Lyla builds our control boards, which include many very small parts. This plays to Lyla’s passions: she has always loved miniatures and getting close to things most of us walk over: fungi and mosses, which she also photographs.

Third Time’s the Charm | Solar Is The Answer | By Arnold Leitner, CEO

When I launched YouSolar a decade ago in the “Dark Ages of Solar”, defined as the two or three years after the collapse of the solar technology company Solyndra in 2011, I gave an elevator pitch to a venture capitalist. I do not think he listened to anything I said while he studied my business card. But after I was done, he looked up and said: “No one will invest in a company with the word ‘solar’ in its name.” My response was that that was crazy because solar energy will be the single most important energy source in this century.

Happy Thanksgiving from YouSolar

Few birds are as beautiful as the turkey, a species only found in North America. On Thanksgiving, it is a symbol of all plants and animals that we rely on to nourish ourselves.

Seamless Generator Integration | A Multiple-Source Feature of the PowerBloc

Yes, generators are on their way out. Solar-battery systems are more reliable and produce cheaper electricity than generators. Solar-battery systems are also clean and silent.  But if you are off-grid and your roof is covered with snow or run a clinic or other critical facility, it is still very reasonable to include a generator as an additional backup energy source to charge the batteries.

The Joy of Success | From Jaguars to Peregrine Falcons | A Personal Note by YouSolar, CEO, Arnold Leitner

Last week the New York Times reported on the Return of the Jaguar in Mexico, which is coming back in the Yucatán Peninsula thanks to conservation efforts. The Times reports that “in Mexico, an alliance of ecologists, nongovernmental organizations and local communities have embarked on an ambitious conservation project that has effectively pulled the species back from the brink — part of a broader mission to save the jungles of the Yucatán."
