About SolarDave

Dave’s Solar Power Knowledge:
Let me start off saying that I am not an expert in solar power. In fact, I know very little!

So why read this blog? Because I am learning, and as I learn and blog, I’m creating great “Solar 101” content.

If you are also a beginner like me by reading my blog you can quickly get up to speed on what you need to know about starting your own solar project.

If you are learning too and have some tips you would like to share, please contact me.

RSS Button for SolarDave Feed

So what does this big yellow RSS button do? By clicking on it and adding it to a feed reader like Google Reader you can get alerted when I post a new video or article.

If you would rather get alerted via email because you have no idea what RSS is, just submit your email below and I will send you an email when my site has added new content. I promise not to spam you and you will get instructions in each email on how to unsubscribe.

Tell Me About Future Videos!

I was an acoustical consultant for about 15 years. Even though my knowledge is mostly in audio, I have a solid background in low voltage systems. I have even done some of my own high voltage work.

Solar Contractor Directory

Since I have been doing many video interviews with solar installers I thought it would be good to create a list of solar contractors where I have do research so far. If you are interested in being on this list please watch this short video before creating an account.

You can also follow me on my Twitter Account @SolarDavecom or face me up on my Facebook FanPage.

Ethics Statement

This is the somewhat boring section where I tell you about how I may or may not make money from my site. But it’s important for you to know because they are a ton of scammy solar sites out there that claim to be objective when they are not while getting paid from the vendor they are reviewing.

I try to be as objective as I can be, but I am not a trained journalist by any means.

I don’t accept any money or free products or anything else of value from the things I cover here. However, I do get a free t-shirt or a baseball cap sometimes but usually I don’t wear them because they usually don’t look that great.

I don’t own any stock in the solar field at all. I stopped buying individual stocks after the dot com crash because I lost my shirt.

I do accept money from solar contractors that are listed in my solar contractor directory in exchange for leads that I send them. I list them by how many video interviews I have done with them.

On occasion, I have written negative reviews of products from companies that have asked me to review them. Currently I do not have an affiliate links on my site what so ever. If that changes I will let you know.

The bottom line is my readers are very important to me. I want them to know I have their best interest at heart when I write a blog post. Over the years I have received many nice emails from my readers and that makes me very happy. Even though I don’t make much money from this site I really enjoy spending time on it.
