From the Green Jobs Bus Tour.

Sungevity….. doesn’t the name sound cool! Like the longevity of the sun sang a song of its future plans to sustain us. Okay maybe that’s a little far reaching. Its been a long journey…. but filled with so much inspiration! Sungevity is a solar company that uses satellite technology to help customers assess their solar needs. The main office is located in Jack London Square in the heart of downtown Oakland. As we sat in the lobby employees came in with their bikes ready for work. You can tell that the folks that work at Sungevity are dedicated to a “green” lifestyle even outside of the office. In addition to these happy healthy workers here in the Bay Area, Sungevity is helping to create green jobs around the nation as they partner solar instillation companies in various states. Their Founder Danny Kennedy was full of innovation and inspiration. He obviously understands the power of this new clean energy economy not just in finance but in the lives of everyday people. What stuck out the most to me is that they lease the systems to their customers so the initial investment is not so prohibitive.
