Happy Thanksgiving! Wow — what a year it's been. We kicked off 2015 with a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, where we completed a 6kW off-grid installation on a remote oceanside bed and breakfast. We moved into a new office space in Southeast Portland, launched a new websitecelebrated Oregon Wild's conservation efforts, and were recognized as one of the nation's top solar contractors for the third year in a row — all on top of installing over 500kW of solar in the Portland Metro area.

We're incredibly grateful for our industry partners and the innovative technology that enables us to implement systems and protect the places we love. We'd like to thank the staff at Energy Trust of Oregon for their continued support, SolarWakeup for providing our daily dose of solar news, and the teams at Enphase, IronRidge, SolarWorld USA, Platt Electric, and Quick Mount PV. We'd also like to thank Digital Verde for their media production expertise, Natural Grain Home Services for outfitting our office with exquisite wood furniture, the professors who taught and inspired us at Oregon Institute of Technology, Solar Power World for their continual support and industry coverage, and OSEIA for their continued fight to keep renewables on political dockets. Last but certainly not least, thank you to everyone else — our family, friends, colleagues, and clients — for supporting our mission to critically address the way society uses and thinks about energy. We wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.

With gratitude,
