Simplified but great information

I met Tim in our Chint Power Systems Sales summit in InterSolar San Diego. Since then, I started listening his episodes. That keeps me updated of the market status and business opportunities from great guests on the broadcast. I highly recommend it and will fully support his show 👍!

Best Solar show

This is the best Solar podcast I’ve found and I tried many. I’m new to the industry but there’s a broad range of thoughtful information for newbies to very seasoned Solar pros. Loads of great guests and current news trends.

Great Show! Love learning from Tim!
