#SolarChat Recap 3/14/12: Solar Does Good
Post Written by Raina Russo
For Raina Brett Russo, taking care of the environment is a necessity, not an option. Having grown up in Israel, a place where conservation is required and solar hot water heating is the norm, Raina knows the importance of solar energy. Through her work with the EcoOutfitters.net team, Raina found a way to help grow the solar industry in a significant way. As the founder and host of #SolarChat, a bi-monthly "gathering" on Twitter, Raina and her team have created an engaged solar think-tank community that comes together regularly for collaboration and networking with the ultimate goal in mind of spreading the solar message.

For companies like GM, solar adoption makes perfect business sense. A new report from the Solar Energy Industries of America’s recognizes GM and other top corporations for being a shining light for the industry.
