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.
The fact is, there are so many myths and misconceptions about solar energy, it often scares people away. But it’s the job of organizations like EcoOutfitters, solar installers across the country, and the solar industry as a whole, to shed light on the truth about solar energy.
The 11/13/13 #SolarChat, entitled “Shining a Solar Marketing Light on Women,” was one for the records. Could this be the turning point for our industry in terms of how we think about marketing solar?
Here are some highlights from Raina Russo’s Twitter reporting from SPICon 2012 via @EcoOutfitters.
