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.
Our latest chat featured a lively discussion about solar in 2012, including solar policy, the 1603 treasury grant, specific state issues, broad trends in the industry, where solar businesses are going and how SEIA and other advocacy groups can help.

Day 2 at PV America East was incredibly busy. From a packed Solar Swap brainstorming session to an engaging #SolarChat LIVE TweetUp, the day was very, very bright. Here are some highlights.
