Sustainabilist to Conduct Day-Long Workshop on Scientific Process Improvement for C&I and Utility Solar at SPI

Sustainabilist to Conduct Day-Long Workshop on Scientific Process Improvement for C&I and Utility Solar at SPI

Sustainabilist will teach attendees at this year’s SPI in Salt Lake City, UT how to apply scientific process improvement and modern manufacturing science to solar installations to reduce or eliminate costly rework, increase build quality, and improve the transparency of construction processes.

An undergrad at UC Berkeley, Michael Palmquist came to the conclusion that energy was the space he could make the biggest impact for the planet. Once there, however, he found the solar industry to be disorganized and full of wasteful ad hoc processes. 10 years later, armed with experience in the software industry, he came back with a mission and a groundbreaking product: SolarNexus.

When the founder of ConnectDER saw a meter swap while doing a site visit along with a utility, something clicked. “That’s a plug,” he remembers thinking. “Why can’t we use that to eliminate all the extra cost to create an intercept between the home circuit and the DER circuit?”

Top 5 Ways Mass Manufacturing Science Can Improve Solar Installations

Over the last several years there has been much discussion about the difficulty of lowering costs associated with solar energy system installation. At Sustainabilist, we believe that manufacturing science--one of our areas of expertise--holds the solutions to these problems.
