Please take our listener survey.
The residential solar market has come a long way since the early 2000s, but there's still ample room for growth. Our guest today on the Clean Power Hour is a true veteran of the industry who's been innovating in rooftop solar for over 14 years. Dave Anderson, founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Complete Solaria, joins Tim Montague to discuss the evolution of financing models, the importance of trusted advisors, and his company's unique partnership strategy to accelerate residential solar adoption.
Complete Solaria is bringing a vertically integrated approach to residential solar, enabling HVAC, security, and other home service companies to easily add solar to their product mix. As founder of Complete Solaria, Dave is pushing rooftop solar forward through strategic partnerships that make it easy for home service companies to add solar.
In this episode, Dave recounts his journey into solar, beginning in a Montana coal town and later building one of California's largest rooftop solar installers. He shares observations on how much the industry has evolved, the rise of financing options, and why a personalized sales approach still dominates.
Looking ahead, Dave discusses the accelerating trend of pairing solar with batteries, innovations like virtual power plants, and the impacts of policy shifts like NEM 3.0. While the market still has ample room to grow, Complete Solaria is driving adoption by allowing HVAC, security, and other home service companies to offer solar seamlessly.
If you're interested in the past, present, and future of residential solar, you won't want to miss Dave's insights from the frontlines of this fast-changing industry.
