Welcome to Episode 77 of Suncast!

Did you check out the last Suncast episode? It's a Tactical Tuesday with Scott Sullivan! Listen to it here!

If you've been listening for the last few episodes, we've been talking about tools that today's leading solar companies are using to grow their business, and today I have the honor to sit down with one of my good friends in the solar biz who, along with his partner, has built arguably the most recognizable software for most of you, especially if you've been doing commercial solar for any period of time.

You can check out part 2 of this 2-part series with Paul, here!


Back in the Adam Gerza episode, I mentioned how easily 50% of the installers I meet are using Energy Toolbase.  I'd be willing to bet that number is actually closer to 80% for today's guest. He hit me with the staggering fact that they have >3000 users!  So whether you are or aren't one of the 3000 who already sings the praises of Helioscope from the rooftops, you'll want to hang around for today's episode with Paul Grana to learn more about how and why this software has gotten such traction in the solar market.
