Zvik was quoted stating, "With so much turmoil from recent wildfires sprouted from large utility cutting corners, the solar industry is more cautious than ever to make sure that no homes or lives are lost due to something as simple as powering a home or business. We want our communities and those who work so hard to protect us to feel safe with solar, and the rapid shutdown requirements are necessary to ensure the solar industry can provide that ease of mind."
"I felt that Ed did an excellent job explaining the importance of the rapid shutdown requirements, and he and I believe that it's so important for the public to be aware that there are safety measures like this in place," shares Zvik commenting on his addition to Harner's statements.
On another topic, Zvik shared his excitement for new storage technology that uses primarily gravity. He stated, "Solar technology is growing so rapidly that we're beginning to explore avenues we could have never imagined only a few years ago. Solar power itself is already an extraordinary discovery in that we have the main resource we need, the sun, given to us for free with each rising day. And now with the hope that gravity, easily harnessable source, could be used for energy storage, we may be on the brink of a new era in solar energy with higher efficiency and lower costs."
And he continued by discussing the evolution of technology commenting, "It's funny how sometimes the seemingly most innovative technologies stem from past technologies that we thought we had developed to their full extent. Going back to solar energy for example, the sun has literally been around since the beginning of time, but relatively speaking, we just recently started using it as an energy source, and it's my belief that we've barely scratched the surface of the sun's potential. It will be amazing to witness the technologies we develop over the next few decades--developments that we haven't even dreamed up yet that will blow us away and completely change our world as we know it."
Most recently, Zvik shared his thoughts on solar growth in Texas explaining Green Solar Technologies' ties to Texas. He shared, "Texas has always been a huge state for Green Solar Technologies. Not only do Texans truly appreciate the benefits of rooftop solar panels, but some of the largest solar companies in the country that we've worked with have been based in Texas, so it comes to no surprise that they're continuing down a path of renewable energy."
And he wrapped up by mentioning, "Possibly the most surprising part about Texas showing dedication to solar is that it is a fairly rainy state in comparison to a state like California or Arizona," shares Zvik. "But this actually proves that solar can be beneficial in any climate especially as storage technology continues to develop rapidly. We're needing less and less overall sunlight in order to produce more and more power from solar, which is good news for parts of the country with limited sun. And with Texas being such a large state, it encompasses just about every climate imaginable in the continental U.S. so if Texas can trust solar, so can the rest of the country."
Nicki Zvik has been a prominent voice in the solar world for sometime, and he promises to continue to remain vocal.
