Solar Power Inc. got franchising rights a few weeks ago and will begin opening franchise stores in California. They will be called “YES! Solar Solutions” which is so happy it makes me throw up in my mouth a little. The name narrowly beat out second and third place: “Solar Power – EWW!” and “HOLY CRAP! Solar Power!” This is a new business model in a world of wildly different business models. Nothing has shaken out yet.

But I’ve got high hopes for Solar Power, Inc. You can tell by their AWESOME CORPORATE STOCK ART that they’re going to be big. Blockbuster Big. Speaking of which, Dan, can we get some corporate stock photos? I’m thinking like… a boardroom table with a disabled guy, an Afro American dude, a white woman, two Afro-American women with the curly bouncey fro’s, and probably an Asian guy throwing his hands in the air with a big smile, like we just figured out the solution for providing solar for Puppy Town. Make sure there’s a big whiteboard in the back with an upward trending line graph.

I know what you’re thinking… “But Dave, big corporate? They’re taking something beautiful and conservationistic and hippiefied and turning it into something ugly and evil with marketing jingles stuck in our heads for years, right?”

To that I say, “I’m a business hippie!” If it takes the equivalent of Blockbuster to make solar reach critical mass than so be it.

How much can you save with a solar roof?

Profit from your roof space: find local deals on solar, eliminate your power bill, and join the solar revolution.

So this picture in your mind is ugly…..” a disabled guy, an Afro American dude, a white woman, two Afro-American women with the curly bouncey fro’s,”

How nasty and racist of you…. Shame on you, subscription cancelled.
