S3:E17 Erthos- Reinventing Solar from the Ground Up

In today’s episode, our host Lisa Ann Pinkerton (CEO of Technica Communications), and guest Daniel Flanigan (Chief Marketing & Product Officer at Erthos) explore the varied problems that come from switching to solar power as well as their exciting possible solutions! 

Solar energy, while promising, has not yet reached its full potential as a comprehensive energy solution for the future. Nonetheless, innovative companies like Erthos are at the forefront of advancing the solar sector. As Dan puts it, envision an “Uber for solar” model: Erthos is championing the development of highly efficient solar panels, complemented by ingenious placement and design tactics. Their ambition is to harmoniously blend automation with solar technology, aiming to create a more efficient, cleaner solar energy market.
