May 2010 has been a good month – graduation, partying and a new job. I started at Ar.eva Solar this week in the sales and business development group – helping sell solar thermal systems worldwide.This is the same team that was previously called Au. sra – but earlier this year was acquired by the French nuclear company, Ar.eva. The latter for last few years has been building up a portfolio of renewable energy technologies and this is their solar bet.
What it means is that the company, as a part of a big organization, is not going to be cash strapped but hopefully still maintain its nimbleness – at least for the next couple of years. I am excited about the opportunity and there are a lot of new things to learn. It’s going to be a good ride for sure. I will post more on solar/renewable energy as I learn more – but for now this is the last blog on the “switching to renewable energy” topic.
It’s great to be sitting in a meeting where “carbon footprint” is organically brought up as part of business :). Good luck for all the other switchers out there.
