What a long, strange trip its been (RIP Jerry). We started in solar, sold toys, recycled torchieres, made our way onto the events circuit, and now we’re dabbling as web developers. Who would’ve thought it. Here are some key milestones since we opened our doors 33 years ago:
- Grew operations to provide pop-up, kit programs, and limited-time offer services to over 30 energy efficiency programs and utilities
- Opened a Madison office to support Focus on Energy.
- Opened a Sacramento office to support Sacramento Municipal Utility District.
- Opened a San Diego office to support San Diego Gas & Electric
- Expanded operations onto the west coast, opening an office in Seattle, Washington to support Puget Sound Energy.
- Executed first limited-time offer through the Mass Save Program.
- Opened first office outside of New England to provide pop-up retail on behalf of New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program.
- Started supporting National Grid, NSTAR, and Western Massachusetts Electric Company (the latter two are now a part of Eversource) with pop-up retail.
- Completed first series of corporate sales events, educating and selling CFLs to interested employees.
- Began providing recycling support, helping to properly dispose torchieres on behalf of The United Illuminating Company in Connecticut.
- Started supporting energy-efficiency programs in Rhode Island on behalf of Narragansett Electric (now National Grid).
- Invented the world’s first motion-activated speech chip that powered our toy, Wake The Wizard!
- Opened for business selling solar PV charges to the private plane and marine industry.
Who are these fines folks? Glad you asked.
