Thanksgiving, 2022.

On Thanksgiving EVE I took Olga out to Howard Park in Tarpon Springs and we watched the sunset.

Olga likes the Greek restaurants out by the spongedocks there, so we had a delicious dinner after the sun went down.

This is my first Thanksgiving with the Ukrainian Delegation, and Mom is hosting today.

Mom and Dad always have amazing Thanksgiving dinners!

Some pics from that night:

Olga and my daughter Claire…


I don’t know what to do with myself on holidays.

I’ve been walking every morning with Olga, then hitting the pool for a cold swim.

In general I’ve been a bit bored.

NOT that many solar leads coming in, so I jumped on installs Monday and Tuesday this week.

On monday ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

This was a STEEP roof, 2 stories up…. very dicey. Solar installs are harder and more dangerous on steeper roofs.

I wore a harness, but it got in the way.

I’ve also been working on my consulting business:

I was on the phone with some potential clients yesterday in Kansas, Texas and Alabama.

There is only so much I can do to grow Tampa Bay Solar, right now our install teams are backed up to April.

Can I help smaller installers in other states build a sales team?

Can I help 300 small companies go from $800K a year to $800K a month?

The big national solar installers are a mess; Momentum, Tesla Solar…. Sunrun….

Vivint was bought by ADT… after they did a ton of messed up and poorly executed installs.

The smaller, more local installers are going to have the most consistent quality in the long run.

This is why Tampa Bay Solar has kept up a good reputation since 2010.

Install quality determines the future of any solar installer.

I hope everyone who reads this has a lovely Thanksgiving!
