NICO: Hey, Welcome back solar warriors. I’m thrilled that you have chosen to spend another hour of your life with me, this time with an amazing entrepreneur that I am excited to bring to you. Today’s guest has been building an iconic solar business since many of you were even born. Gary Gerber founded Sun Light & Power in Berkeley, CA, in 1976 and he’s built one of the most trusted brands in the California solar market. It was humbling and educational to finally sit down with Gary and chat about his four-plus decades of experience. I learned the value of leaning in long term when you’ve got a good idea, and why selling his company to his employees after 40 years was a sound business decision. Gary also told me his secret to success.

Hey, when you’re done checking out this one, will you please go over to my where you’ll be able to find the 150+ other inspiring and influential leaders’ stories. But for now, let’s tune up your skills, solar warriors, as we tune in to another powerful conversation here on SunCast.

Today we have a true solar pioneer. We are back with the solar pioneer series. Mr. Gary Gerber is the Founder and President of Sun Light & Power. He has been in this industry longer than many of you listeners have been on the planet. And his company has served more customers than many of you have had the privilege to meet. So, I am really eager and excited today to have a chance to interact with someone who has seen the breadth and depth of the growth of our industry. He’s certainly up there with other icons like Sam Vanderhoof who has been on the show. It’s a true pleasure to have someone on the show who’s been around for 40+ years. Gary, welcome to SunCast.
