Hi Wyatt, Thank you for submitting your proposal. Given that your company is readying to sell this product, is this proposal mostly about speeding the uptake of your offering (and that of others in this space)? Are you looking for any funding to support your efforts to promote this product to a wider audience or other funding? If so, I would suggest that you update the "What are the proposal’s costs?" section. Regards, Jeff Harti

Hi Wyatt, Thanks very much for the fascinating proposal. I was completely unaware this system existed. Besides the anti-islanding stipulations, what are some of the regulations that apply to this technology? I'd hate to see it under-regulated now, and have prohibitive regulations enacted following following significant uptake of the technology. The anti-islanding stipulation presents an interesting question. At present, its inclusion makes sense (definitely the potential for blown circuit breakers otherwise). I wonder, however, if it could one day be set to feed directly into home battery technology such as Tesla's recently announced Powerwall. Your supplemental material was very useful, and your product description was very easy to grasp. A great proposal. I wish you all the best in your business venture! Best regards, Dustin Carey Catalyst

Could you please clarify what is the innovation in your proposal? You mention that these systems already exist. So your proposal actually aims at promoting these systems ("What we propose is more people educate, inform, and recommend these solar panel systems to their friends and others"). However, you merely describe the PV system and do not mention how the education and information part should work. Could you elaborate on that please?

I was excited enough to write a thought I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it just me or do a few of these comments look like they are written by brain dead folks? And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you make a list all of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile? http://www.clashofclans.rocket-hacks.com/

The concept of plug-and-play solar panels is neat. In terms of ways of raising awareness and promoting adoption, which the judges questioned in their evaluations, how about holding product demonstrations for journalists, climate activist leaders & organizations, civic group/community leaders, pundits, celebrities active on climate change, and elected leaders? (With respect to the last group, your state & municipal leaders and federal representatives to Congress are obligated to respond to you, though depending on where you live, the climate champions in other states and/or in national office may be more receptive.) Not only could the product demos generate earned/free media, they could convert super influencers impressed by them into advocates who'll help spread the word. You could also institute a referral program: refer a friend and get a discount.

fyi, I just learned of a kickstarter campaign for something very like this. I contributed to it. Good luck to you.
