It’s like a Nancy Drew book or one of those murder mystery dinners that are so popular these days—except it’s real life. Solar companies are dropping like flies; and the gumshoes here at Solar Wolf have already gotten to the bottom of the case, ensuring they won’t become the latest victim of the elusive ‘Solar Coaster.’Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki

In a time when statements and stats can be fact checked in an instant from a plethora of media devices, it is crucial to be transparent. When a company hides the truth or worse deliberately misinforms, it chips away at the customers belief in not just the company but all the associates of that company.

I see other designs, the promises made and...Jeff Hickson LEED APread more
For years Solar Wolf Energy has been getting phone calls for us to install a solar array on a past customer's summer home in Maine. For years we have had to let our amazing customers know that it may be a better option to drive hours into the Appalachians and mine coal for their own power, because it may be easier. It appears that even after TV broadcasts, newspaper articles, constituents asking, and even today the Maine House voting 108-38...Ted "The Wolf" Strzeleckiread more
So the news the last few days are about "the big green solar company" with Elon Musk as the largest shareholder. We have been getting some questions as to why Tesla, a already in debt cash burning company would want a massively in debt even substantially larger cash burner and one of the worst stocks that is publicly listed. The truth is obvious to a few, however most don't see it.Ted "The Wolf" Strzelecki
