Yesterday in Richmond at the old Ford factory, the Craneway, Luminalt’s Jeanine Cotter spoke along with Sunpower CEO Tom Werner and Ford executive Michael Tinsky to announce a new partnership that will bring home solar to new owners of the all electric Ford Focus. The base system starts at 2.5kW for approximately $10,000 after rebates and incentives. Jeanine emphasized the importance this project would have for creating local jobs and revitalizing American car production.

Here are a few articles about the partnership:

Jeanine is quoted in this article from Reuters and the blog CleanTechnica. Here’s an excerpt from that article:

Jeanine Cotter, CEO of Luminalt Solar Energy Solutions, likened the program to having the ability 30 years ago to freeze the cost of gas at $1.20 per gallon for 20 years. “You’re locking in your energy costs for the next several decades,” she said. “If I could have done that 30 years ago, I would have.”
