battagin attends solar show
Feather River Solar Electric owner Bill Battagin was in San Francisco recently attending the Intersolar North American trade show. It is the largest event of the year for solar industry professionals, connecting manufacturers with installers. Bill said the three-day event included displays and seminars focused on the newest cutting-edge technology, future trends and policies all related to the solar industry. He said it was also a great opportunity to meet one-on-one with his main suppliers to discuss a variety of issues regarding panels, inverters and racking.
I should also note that Bill is celebrating his 35th year with Feather River Stoveworks, his other business headquartered in Taylorsville that also serves the entire region.
Paul Mundorff is enjoying his eighth successful year in business with The Bike Shop in Quincy. Truly an expert when it comes to bikes, Paul carries the Torker Electric Assist Hybrid. It’s ideal, he said, for those concerned with high gas prices. The store is located on Lawrence Street next to the recently reopened Moon’s restaurant.
