With the Solyndra debacle fresh in our minds and the solar industry coming under fire, I am curious how the small business community views the industry. Do you think it has been hyped as a job creator and the energy savings from solar have been overstated? Or do you think the alternative energy industry (specifically solar) is a necessity for US economy?
Again, I ask all of you to please complete the small business survey for the event Small Business California is doing with the Travelers Institute on October 20th. (Survey link is below)
It takes about five minutes. I will also be sending the results to Mike Rossi, the economic development Czar for the Governor. Thank you to all that have already taken the survey. We really appreciate your time and opinions.
I know that this email goes around the state but anyone interested in attending the luncheon Oct 20th is welcome to attend. I think we will reach capacity so I encourage you to register now. (Link to register is below)
There is no cost to attending this event and the panel for the event will include myself and:
- Marc Schmittlein, President and CEO of Travelers Select Accounts
- Christine Baker, Acting Director of the Department of Industrial Relations
- Elizabeth Echols, Regional Administrator SBA
- Regina Dick Endrizzi Director, SF Office of Small Business
