The Energy Show with Barry Cinnamon 

Podcast

Overview

Listen to The Energy Show, a weekly podcast that educates the public and professionals on best practices when it comes to home energy usage, and how it relates to solar energy.

Barry Cinnamon hosts a weekly 20-minute podcast, The Energy Show, based out of San Jose, CA. This bite-sized show is quick to consume, and geared towards educating the public and professionals on best practices when it comes to home energy usage, and how it relates to solar energy. 

Barry heads up Cinnamon Energy Systems (a San Jose residential and commercial  solar and energy storage contractor) and Spice Solar (suppliers of built-in solar racking technology). After 10,000+ installations at Akeena Solar and Westinghouse Solar, he’s developed a pretty good perspective on the real-world economics of rooftop solar — as well as the best products and services for homeowners, manufacturers and installers. His rooftop tinkering led to the development of integrated racking (released in 2007), AC solar modules (released in 2009), and Spice Solar (the fastest way to install rooftop solar modules).
