Well, that was awkward! -Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Ever find yourself on a flight next to someone who just wants to talk? You know, you exchange pleasantries and you think you can go back to watching a movie, doing work, or reading and this person does not stop talking. That was my first leg of the trip. According to the flight map, this guy talked from Chicago to Utah. What made it worse was that he was telling me of his “second business” – trying to sell solar projects to manufacturing clients with battery storage as if this were a new idea. He had never been in the industry, and did not even know the difference between energy and ancillary services. He honestly thought all he needed to do was offer a solar project with some battery storage and SNAP! Everybody could have cheap, clean power without any connection to anything else.
