Soligent and SunWize have decided to integrate and combine their operations in order to reportedly become the largest provider of solar distribution and dealer services in the US. Their combined portfolio of offerings involve financing and value-added services for solar installers, energy efficiency firms, electrical contractors, and roofing companies.

Boyd Cohen, Ph.D. recently came up with a methodology to rank large cities in the U.S. based on how much they are preparing for or trying to counter climate change. He then went on to create and publish a top 10 list of the most “climate-ready” cities. While I think the term “climate-ready” is sort of a mistake, since he focuses more on efforts to stop climate change not adapt to it (which is what I would assume “climate-readiness” would be about), I think the overall idea and methodology looks great.
