I did have a very good experience with all the folks who worked on my solar installation project. Both the Sungevity folks and the Ally folks were pleasant and friendly and quick to explain things and answer any questions I posed. The men were courteous and were helpful in explaining how and what it was they were doing. I learned a lot from them. The men were careful when they had to move things and always let me know what their progress was each day they were here.

It was also a nice surprise that they made sure everything was absolutely cleaned up at the end of each day­­area swept, things replaced (waste cans, etc) When all was completed, I had a "tutorial session" on how to read the monitoring system. All in all, the project was done well and in good time.

I couldn't be happier! I am off the grid and am part of the "going green" movement. Hurray! Feel free to share my experience in your marketing material. As for my professional status, I am a retired pastor. I served as pastor in 2 congregations. I was then appointed as Assistant to the Bishop of our judicatory­­ the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Our territory is northern California, with some 200 congregations. I served three successive bishops for over 20 years in that position. My portfolio included conflict consultation, working with candidates for ordination, and liaison with our seminary in Berkeley. And, whatever else the bishop assigned to me!

These days, I sing in the choir in the congregation where I am a member, work occasionally in the church garden and any project that can use some assistance. Our congregation, Resurrection Lutheran Church in Oakland, is multicultural and active in the wider Oakland community. Nearly half of our congregation come from Tanzania, which is wonderful!

I share my home and life with 3 lovely kitties(Clancy, Angel and Rollie) and a sweet (second chance) older dog from the Oakland SPCA­­Shelby, a Maltese/Terrier mix. They keep my life interesting and busy!
