Annual Letters From the CEO

Every year, Sol Systems CEO Yuri Horwitz works with team members to review, assess, and mold our unique view on the state of the solar industry. These assessments take form in an annual open letter to the solar industry that we release at the beginning of each year. These letters include looks at past trends in technology, financing strategies, and policy, as well as projections and assumptions for the future landscape of solar energy.
