Solar Business Boom May Be On the Horizon

  Because of recent state legislation, South Carolina residents and companies are finding more affordable ways to add solar to their homes and buildings.  In fact, it may even be possible now to install solar with no up-front money, while at the same time improving your cash flow.

Mike Switzer interviews Don Zimmerman, president and CEO of Alder Energy Systems in Mount Pleasant, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
