Sam started working in solar as a commercial installer in 2011 and has been a professional writer for more than a decade. He's been published by the Associated Press, Yahoo! Finance, MarketWatch, Home.com and many other digital and print outlets.

Based just outside of Seattle, his 4.5 kW solar system provides enough power for his wife, daughter, and dog -- for now.
