I’ve been talking lately a lot with entrepreneurs helping solve the “Digitalization of solar” with software and hardware that speeds up inefficient processes and mundane tasks, and greatly accelerate our industry’s ability to scale. I believe John and his team at Scanifly are on to something with their approach, and his entrepreneur story is an intriguing one.
