Everybody Solar Honored As 2012 Top-Rated NonProfit

New GreatNonprofits.org Award is Based on Positive Online Reviews for Nonprofit Everybody Solar.

Jan. 7, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – Everybody Solar announced today that it has been honored with a prestigious 2012 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user reviews about nonprofit organizations.


"We are excited to be named a Top-Rated 2012 Nonprofit," says Youness Scally, Executive Director, Everybody Solar. "We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including launching our first project to bring solar to nonprofit Rebuilding Together Peninsula. (http://www.everybodysolar.org/our-work/solar-projects/current-projects/49-solar-for-rebuilding-together-peninsula)"

The Top-Rated Nonprofit award was based on the large number of positive reviews that Everybody Solar received – reviews written by volunteers, donors and clients. People posted their personal experience with the nonprofit. For example, one person wrote,

"I've seen Everybody Solar take their noble goal (offset the cost of electricity to non-profit organizations by installing solar panels on their buildings) and put in the hard, humbling work to close in on delivering their first solar install. It's pretty awesome."

Being on the Top-Rated List comes at an important time of the year, as donors look for causes to support during the holiday season.

"We are gratified by Everybody Solar for its work," said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, "They deserve to be discovered by more donors and volunteers who are looking for a great nonprofit to support."

Being on the Top-Rated list gives donors and volunteers more confidence that this is a credible organization. The reviews by volunteers, clients and other donors show the on-the-ground results of this nonprofit. This award is a form of recognition by the community.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
