Andy is deeply concerned about climate change but is also concerned about cost of living pressures on American families. He advocates for solar energy and solar battery storage only to the extent that they make financial sense for homeowners. He is not affiliated with any particular solar company in the United States.

Andy Sendy is a well known and trusted figure with more than 12 years of experience in the solar industry globally.

He was a founder of what is now the largest solar panel installation companies in South Australia, has owned and operated solar projects in Japan and is Chairman of Solar Investments, a company that publishes several of the best home solar related consumer education websites in America.

Andy has sat across the kitchen table with thousands of people who have considered solar (and even installed a few systems himself). He has a unique insight into the information consumers need.

 

Andy can write freely about solar because he is not affiliated with any specific solar company in the USA and has no financial interest in whether you do or don’t buy a solar system for your home.
