SepiSolar Confidential: Meet Josh Weiner Through this Suncast Interview Series

June 21, 2018 1

If you’ve never sat down and had a drink with SepiSolar’s CEO Josh Weiner to get to know him, here’s the next best thing: Listen to his 3-Part Suncast podcast interview with host Nico Johnson.

Nico’s intimate weekly podcast has interviewed solar luminaries such as Jigar Shah, Dan Shugar, and Stephen Lacey, so Josh was honored to be invited to be another guest on Nico’s show.

Josh and Nico didn’t exactly have a beer together, but they talked as if they did. They not only discussed solar and energy storage best design practices, but also about the influences in Josh’s life growing up and his vision for the solar+storage future. They talked so long that Nico had to break up the interview into three parts.

All three Suncast episodes are embedded below. You can also subscribe to Suncast on ItunesStitcher, or your favorite streaming service.

Here’s a rundown of what Josh and Nico discussed:
