The PV Solar Report was founded to help people keep up with the fast moving solar industry. Everyday hundreds of solar articles are written, newsletters are sent, blogs are updated, press releases are issued, legislation is proposed, and industry dynamics change and most solar professionals find it challenging to stay on top of it all and perform at their highest levels.We wanted to create a simple and easy way for solar sales people, installers, operations folks, finance specialists, integrator owners, customers, and other interested parties to stay on top of everything happening without having to spend hours and hours a day searching and reading it, then wasting time by reading unimportant information.Many large firms have competitive research departments that monitor the solar landscape, keep track of relevant news, and update key people on important data or developments, but that can cost thousands of dollars a month. We wanted you to have that same type of information, and the PV Solar Report was born.

Dhanur is passionate about renewable energy and clean technology. Before joining PV Solar Report, Dhanur worked in various business development roles at a Fortune 100 in Shanghai and Singapore, a startup in Bogota and a nonprofit in Mumbai. Most recently, he led cross-border sales and business development between China and India at the world’s largest logistics company. His work as logistics expert to some of the world’s largest solar panel manufacturers inspired a transition into the renewable energy industry. The transition began with an MBA focused on energy economics, technology and policy from the Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University. After an internship with DuPont’s energy consulting group and advisory work with a combined heat and power systems manufacturer in New York, Dhanur relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area (where, of course, the action is).
