A very worthwhile class for anyone interested in a comprehensive perspective of the exciting and rapidly evolving solar + storage market in the US. Wes has a firm grasp on the large variety of information on this subject matter and a great communication style for online learning. I really enjoyed this class.

– Stephen Kane

Very good overview of the current state of storage technology and economics.

– Bill Stewart, SolarCraft

I appreciated the approach Wes took with a holistic view of advanced solar + storage. He took wide-ranging and toothy topics and made them accessible with humour and analogy. He was effective in tying together the common storage components from the smallest off-grid cabin to utility-scale grid support.

– Sam Mason, Sustainable Energy Developments

Wes covers a variety of current, historical and potential future storage applications. Wes’s background and experience is very valuable and apparent in the videos. In addition, love the discussion board – listening to other students for real world feedback on products, applications and experience.

– Joe Callahan, founder, energisimple

Heatspring is a huge resource for the energy storage business. Wes Kennedy is spot on with his resources.

Heatspring’s [Comprehensive] Solar and Storage on-line was a great way for me to gather a tremendous amount of information about battery storage. We learned about equipment, design, NEC code, utility and finances. It gave me just the boost I needed to support my understanding of utility battery storage moving forward.
