Now that innovation and information have gone global, big oil and big government won’t be able to stifle the coming of the Solar Age.

What started as Solar Age morphed into Progressive Builder morphed into Custom Builder. It wasn’t simply changes in ownership that led the edtiorial drift from renewable energy to homes for the most affluent. It was politics and economics.
