Poll: What’s The Most Disruptive Cleantech Model?

September 22nd, 2013 by

I recently had a fun idea for a poll. Hope you will think so, too. Cleantech as a whole is beginning to disrupt (in a good way) a handful of not-so-clean industries. This includes the coal industry, the nuclear industry, the oil industry, the gasmobile industry, and even the banking industry. In a very broad sense, the question is, which of the below do you consider to be the most disruptive cleantech model?

A) 3rd-party solar (e.g., solar leasing)
B) Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs)
C) Crowdfunding solar and wind projects
D) Model S + X + E (yep, this is a creative use of the term “cleantech model”)

Here’s the poll for voting:

Zach is tryin' to help society help itself (and other species) with the power of the word. He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor, but he's also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession and Solar Love. Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. He has presented about cleantech at conferences in India, the UAE, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, and Canada. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB — after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in. But he offers no professional investment advice and would rather not be responsible for you losing money, so don't jump to conclusions.
