About the Author

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.

    < ✜✱✪✪✲✜ +cleantechnica +********….. < Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8 months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $177 per hour. I work through this link,

    You know I actually appreciate these “dumps” Zach. Many of the links I would have missed. Thanks.

    • Awesome to hear. 😀

      I used to think they weren’t that well received, since I could see that individual articles didn’t get a lot of clicks. But I realized this year that these link drops actually get a lot of views quite often, so I figure people find them useful and just selectively follow their own interests with them.

      I try to believe that going through hundreds of stories a day can be put to maximum good use via these extra roundups. 😀
