Verengo Solar Featured on Torrance CitiCABLE's "Common Cents"

TORRANCE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Verengo Solar, the nation's #1 ranked residential solar specialist, is currently featured on Torrance CitiCABLE's business program Common Cents. Hosted by Renee Eng, the show throws a spotlight on local businesses that contribute to the economy and community.

Torrance-based Verengo was recognized last month in Solar Power World magazine's Top 100 Contractors List and ranked #1 among the nation's solar contractors who work only in the residential market.

Eng spoke at length with Verengo Solar President and Co-Founder Ken Button and Vice President of Sales Lloyd Sargeant about Verengo Solar's success and local job creation, with 400 new hires added in 2012 alone.

"Solar is this amazing, exciting industry -- really just starting to take off," said Button. There are over 4 million single family homes in Southern California, and only about 150,000 of them have solar power. "The opportunity is huge, and this is just in Southern California! We're just starting to scratch the surface."

"It's great to be in an industry that's growing. In this economy there aren't many," added Sargeant.

"It is our corporate vision to change the way America thinks about solar." Button said. "Right now we are right in the middle of seeing this happen."

Asked about the process involved in going solar with Verengo, Sargeant replied, "You can call our toll-free number 858-529-1833 or visit www.Verengosolar.com, and you will talk to a person that will pre-qualify you. You'll be asked questions about your home, such as does your house point in the right direction, what's the pitch of the roof, and how much electricity you use monthly. These are all factors used to design a tailored system."

Noting that ideal solar candidates typically have a monthly bill of $125 or higher, Button stated, "If we can't save you money, we won't take your business.

"CEO Randy Bishop and I founded the company in 2008, and for us it was a business opportunity that has all the benefits of helping people save money, helping our environment, and helping our energy independence. It's all about the chance to do good and do well," Button told Common Cents.

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT).

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
The excitement around the possibilities enabled by Big Data is being tempered by the daunting task of feeding the analytics engines with high quality data on a continuous basis. As the once distinct fields of data integration and data management increasingly converge, cloud-based data solutions providers have emerged that can buffer your organization from the complexities of this continuous data cleansing and management so that you’re free to focus on the end goal: actionable insight.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products.
