Happy Thursday and welcome to the pvMB. Today we’ll be looking at SMUD joining the EIM (those words may mean nothing to you now but will soon), a new New Jersey brownfield project (not a Futurama joke), a new solar powered anti-theft backpack (with a built-in boombox model) and everything else you need to tackle the solar industry today.
