Gary Gerber, CEO and founder of Sun Light and Power in Berkeley, California, has been working in the renewable energy field for 30 years. He successfully steered his solar design and installation company through the lean years when the country all but abandoned solar energy to the more recent second solar boom times. His company is thriving well enough to have been named one of the top 100 fastest-growing companies in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Times in 2004, 2005, and 2006, and he expects it to be on the list again in 2007.  With over 40 employees, Sun Light and Power (SLP) is at once a pioneer and an expert in the field of solar design and installation. “I am a general contractor involved in sustainability, and I’ve been traveling down the road of green construction for over ten years, with a keen interest in the bigger picture of energy,” says Gerber.
