As we close out 2010 we would like to thank all of you for a great, memorable year. We spent the past year building communities on Facebook, Twitter and here on this blog and we’re grateful for such a responsive, receptive audience to help us change the way the world is powered.
Back in April, we launched our Facebook page and Twitter account as the main channels to distribute solar information and communicate directly with SunPower customers and solar enthusiasts. Starting with 0 fans and followers, we’ve reached 4,275 fans on Facebook and 842 followers on Twitter in a mere eight months. Best of all, we’ve been blown away by how much information you have to share and your passion for solar. We started with a goal of creating informative, relevant conversations and to that end, you’ve made our jobs very easy. With your support, we’ve educated even more people on the key role of solar in our sustainable future. Most importantly, you have shown us how much you love your SunPower systems and given us crucial feedback on what you would love to see more of from SunPower.
We want to thank all of you for making this happen and we’ll continue to provide valuable information, updates on community installations, and of course, fun solar facts! Also, let us know what you would like to hear about more in 2011 from us by simply writing on our Facebook wall.
Finally, we’d like to thank those of you who joined us on Facebook to support and spread the word about the Make an Impact campaign. Because of your efforts, and on your behalf, we have donated $8,500 to the SunPower Foundation to support non-profit solar projects across the globe. Thank you to the 3,570 of you who liked SunPower on Facebook and made your impact in spreading solar.
From all of us at the SunPower social media team, have a happy holiday season and best wishes for the New Year!
