  PASADENA, CA – A new specialized Yellow Pages service has popped up in California which is designed to help home owners locate and choose among a group of vetted vendors, manufacturers, contractors, roofers, lenders, and other service providers in the solar installation industry.   The site, called SolarYellowPages.com, is operated by Energy Advisor Hub, a technology start-up in the solar industry. The launch of the site was announced in a Business Wire press release where company executives Chris Gregory, Vice President of Sales and Amir Salahi, founder and CEO touted the services intended usefulness and purpose.   “When installing solar panels on a home, the three most important factors are the quality, dependability and cost effectiveness of the installer,” says Amir Salahi, founder and CEO of Energy Advisor Hub. “The Hub thoroughly vets every solar installer listed in the Solar Yellow Pages, so homeowners can rest assured they are selecting proven experts in the industry. With the help of our expert Advisors, homeowners now have an advocate who will shop around, create competition, price compare and even help compare financing solutions and coordinate the project. Our goal is to help homeowners go solar affordably and with confidence.”   The service is primarily an online search service which aims to connect homeowners in California with Solar energy experts and provides a simple means for consumers considering solar options to meet related providers already seeking new business. The site also intends to resolve what it states is limited choices which typically drive

YellowPages.com Originally Registered in 1996; Eventually Sold for $100 Million

  NEW YORK, NY – Imagine if you had the foresight, in 1996, to register the Internet domain name YellowPages.com.  That’s what a stock broker named Dane Madsen did when he found out that web addresses were able to registered by just about anyone with an idea and some cash on hand.   YellowPages.com was registered for roughly $130 and eventually sold for $100 million to the large telecom companies who run the old print phone books such as AT&T. The domain name was initially a website having nothing to do with the phone companies who had printed phone books, a process used for over 100 years before the Internet.   Today, according to our home page survey results, about 64 percent of Yellow Page users prefer online directories, over print books with about 35 percent saying they use the paper version. Over three hundred users have been surveyed in this poll, with each vote being cast by a unique IP address.   This number is also likely to grow with overall use of the Internet around the world. Other surveys have concluded that support for an “opt-in” method to receiving print books; verses being automatically subscribed are at 81% of respondents. But what would phone companies do if their circulation numbers plummeted?   These numbers suggest that online versions will continue to grow and be used more than conventional type Yellow Pages, and that Madsen’s purchase of the YellowPages.com web address just might have been one of the greatest

Honored projects include large wastewater infrastructure projects to small decentralized and agriculture projects.   “The Clean Water State Revolving Fund plays an integral role in advancing the President’s infrastructure agenda, providing communities with low-interest loans so that they can modernize aging infrastructure, create good jobs, and better protect public health and the environment,” said EPA Office of Water Assistant Administrator Dave Ross. “The scale and complexity of the 2018 PISCES recognized projects represent the determination, coordination, and creativity our partners put forth to achieve their water quality goals.”    “The Clean Water State Revolving Fund is an extremely important source of funding to ensure communities in the southeast have access to clean, safe drinking water and the infrastructure necessary to support local needs,” said EPA Region 4 Administrator Trey Glenn.   The Lincoln County Sanitation District constructed a sanitary sewage system for 535 residential and 50 commercial customers that previously did not have sewer service. The new collection system was a critical upgrade because it replaced 223 failing septic tanks, 101 straight pipes, and two package treatment plants that previously discharged raw sewage. The new conveyance system was made possible through the collaboration of many supporting partners including the Kentucky Infrastructure Authority CWSR,
