The following entry was written in early 2018. As of today the worst case scenario is not as hypothetical as it once seemed. For those firms that grew their renewable revenue over the last two years there may be a
cushion to the fall. For those that haven’t it’s never too late.
The economy is strong, construction cranes dot the landscape and plans are in place for future expansion by businesses nationwide. Many firms are either planning to purchase new equipment or retrofit what’s in place. Times are good in the business community. Installers and contractors are hustling to get as much of this business as possible. For many firms the biggest challenge is staffing to support this activity. For those of us who have been around for awhile, we’ve seen it before. We want to believe this cycle will last forever. We know it won’t. It’s just a matter of time before things slow down, or in worst case come to a halt.
