As we are going to spill the beans out so that you will know who he is and why he is so valuable for mankind.

Richard Nelson is the CTO of PyraPOD Global Inc, holder of 6 patents on SolaRoof technologies. Over the past 20 years he has been active in educating, mobilizing and supporting early doers of SolaRoof projects under the Creative Commons licenses, which means he gives an open source offer to all DIYers to use his technologies right away. Richard lives happily with his wife Jeraldine and is now working on several historic patent pending innovations with PyraPOD Global.
