Coutan used the indispensable tool of social media to take awareness of the solar energy industry and its everyday application worldwide. His team has utilized popular social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube to reach homeowners and bring awareness to the need for renewable energy. Coutan says,” The need to reduce our carbon footprint is an imperative one, and the more methods like the use of solar panels that we can introduce into our everyday life, the better.”

Through boosting the exposure and sales of Apricot Solar, Coutan has helped to expand the reach of Eco-friendly energy, one solar panel at a time.
