Today on the podcast we chat with local innovator Dustin Walker, Founder of Revision2. This solo entrepreneur has created a working prototype of a tubular, aerodynamic solar panel that can be mounted directly onto utility poles. The prototype is sixteen feet long and contains 148 solar cells.


On the podcast today we chat about:

·      Residential, commercial, and utility scale solar panel use in Minnesota.

·      The focus of Revision2 on clean energy, clean living, and emerging industry opportunities.

·      How becoming a parent and a challenge from his 7-year-old son launched Dustin’s journey into clean energy innovation.

·      Aim of the startup to source manufacturing and supply chain and gain traction with local utility companies.

·      Dustin’s use of the Minnesota Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for business advice and mentorship.

·      His goal to build out the team and land funding in order to obtain some purchase orders of the solar panel over the next year.
