Solar Power International & Energy Storage International
Solar Roots - The Pioneers of PV is the true story of how a small group of backwoods engineers and business hippies brought solar photovoltaic technology down from space into homes around the world, delivering "solar power to the people”. Filmmakers Jeff Spies and Jason Vetterli spent two years traveling the country interviewing over 50 pioneers of the solar photovoltaic industry in the making of this educational, funny and touching film. The film spans from the early scientific PV discoveries in the 1800’s to the development of the Bell Silicon Solar Cell in the 1950's, the space race of the 60's, and the debut of terrestrial PV in the 70s before focusing on the colorful group of men and women who gave birth to the PV home power movement in the early 80's, which eventually grew to define the modern day solar industry.
