This year has been one of many challenges. Collectively we have all been affected by the pandemic and witnessed social and political unrest. In spite of all of the challenges, it's still important for us to remember and express all that we are thankful for.

At Folsom Labs, we're incredibly thankful for our customers who are the engine behind bringing clean, sustainable solar energy to our world. We'd like to also share with you what the Folsom Labs team members are thankful for this year:

"I am thankful for the kindness and resilience of our team. We've all pulled together to support each other while we transition to remote work, and while we all try to grapple with social (in)justice issues. Also, I'm impressed at how well our customers have transitioned to a world of social distancing and remote operations. Even though there is still a lot of uncertainty around how COVID will evolve from here, there is no doubt that the solar industry will survive and even thrive."

-Paul Grana, CRO

"I am thankful for my family, our health and that post-election we have a shot at getting federal support for policies to address climate change."

- Clint Talbert, VPE

"I am thankful for the health of my family, friends, and coworkers. I'm also thankful for at-home workouts, national and city parks, and my neighborhood takeout spots."

- Stephanie Cheng, Product Engineer

-Tiffany Harris, People Operations

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

Tips from SeatGeek's Anuja Chavan

When Anuja Chaven turns on a fan in her house in Jersey City, she can't help but think about how every piece of it works.
