Puget Sound Solar formed a team to compete with 1,880 other teams in the Bike Month Challenge, Cascade Bicycle Club's annual fun, free online trip-tracking contest.

Joining the effort were Kristel Wolf, Chris Barnes, Adam Lee, David Lazerwitz, Nick Wolf, Chris Johanning, Josh Cubbin, Julie Wilcox, Will Sumner, Chi Moscou-Jackson, Paul Sim, Pete Vretos, Leo Frisch, and Jeremy Smithson. The object was to ride as much as possible during the month of May. 

Although Jeremy was designated team captain, the "real" captain was Kristel Wolf, who proposed that we join the challenge, and then did a fair amount of motivating, even creating a 'mini challenge' to see who improved the most in the latter half of the month.

Started Puget Sound Solar in 2001 with 30 years of construction contracting experience, and a desire to turn Seattle on to solar energy. Achieving NABCEP certification in 2004, Jeremy believes that our customers often follow a path similar to the one he took, starting out with solar daydreaming, then progressing to education on the subject, and eventually leading to action. In addition to leading the company he also does some teaching and speaking engagements about various aspects of solar energy, and experiments relentlessly with various solar, energy efficiency, and electric vehicle projects.
