PVT Solar has officially changed its name to EchoFirst Inc. The company, based in Fremont, Calif., says the name change more accurately reflects its core business: the design, manufacture, marketing, distribution and deployment of its patented Echo solar system.
The Echo system supplements conventional solar electric PV panels with a solar thermal technology that captures the heat from the PV panels, according to the company.
EchoFirst also announced the appointment of Surinder Brar, chief strategist of the worldwide partner organization at Cisco Systems, to the company's advisory board.
