A Peek Behind The Iron Curtain

Story behind founder of Krumpers Solar Solutions, Diana Livshits. Former Russian translator for Nortel now uses communication skills to sell solar technology. Shocked at the heating bill for her older house, she began searching for inexpensive solutions and came across a Toronto company that offered climate-control blinds that heat the house in winter with reflected solar heat - and reverse the process in the summer. Using her communication skills from her earlier work, she soon began translating the power of solar energy into marketable terms for new customers.
