Colin Rusch

so Thanks building lot to what the you speak you're seems on now? It opportunity and factors much, there's capacity. like an right key growth gating awful guys. Could of

down wondering at I'm point? you what's So slowing this

Lynn Jurich

Well, we think we're going pretty fast.

the there's think business – the I one, we're physical a of and that. just reality

not one that have is business as that think well. to of channel to can we concern really partner I continue the be the even expand a – ways

think a can operating under I pretty we about our and to that's also building sales way force increase partner and So have we're reach is unique market. And the the we're penetrated. us still some efficiencies where that infrastructure business own and get that's there market scale avenues and really

So that's there. strategy been you're our right. But

many years year, said can the for we've industry this annual decade compounded a without acceleration needing for more why And to with reaching an with and this unit is penetration. reasonable there's I've home the more growth electrification the no deliver value think that and XX% reason I that growth a faster. And that electricity a is rate in and two discussed times particularly the much shouldn't be too. increasing

but footprint. capacity additional of the home, the and also just So wallet it's share units just it's not the only energy

not sustainably think to remember that, course there's is on opportunities I this have and you business. still of So physical a a those dimensions software It's and both business.

Colin Rusch

you potential scale are understood. and assets? you internal with utilities No, the again And partners really utility around Yes. to around that guys on And additional color at resiliency can thanks targets that's as evolving for deployment for the ROE distributed looking the how for speak look partnering partners.
