When Erik and Lindsay Curren, now husband and wife, first met, they discovered that they shared an interest. Ever since each of them was a kid, they loved solar panels and were fascinated by clean energy. So, in 2010 when they founded the Curren Media Group, they wanted to use communications to help spread clean energy around America.
Erik Curren, CEO and Co-founder
Erik has gotten coverage for his clients and his own businesses in national news media outlets including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Orange County Register and Fast Company magazine.
After graduating from UC Irvine (Go ‘Eaters!), a stint with international PR and public affairs agency Hill and Knowlton in L.A. and San Francisco brought Erik into the fast-moving world of Silicon Valley tech startups.
After relocating to the East Coast to run the Washington, DC office of a PR agency representing advocacy groups for clean energy and the environment, Erik found himself in Virginia as a salesman for the state’s pioneering commercial solar developer, Secure Futures. There, Erik closed the deal for what would become, at the time, the state’s largest PV array.
Since then, Erik has consulted with solar companies and independent solar sales representatives across the US, from California to Massachusetts, and also internationally, from the UK to India and West Africa.
His latest book, The Solar Patriot: A Citizen’s Guide to Helping America Win Clean Energy Independence, came out in early 2018. His previous book The Solar Sales Leap, addressed to managers and salespeople at solar companies, was published in the fall of 2016.
