Shilling for Solar

Former (and perhaps future) gubernatorial candidate Steve Westly is getting his love on with Gavin's solar program — by plugging his own company. The eBay founder turned VC recently pulled his campaign mailing list out of the old attic trunk to gush about his own installation: "We used a firm called Akeena Solar. ... If you’ve ever thought of putting solar on your home — there has never been a better time." Neglected to mention: he's an Akeena investor. Shameless shilling, or heart of green? [Valleywag]
