Snippets from the Episode

  • "I think there's a perception that if you put it out, you're going to get tire kickers, you're going to get lowball bidders. But the nature of the platform [EnergyNet] and how the mechanics work, it just sifts them. The cream rises to the top." - Chris Atherton
  • "A fair, structured, competitive sale process is going to generate the best results consistently, whether there's a one-on-one sale or industry type and investment bank led sale or a government lease sale." - Chris Atherton
  • "When I say two-sided marketplace, I mean, like Zillow or even Airbnb or Uber's. We have buyers and sellers. Uber has riders and drivers and Airbnb has hosts and runners." -Chris Atherton
