Richmond BySolar is a leader in bringing renewable energy
The question is not should we transition to renewable energy — fossil fuels, after all are a finite resource and will not last forever. The more accurate question is: when.
The sun will last forever! It's a good investment.
Solar Energy Technologies
Most of us use natural gas, oil or propane and can benefit by moving some of use off those fuels to solar and eliminate the spiraling cost of those fuels and their contributions to carbon in our atmosphere.. Our goal is to reduce your utility cost and carbon by 50%.
One of our generations’ challenges is sustainability, “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
For every kWh of electric you use Dominion Power generates 2.02 Lbs of CO2 from the coal they burn for you. This is 33,325 lbs per year for the average Virginia household which stays in the atmosphere for thousands of years.
Building New Homes that are Ready for Solar Energy Systems
Unlike many other states in the country (see
map), in Virginia were just starting down the road to using renewable energy. Many groups are working with
our legislative representatives to catch up with the many
other states that already have sucessfull renewable energy
We are prepared to help those Virginians who want to use renewable energy in their business and homes. And we are helping research to get more energy out of our solar systems. We were the first SWaM certified Solar company in Virginia. We are members of the Solar Energy Society. We currently have over a dozen certificates in site assement, solar thermal, photovoltaic, radiant heating and instruction. We have experience in solar since 1984.
The latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a scientific body under the auspices of the United Nations, adds yet more urgency. It is time to wean ourselves off fossil fuels. It is time to match our policies and our actions to what science is telling us. It is already too late to stop climate change: climate change is happening. But it is not too late to mitigate climate change, and to address its impacts. We all need to reduce our carbon footprint.
Solar Thermal Applications
We initially concentrated on solar thermal (hot water). Solar thermal can heat your domestic hot water and do space heating. Gradually as the cost of solar PV came down and new technologies and material arrived we have seen it become popular too, both solars complement each other.
More than 1.5 million homes and businesses in the US have solar water heating. Surveys indicate that more than 94% of these customers consider the systems a good investment.
