Solar is constantly gaining in popularity and seems to be one of the most talked about forms of energy efficiency. There are also more grant and funding opportunities out there then other forms of green energy, although there is also more competition for it, making it harder to get.
We have not until now been installers of solar, but we have always been advocates. Just recently we have become liscensed distributors and installers of both solar thermal and photovoltaic. We are working with Schuco Solar who offer great products and we can be proud to promote.
Some information about Schuco Products:
Schüco guarantees standards of the highest level in industrial and commercial construction. They are a market leader in the solar industry, providing solar energy systems worldwide. Schüco’s range of photovoltaic and solar thermal products are perfect solutions for commercial and industrial buildings as well as government facilities. The benefits include: high energy efficiency and improved energy balances, reduction in CO² emissions, decreasing dependency on energy markets, plus high value-added potential and a flexible installation system that includes all necessary components.
Schüco is a complete provider of photovoltaic solutions, which includes crystalline modules, thin-film technology and customized modules. Schüco is the only system supplier today, who is able to offer a PV module performance warranty based on the nominal power of the panels. In addition, the Schüco 12 / 25 years power warranty is an industry keader and exceeds power-production period. This guarantees a significant surplus in performance and kWh production over the entire warranty period.
Schüco solar thermal systems minimize the impact on the environment and reduce energy consumption for heating and hot water provision. Schüco’s solar thermal portfolio includes all the components needed in the best quality from one source. Different mounting systems and individual building integration enable thermal collectors to be integrated harmoniously into every building.
As far as funding goes, there is only $1,330,740 left from the CT Clean Energy Program. It is important to put in application right now for these funds. We can only hope after they are used up they allocate more this year or at least next year. There are some federal incentives and tax rebates that are still available for solar.
