Have you heard that solar is too expensive? In addition to flexible financing options and incentives in Vermont and New York, solar lowers electricity bills, increases property values, and sells homes 17% faster.
Solar pays for itself. All together, this makes it one of the easiest and highest ROI home improvement projects you’ll ever do.

Think you know solar? Think again.
To find out whether solar is right for you, you need the facts. Things might be different from when you last checked it out. In recent years, solar technology has improved. Panels are now more powerful and affordable. Some of our panels are even made right here in the USA. And we’ve streamlined our processes, passing the savings along to you.
In addition, we’ve been creating brand new clean energy solutions like the Solar Canopy (available in Vermont) and developing more off-site community solar arrays in the Hudson Valley. So there are more options than ever.
Plus, financing is more accessible, as we’ve brought on another lending partner, and incentives for solar are still available in both Vermont and New York.
If you checked solar out in the past and it didn’t work out, it might be time to look again.
There have been big changes in solar over the last few years, which means there’s a lot of wrong information out there. So we’re here to set the record straight about what kind of roofs we can install on, which utilities are open, and whether you might qualify for financing after all. Here are the top ten myths we encounter in solar, explained.
There are a lot of advantages to building a modern, efficient, and “smart” home. Pairing efficient building design with the latest technology, like heat pumps, energy efficient appliances, solar, and battery storage can reduce your energy bill significantly, or (if you opt for solar) eliminate it entirely. Here’s our guide to building a house with solar.
Climate change isn’t just about ice caps and polar bears. It’s both local and global; we see its effects in our backyards, and we hear about more wide-reaching impacts on human health, the environment, and the economy every day. According to a 2018 US government report, average temperatures in the Northeast will rise faster than any other region in the lower 48 states. Here are the top ten local climate impacts as we see them.
Hot, hot heat is hard on electronics in the summer, so the cooler days and months provide more efficient solar production. So, those hot blue sky summer days? Your solar system will be cranking, but you won’t see it performing at its max power level. Learn more about how temperature affects production.
Pursuing a brighter future
Today in the Northeast, we’re experiencing extreme temperatures and more intense storms. In the coming years, we’ll begin to feel the ripple-effects of bigger problems like rising sea levels, drought, and flooding around the world.
The good news is it’s not all doom and gloom — positive change is happening. Universities and corporations are divesting from fossil fuels, coal companies are going out of business, and electric vehicles will soon take over the market.
And there are so many ways you as an individual can help in the fight against climate change; going solar at your home or business is just one. We can all be part of the solution — it’s just a matter of being empowered to take action.
When knowledge is shared, so is power. Let’s build a brighter future together.
