After researching the incentives at the federal, state, utility, and local levels, I will contact a local installer/distributor for a solar panel installation consultation on my house.

    Today I rebuilt a deck using reclaimed wood.  This saves the landfill of wood and it saves me on cost, a win win!  Although this is not related to a specific challenge it still works!

    I chose to become a provider of Solar Energy because I really believe in the technology.  I meet with families all over long island to explain the benefits.
    Did you know that both the Federal and State governments provide incentives to Go Solar?  This pays for almost half the cost of solar energy.  This along with harvesting the energy from the sun helps all of us become more Eco friendly!

      I have had solar panels for 4 years and pay a $14.00 a month just for the ability to hook up to the grid.  I love my solar panels.

    Solar energy was first discovered in 700 BC and was used to start fire.  The first Photovoltaic cell was made in 1954. Today families are using solar energy to reduce their carbon footprint as well as save money from the high cost of electrical generation (the grid's yearly rising costs).
