Solar Energy for Vermont
“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
Thomas Edison, 1931
If Edison were alive today, he’d be more than pleased with the progress of the solar energy industry. The technology has matured, and society is embracing this renewable form of energy. In a way, Edison’s enthusiastic statement has become a prediction: it is the diminishing supply of fossil fuels coupled with the negative environmental impact of their use that is punctuating solar’s value and importance as an energy source.
Powering your home or business with solar electricity is a feasible choice for anyone hoping to reduce energy costs. Electric rates are expected to double in the next 10 years, and installing a solar electric system essentially fixes the price of power at the cost of investment. Going solar safeguards your home or business from the rising cost of energy.
For those interested in off-grid power, a solar electric system is a valuable cornerstone for the self-sufficient lifestyle. Having no electric bill and knowing where your power comes from is very satisfying!
Solar power reliably fulfills energy needs, whether it is an off-grid or a grid-tie system. With state and federal renewable energy incentives off-setting a significant portion of the cost of a solar system, generating your own power is an obtainable goal.

A satisifed customer writes:
“We hired Rich to install a large solar array on a renovated, century-old dairy barn housing our holistic retreat center in Stannard. We are hooked up to the grid and wanted to make our center and homestead more sustainable by generating some of our own electricity.
Rich and his crew were excellent to work with. The work they did was very professional, timely, and thorough. Rich maintains a wonderfully friendly manner and answered all of our questions, taking time to go over the system details with us several times before and after the installation. Rich did several site visits and worked with us on several different proposals and price quotes until we came up with one that best suited our needs and our budget.
To install the panels, Rich’s crew was up on the roof line of our barn, a good 40’ up. They communicated with each other clearly and handled a very challenging situation with expertise. Rich’s leadership and presence was clear and apparent, without ever being overbearing. I have hired numerous work crews to develop our center and have never seen one that worked together so well and maintained such positive energy throughout the project.
I would highly recommend Rich and his crew to anyone who wants to install a solar electric system.”
