We just finished participating in the first (hopefully annual) Home Energy Expo in Springfield, Vermont. If you missed us, or didn’t get a chance to chat with us, you can call us for information or a free site evaluation. We’d love to talk to you!
Did you lose power during the last storm? We didn’t. As a matter of fact, the only reason we knew power was out in the neighborhood was our internet was down. And we had to start our neighbor’s generator for them (they were out of town). And we had to check on another neighbor’s house. Some of our neighbors were without electricity for more than 24 hours.
If you were without power, or frequently lose power for long periods of time, you might want to consider installing a solar back-up system. If designed and installed correctly, you may not even notice when the power goes out. And when you are not using your solar electricity to power your loads, you can send it back to the grid for a credit on your electric bill!
Call us if you would like to explore this option for your home.
Come visit us at the 2011 Home Energy Expo on March 19 at the River Valley Technical Center in Springfield, VT. The Expo will feature many different vendors (including us!) and educational displays, as well as several workshops on home weatherization, renewable energy systems, how to pay for energy systems/upgrades, making the right investments in lighting, heating, and appliances, etc. Look us up when you get there!
