SOLAR ENERGY

Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source on earth.  Why not use it.  Advances in technology in generating electricity and heating water have made solar energy effective with few moving parts.

  • Grid tied solar electric (photovoltaic) systems have two basic components: solar modules and inverters.  There are no moving parts.  Solar modules can be roof or ground mounted depending on shade, land availability, roof orientation and pitch.  The first step in evaluating your site includes an audit of your electric usage and discussions with you on options for mounting.  From there a quote with estimates of potential rebates and NYSERDA incentives can be prepared to help you decide if solar is right for you.  Financing the construction is often desired, so we can provide you with a variety of options.

  • Off Grid systems are gaining in popularity, and provide complete energy independence from the grid.  Significant advantages in battery technology have made off grid systems extremely reliable and affordable.  Fourth Coast has provided small off grid systems for remote camps and outbuildings, remote monitoring systems, as well as large systems for year round living.  Have a sign you would like to illuminate or a remote livestock watering location, off grid solar could be right for your application.  Create your own “micro grid”.  Look bewildered when your neighbors complain about the power outage last night!

  • Hot Water heated with solar energy was the first application of utilizing solar energy in our homes.  High efficiency flat plat and evacuated tube collectors can provide nearly 100% of your hot water needs in the summer, ideal for summer homes and cottages.  And yes, with evacuated tube technology, a significant amount of hot water can be created in the winter months, reducing your need for traditional hot water heating methods.
