Solar conference a success!



We counted over 94 people that attended our Solar Conference Tuesday night at the Tivoli Village Hall. It was a great success. The room was packed. The photo above shows the room just before most everyone arrived. There were lots of questions and people felt that this conference “got the ball rolling” toward them getting solar.

hudsonsolarHudson Solar is a local, family-owned and operated company that has been in business for over 11 years. We focus exclusively on the design and installation of solar electric technology and have over 1,200 systems installed locally. We install systems for residential, commercial, and agricultural properties throughout New York, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

At Hudson Solar, we practice what we preach: Our Rhinebeck Headquarters was the first Net-Zero commercial establishment in New York, and our Albany office just went solar, as well. We also have the best team around: We were recently presented with the 2014 Times Union Top Workplace Award, which is an employee survey-based award.

solar cityIf you had the choice between paying more for dirty power or paying less for clean power, what would you do?

SolarCity, the nation’s largest full service solar provider, functioning in 15 states, has asked this question. Due to this, over 100,000 people have made the switch and now benefit from clean energy. If you were presented this option, what would you do? Because we believe that everyone should be able to afford clean energy, we developed a way where one can simply let us install the panels, for as little as no cost, and just pay for the power they produce. If you had the choice to control a portion of your energy requirements for the next 20 years and have clean power, which would you choose; clean energy or dirty energy?

nyserdaThe New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers innovative programs, technical expertise, and funding to help New Yorkers increase energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels through incentives and low-interest loans.

More information will be posted here and around the Village. Tell your friends. It should be a great event.
