Renewable Energy

  • Install photo-voltaic panels. South-facing solar energy modules produce more energy annually, but west-facing modules can take better advantage of time-of-use rates.
  • Install (or pre-plumb) for a solar water heating system. These systems use solar collectors and a water storage tank to provide hot water for domestic use and/or space heating.
  • Take advantage of tax credits and state and local incentives for renewable energy systems. See the Green Building Resources page for current information.
