Using Solar Energy Even If You Thought You Couldn't!

Date: Thursday, March 24, 2016 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Solarize Troy brings you new information on how you can use solar energy to decrease energy cost and be part of the climate change solution even if your home is not appropriate for solar panels. More than ever putting solar panels on your roof is one of the best investments a homeowner can make. But if for whatever reason your home isn’t suitable for on-site solar panels or if you’re a renter, there are now options with a recent change in New York State. Homeowners and renters can now own a share of an off-site solar panel installation and get nearly the same benefit on their power bills as if the panels were installed on-site. This informative presentation will cover the “shared solar” option and answer your questions about solar panels, on-site or otherwise. Presenter Kevin Carpenter, a solar energy enthusiast for many years and DEC employee, has built both passive solar and photovoltaic solutions for his home. He has been a key member of the Solarize Troy 2014 and 2015 campaigns.
