TSS did a fine job with quoting size of job, # of solar panels, revising the plan with my input after heating and a/c modifications in my home were made.
They were also very helpful In my accessing the TVA website to take care of necessary forms. I”m a person who learns visually and having a list of steps written out would have made for better advise for me. The process was very different than what I”m used to. I’m up and running for 3 days now and it”s fun watching the meter turn backwards. I’m looking forward to my next energy bill!

Companies on the list are grouped by specific service (construction firms, developers, electrical subcontractors, EPCs, rooftop contractors, solar hot water installers), markets (commercial, off-grid, residential, utility) and states by 2014 installed capacity.

TSS delivered in every way. On time. On budget. And in the years since installation, the system has been on projected generation month after month. What I appreciate most is there willingness to do whatever it takes to ensure the success of out 50kW system and their extra effort to bridge the knowledge gap.

SAVING MONEY MAKES SENSE

The price of U.S. solar power has dropped a whopping 70 percent since 2009, even as panels become more efficient.  Now is the time to act on taking control of your electric bill before rates go up again!

Recently a Washington Post  article by Chris Mooney, “Wind and solar keep getting cheaper and cheaper” mentioned a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance;

The report, from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, examined the “levelized cost of electricity” around the world in the second half of 2015 — a metric that seeks to take a comprehensive look at costs including capital expenditures, interest rates and operating costs. It’s an approach that is able to “put technologies on a level playing field and enable that comparison, which is valuable,” says Seb Henbest, head of Europe, Middle East, and Africa analysis for Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

The report was based on analysis of some 55,000 projects around the world, says Henbest. And it found that globally, onshore wind now on average costs $83 per megawatt-hour of electricity ($2 cheaper than in the first half of the year), and thin film solar photovoltaics costs $122 per megawatt-hour — a drop of $7 in just half a year.

 

 

By getting a custom-designed system that is tailored specifically for your home or business ensures your carbon footprint is reduced or eliminated.  There is no better time to act and save! BTW there a 30% Federal Tax Credit too, but this is set to expire December 2016.

TIPS FOR A GREENER LIFESTYLE, MAKE YOUR OWN CLEANING PRODUCTS!

Laundry

When making the initial switch from a detergent to a soap laundry cleaner, wash items once with washing soda only. This will eliminate detergent residues that might otherwise react with soap to cause a yellowing of fabrics.

Laundry Soap

Add 1/3 cup washing soda (sodium carbonate) to water as machine is filling. Add clothes. Add 1 ½ cups of soap. If the water is hard, add another ¼ cup soda or ¼ cup vinegar during the first rinse.
Add 1/3 cup washing soda to water before placing clothes in machine and substitute soap flakes or powder for detergent. Add ½ cup borax for additional cleaning power.

Pre-soak

Soak heavily soiled items in warm water with ½ cup washing soda for 30 minutes. Rub soiled areas with liquid soap.

Fabric Softener

Add 1 cup vinegar or ¼ cup baking soda during final rinse. To reduce static cling in tumble-dried synthetics, dampen hands when folding or line dry instead.

Spray Starch

Dissolve 2 Tbsp. cornstarch in 1 pint cold water in a spray bottle. Shake before each use. For delicate fabrics, dissolve 1 package unflavored gelatin to 2 cups of hot water. Dip a corner of the fabric into the solution to test; if fabric becomes sticky when dry, add more water.

Dry Cleaning

Buy items you can wash or clean on your own. Most dry cleaning solvents, such as perchloroethylene are toxic. If you must dry clean, air clothing out thoroughly before bringing indoors. Many garments whose labels specify “dry clean only” can be safely hand-washed using mild soap.
