Solar Demand Increases as Prices drop
Solar photovoltaics (PV) are the fastest growing source of energy in the world; the industry has experienced an average annual growth rate of 30% for the past 20 years and a remarkable 80% since 2006. Building on humble origins providing power in the remote corners of the world, solar PV has evolved to become a significant source of renewable distributed generation, being found on rooftops and open fields throughout Europe, North America and Asia
The chart above shows the 25-year returns for an investment in solar whether you choose to purchase a system with cash or pay over time with a loan or lease. As you can see, the purchase option leads to the highest dollar-amount returns over time, but look a little closer. Taking a Home Equity Loan or Line of Credit (HELOC—the orange bars) and paying for the system over time means you’ll actually spend less of your own money over time, while reaping a big financial benefit in year 1.</p>[/vc_column_text]Tweet[/vc_column][/vc_row]
The Ductless Mini-Split system is compact, quiet and provides unmatched comfort in any room. The outdoor compressor section is powered by a twin rotary compressor with GREE’s DC Inverter technology. This inverter technology with eco-friendly R-410a refrigerant to saves you energy, reduces outdoor noise and keeps room temperature steady by eliminating the constant starts and stops of conventional air conditioning systems. The indoor section is designed to be a comfortable fit in virtually any living space. A Universal Piping Assembly/line-set (sold separately) is required for installation – be sure to select the appropriate size.
So how does it work? The standby generator system constantly monitors utility power, when a power outage occurs the generator system automatically turns on. Our system allows you to manage and prioritize the use of up to 8 high wattage appliances. It’s the smart way to direct backup power anywhere in your house, without the need for a large, expensive standby generator. When utility power returns, the back up generators transfer switch will shift your home back to utility power without you having to lift a finger. Because GE generators are smart, sophisticated, and largely automated, you are protected from the elements as your home standby system does the work.

Farmers and Growers boast Solar is a Savior!
Professionals in the agriculture industry, unlike other business have a unique set of circumstances. Farming and growing crops is an energy intense business. A vast majority of your cost are going to electricity, fuel, fertilizer, feed and chemicals. Even with a very slight increase in either of these costs, can have a detrimental effect. We have a solution. Call us today at 513-351-9463
Putting the Sun to Work on the Farm
Solar energy can be used in agriculture in a number of ways, saving money, increasing self-reliance, and reducing pollution.
Sunlight can also generate electricity. Photovoltaic (PV) panels are often a cheaper option than new electric lines for providing power to remote locations. And because they require no fuel and have no moving parts, they are more convenient to operate and maintain than diesel or gasoline generators. In some areas, the distance from a power source at which PV becomes more economical than new transformers and electric lines is surprisingly short—often as little as 50 feet.
Our Solar Water Pumps can lift water from depths exceeding 600 Feet (183 meters) at up to 5 gallons (19 Liters) per minute. You will be surprised by the performance of such a small system. In a 10-hour sunny day, our system can lift 3000 gallons (11,356 Liters). That’s enough water to supply 90 families or 100 head of cattle, or 120 Fruit trees! Our Storage tanks and tower sizes to support our systems varies from 100 gallons (378.5 Liters) to 2,000,000 gallons (7,600 Cubic Meters).
