Solar stimulates sustainable job creation

The solar industry is poised for tremendous job growth.  The ARRA stimulus money helped our firm offer a 3 week clean energy training course last year.  One of the graduates is now our top salesman.  Stimulus money has also flowed to efficiency in Virginia greatly increasing the demand for energy audits. This has led to the creation of three green jobs here at our firm in the last 12 months.

Voluntary Solar Bill Tabled

The Voluntary Solar Bill failed to make it out of the commerce and labor committee.  Dominion expressed concerns about the cost of administering the fund, even though 20% of collected monies would go toward the fund.  Also there were concerns from them about it affecting their energy share program.  I do not understand the correlation.  We have a year to work on finding acceptable language for this bill and I look forward to making it a more viable bill at next year’s general assembly.

Learn about our three step approach to energy efficiency and solar energy:

First, our clean energy consultants will determine the efficiency of your home or commercial building by providing a professional energy audit and recommending energy efficiency improvements. Our Energy Audits average about $400.

Second, we perform the efficiency upgrades we recommend and always offer a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. You’ll soon enjoy a home that’s comfortable and efficient. These upgrades typically average between $1500 and $2500.

Third, we provide a free Solar Site Assessment for anyone receiving an energy audit. Our clean energy consultants assess your location for solar shading and provide a thorough report of the expected solar production. We customize solar electricity systems, solar hot water systems, or both to fit your needs and our team does the install, takes care of the permits, and guides you through every incentive available to you.

Solar energy is clean, quiet, and safe and we guarantee our systems for 20 years. Act now to take advantage of Federal and State incentives that can pay for up to 50% of the cost. Continuum is unique because we help you become energy efficient first, and solar energy independent next.
