ABC Home and Real Goods Solar Systems
We recently came across some info on home solar systems for NY and NJ homes from ABC Home and Real Goods (a subsidiary of Gaiam) and thought some of you folks might find it interesting.
Since I could not possibly say it better than their web site does (I am not, after all, a highly paid NYC copywriter), I have copied and pasted from the ABC Home site:
"In support of a more sustainable energy future for our country and planet, and in its commitment to help its customers enhance how their homes reflect their values, ABC Home is pleased to have created ABC Solar, which operates as ABC Real Goods Solar, to bring full service solar system installation to New York and New Jersey. In a few months, we hope to be able to support the solar aspirations of our Connecticut customers.
ABC Real Goods Solar will arrange for the optimal solar system for your home or business to be designed and installed. We will guide you through every aspect of installation - from selecting the right system for your electric needs to arranging for and overseeing the installation and activation of your new solar system. We collect the rebate directly from your state program, so you only need to pay ABC Real Goods Solar for your portion of the cost. Our thorough process ensures your complete satisfaction while helping you reduce your electric bill and promote a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable energy future for generations to come."
The link below is to the web site, which is pretty comprehensive and includes "typical" $$ savings, case studies, techie info, etc.
I would be interested in your opinions on these systems, as we are seriously considering putting one in the home we are going to build in the spring.
