In all cases, we balance recommended investment in renewable energy with conservative cost-payback analysis. We define an energy source as ‘renewable’ when it can be regenerated without combustion or pollution. Our practice specializes in three types:
Energy from the Sun-
Solar Thermal: Water captures the sun’s thermal energy very effectively and enables us to lower demand on a multitude of space heating and hot water applications. We use solar-heated water, domestic hot water, space heating, and absorption heat exchange systems.
Solar PV: For roof-mounted, thin film, or other photovoltaic power production, we size solar systems for a building’s needs based on utility bill analysis, reinforce roof structures, and integrate the DC power into a building’s existing electrical panel.
Solar Building Orientation: Window orientations bathe living areas in natural light with passive shading in summer.
