I contacted several small and large contractors, all with experience in solar power installations. I chose Cantiague Electric because their response was prompt, frank and informative.
After 74 days of flawless operation I’m confident that my system will generate as much as or more electricity than Mike estimated, providing about three-quarters of the electricity we consume. With LIPA rebates and tax credits our project will pay for itself in five to six years.
In terms of avoiding the pollution of fossil fuels, we have already offset the equivalent of 18 trees. And, we’ve turned our rather nondescript cape into the coolest house in our neighborhood.
