Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
(PRWEB) November 17, 2010 -- Local solar panel installation company Arosa Solar installs state of the art system on learning institution’s roof to help cut costs and generate much needed power.
Bnos Bais Yaakov has gone solar. The 25,000 square foot girls' high school building (located on Oberlin Avenue in Lakewood, New Jersey) is currently in the midst of installing a massive solar system on their roof, and expects the investment to save the school approximately $35,000 annually. The school was able to purchase the system with the help of government incentives.
“Arosa Solar is excited about this installation” said Shimmy Tessler, speaking on behalf of the company. “The installation is replacing a huge amount of the energy for which Bnos Bais Yaakov depended on and paid the utility company,” he commented.
The investment pays off both immediately and down the road; not only does Bnos Bais Yaakov benefit instantly from the electricity produced but the installation will pay for itself in three years, allowing profit to be made as well through Solar Renewable Energy Credits earned by every megawatt of power generated.
Other schools in town are looking to switch to solar energy as well. This is in step with the attitude towards solar power across the state of New Jersey - currently, the small East coast state runs second only to California when it comes to the solar market.
“We are in middle the midst of negotiating with other schools in the community to help them with their energy bills, and are anticipating many more institutions to come forward and request the same for themselves”, says Tessler. “Many schools in New Jersey are installing solar panels systems and we expect to see this trend continue. It just makes good sense; both financially and from an environmental viewpoint.”
New Jersey’s green initiatives and government funding programs mean systems get paid off faster in the Garden State than any other state in the nation, and SRECs are worth twice in New Jersey compared to other states. SRECs currently sell for around $680 650 each in New Jersey. This is in addition to possible income generated by producing excess power and selling it back to energy companies.
The possibilities and funding assistance make New Jersey home and business owners much more eager to install energy saving solar systems - the rewards after just a few years are considerable, as paid off systems go to work not only to provide power, but to provide income as well.
Israel Berkowitz of Berkowatts Electric, has been hired by Arosa Solar as their in-house installer. Arosa Solar believes in using local companies and contractors to keep the community strong. The Bnos Bais Yaakov installation is expected to take a total of three weeks to accomplish.
