Share Article

New Energy for Life announces the creation of a global online platform designed to bring together solar energy contractors and homeowners and businesses that want to rent or license their roof in exchange for solar energy generation.

Solar contractors all over the world are looking for optimum sites for their next solar plant.

Without even knowing it, thousands of businesses and millions of ordinary individuals already have under their control vast untapped and entirely cost-free energy resources whose potential they have not even begun to realize – unused roof space and the sunlight that strikes it every day of the year. This site's mission is to bring the two together, for mutual benefit – to unlock value in unused space for contractors looking for the ideal location for their next project, wherever it is in the world.

Roof owners use the service to list their roof space for rent. Unemployed individuals who are looking for a new career use the free training resources to learn how to become a solar / wind providers and installers. They can then register with the service to list themselves as Solar Contractors and can receive work orders that allow them to earn income for their services. Independent Contractors use the services to expand their business by finding new energy projects.

Renting rooftops to solar contractors has now become an accepted model that offers many advantages. The owner of the building makes roof space available for the operation of solar power systems and receives appropriate rent payments in return. The operator of the system provides the solar power and receives compensation for the electricity that is fed back into the power grid.

Depending on what the roof qualifies for the solar contractor can provide several options in exchange for the roof space. The contractor will recommend one of the following options:

Option #1 - The solar contractor provides the solar hardware and electricity at no cost to the roof owner as part of the rent. For this option, the solar contractor receives the federal rebate and monthly fees received from the local power company for the excess electricity sold to them. A small monthly fee may be paid by the roof owner to the local power company for the electricity provided by the local power company during cloudy or rainy days.

Option # 2 - The solar contractor provides the solar power equipment at no cost to the roof owner. The roof owner will pay one flat fee each month for the solar electricity. A small monthly fee may be paid by the roof owner to the local power company for the electricity provided by the local power company during cloudy or rainy days.

Option # 3 - The solar contractor provides the solar hardware at no cost to the home owner as part of the rent. The solar contractor receives the federal rebate; the monthly fees received from the local power company for the excess electricity sold to them and pay the roof owner a fee for the use of their roof.

The cost of the service is a one-time fee of $50.00 for roof owners to list their roof in the database. The funds collected from the listing fee are used to pay for administrative fees used to maintain the website and the advertising required to get the message out about this service.

New Energy for Life believes that working together we can jointly create the opportunities of today, and the new industries of tomorrow.
