“The Long Island market is back on track as one of the country’s most vibrant solar markets. Long Island residents will continue to have the choice of getting clean, renewable energy through LIPA’s terrific solar program.”
Bohemia, Long Island (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
In response to modifications made to Long Island Power Authority’s (LIPA) Solar Pioneer Program, Roof Diagnostics Solar (RD) today expressed its support for the removal of a cap on residential solar installations. The cap would have restricted growth of the Long Island solar market and had devastating consequences on its very successful Solar Pioneer Program.
“We are pleased that LIPA was willing to listen to our perspective and grateful for such swift and decisive action in eliminating the rebate cap,” said Kelcy Pegler Jr., co-founder of Roof Diagnostics Solar. “LIPA’s decision will help maintain a robust and competitive program for Long Island residents.”
With the rebate cap lifted, Roof Diagnostics’ favorable market outlook has resumed. The company has invested millions of dollars and hired 74 full time Long Island employees to work out of the 8,800 square foot Bohemia, Long Island office. The company has also reinstated its plan to add an additional 100 full time employees by the end of September. These positions include administrative professionals, system designers, installers and other entry-level solar positions.
The Long Island market has proven to be one of the nation’s leading solar markets with customers taking control of their own energy by having solar panels installed on their roofs.
Pegler concluded, “The Long Island market is back on track as one of the country’s most vibrant solar markets. Long Island residents will continue to have the choice of getting clean, renewable energy through LIPA’s terrific solar program.”
