So you didn’t get all your holiday shopping done on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Cyber Monday (or whatever else is out there for the other days). That’s fine. We’ve got you covered with some solar ideas for everyone. And maybe there’s a little something for yourself!
When you’re looking into getting quotes from solar companies, they’re all going to operate just a little differently. Icon Solar? We’re very different.
Many companies have been in the news lately for their dedication to adopting sustainable practices. Much like microbreweries, large national and international companies are investing in their own future—and our own future—by installing solar systems. Like lighthouses, they’re beacons lighting the way into a cleaner, brighter future.
Drew Boyd & Jacob Goldenberg recognized a pattern in innovation to create a systematic approach: Subtraction, Division, Multiplication, Task Unification and Attribute Dependency. They call it the Systematic Inventive Thinking, or SIT. We’re doing a series of how solar technologies approach innovation. Let’s take a look at how some of these innovation approaches (Task Unification and Attribute Dependency) apply to solar technologies in roadways across the world.
I’m about to build a house. Is that a good time to install solar?
Worried About Cost of Build
Dear Worried About Cost of Build,
That’s a great question!
The best time to install solar is when you’re building because you won’t be retrofitting your home for solar. If you know you’re going to have a renewable energy home, it’s best to design the house with solar in mind.
Even if you’ve gone solar, it’s a good idea to be aware of your electric usage, especially as more objects turn to advanced technology. As your usage skyrockets during these extremely hot summers, now’s the perfect time to start cutting back, even if you have a solar system! Let’s take a look at the ways in which you can reduce your electric bill or your electric usage.
Micro, nano, and craft breweries are on the rise, and that’s important for a variety of reasons like revitalizing local economies. However, one of the most important elements they bring is their sustainable operations. Brewing takes a lot of water and energy, and they recognize that their businesses depend on access to good resources. The American Brewers Association even provides sustainability manuals for interested parties.
The 30 percent solar tax credit does not apply to non-profits, and most grants for non-profits to purchase solar are no longer operating. However, a few remain at the federal, state, and city levels. Some are even offered by your utility company. Here are a few grants for non-profits still in operation.
How do I know my house is right for solar?
Dear Mr. Unsure,
Though Icon Solar briefly discusses the matter of whether your house can be solarized on the website, I, Wanda your Wealth Warrior, wanted to clarify a few things including sun exposure and restrictions.
