Overview of Solar Systems

Summary:
Businesses have embraced solar and begun to implement significant number of systems across the country. Alan Frasz, President of Dovetail Solar and Wind, will present an overview of solar systems. He will show examples of different types of implementations and why the adoption of renewable energy is accelerating across the region. The presentation will cover important features and benefits of the technology, as well as the key characteristics prospective owners should consider in selecting a system and installer. He will detail the projected ROI and environmental benefits. Al will review the utility savings, available tax incentives, grants and renewable energy credits that are making renewable energy a great investment for commercial projects.
