The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2011 is taking shape as teams work around the clock to assemble 19 solar homes on the National Mall's West Potomac Park in Washington, D.C., in time for the 10 a.m. September 23 opening. The Solar Decathlon is an international DOE competition that offers university teams a chance to design and build homes that run entirely on solar energy. Teams ship their structures to the site, assemble them, and then compete in ten contests.
The I NEED SOLAR, SunDrum technology allows our existing customers to add solar water heating capacity to their existing PV electric solar system without any additional space requirements. The Sun Drum technology takes advantage of the sun’s energy; effectively providing hot water and cooling the PV panels. Cooler PV panels mean more electric production and lower utility bills.
Owner, Peter Fuller told us “I have dealt with hundreds of contractors in the past, and I Need Solar has been one of the best. They offered top notch professional service throughout the entire process, from the initial sales presentation to the final installation. I am very happy with I Need Solar, and would not hesitate to recommend them to other business owners.”
I see solar as a great investment that not only adds value to my property but provides immediate tax benefits, long term cash flow potential and a huge reduction in my electric bill. I researched a number of solar suppliers and received bids from 5 companies. After an interview process, I concluded that I Need Solar offered the best combination of price and service, says Wilson.
