ISI Showcase

These are sunny days at ISI Solar. We've been selling a lot of systems, and it looks like it's going to be a busy summer. For those of you who have asked about what ended up happening with the rebates in the new year, I'm happy to say that the rebates, although slightly lower, are going to remain solid for at least another 2 years. In fact, the new incentive program includes higher rebates for schools and non-profits, which is a great idea. Hopefully solar will start to have more of a presence in schools and outreach programs in the coming years.

In honor of things looking good, I thought I'd dedicate a post to some of our installations. This one is a 5.1 kw system in Pearl River, New York made with BP solar modules. You might be surprised to know that most of the leading solar module manufacturers in the world are companies you're already familiar with. BP, Sharp, and Sanyo are some of the main manufacturers that we use.

This is an 8.1 kw system in Amawalk, New York -also made with the BP's. This system is actually big enough to produce close to 100% of the home's electricity. Net metering enables the homeowners to store enough credits from their energy production to compensate for the electricity they need at night and on rainy days.

This is a close-up of a 4.8 kw system in Valley Cottage, NY using Sanyo modules. Sanyo makes the most energy-dense module on the market, meaning you get the most wattage out of the smallest square footage (it's also the most expensive if you break down the dollars-per-watt)

This is an 8.8 kw ground-mounted system we did in Montebello, NY using Sharp modules. The homeowner didn't want the system on his roof - he preferred to have a kind of a lawn exhibition.

This is pretty neat. It's a 4.08 kw PV laminate job that we did for the Department of Public Works in Upper Nyack, NY. This is a technology made by United Solar Ovonic in Michigan. It's actually an adhesive that's ideal for standing seam metal roofs. There's no roof penetration, it adheres directly to the roof material to blend in with the fascade.
