Global Warming Strengthens Hurricanes

It is impossible to blame any one weather event —   be it a hurricane or a heat wave or a blizzard – on global warming. That is because weather is not climate.

Carl's system will save him $3,460 this year!

Babylon 12753 Tedeschi 8 15Babylon, NY ~ Energy By Choice installed this beautiful 12.753 kilo watt system for our customer Carl.  Carl's system will save him $3,460 this year!solar story icon for news page

Carl has chosen to finance his system, so his immediate savings are $70 a month from what he was previously paying PSEG.

Once his system is paid off, he will be saving about $300 a month.

His savings started immediately and will continue to grow over the long life of the system.

In addition to having more money in his pocket, by putting this solar system up the ecological savings are the equivalent of Carl planting 4 acres of trees.  Saving the planet....saving solar story at a time.  [view more installs]
