How you can go solar—for free


GLEN SPEY, NY — An informational workshop on solar power will be held on Saturday, May 3 from 9 to 11 a.m. at Homestead School, 428 Hollow Rd.

The presenters will be Todd Okeson, Unified Infrastructure/East Coast Alternative Energy, Solar for Homes and Institutions; Stephen Stuart, technical specialist with Sullivan Alliance for Sustainable Development (SASD); and Carol Roig, co-executive director of SASD.

Learn from people who have already gone solar. Tour a roof-mounted installation where the homeowner leased his space to a company in exchange for a fixed electrical rate for the next 25 years with savings on his electric bill of up to 30%. Tour a purchased ground-mounted solar installation with 44,000 kWh annual capacity supplying 100% of a local school’s annual electrical needs.

Literature will be available. Contact Pete Comstock at 845/856-6359.
