Hot Time Solar in the City


Solar & Energy Savings in Princeton by the numbers 

68 = Homes with solar installations
12 = Commercial properties with solar installations
35+ = Homes installing energy efficiency improvements using over $80,000 in incentives and an expected 25% reduction in energy
27 = Commercial properties installing energy efficiency improvements using over $350,000 in incentives 

Harnessing the sun’s energy is not a new idea, but thanks in part to lower technology costs and better market structures, going solar today is feasible for many residents and small businesses. And going hand-in-hand with solar is energy efficiency. You can reduce the energy needs and size of a solar system by making your property as efficient as possible. The good news is that there are also ways to make energy efficiency measures affordable. Come learn at Sustainable Princeton’s first Great Ideas Breakfast of its Fall 2015 series about the state of the solar industry today and how to choose solar for your home or business. Also, find out how to take advantage of state rebates and other incentives to help pay for energy efficiency that will save more than just money.

Join our free and public roundtable discussion with panelists Kelcy Pegler, Jr, President of NRG’s Home Solar; Gary E. Finger, New Jersey’s Business Energy Ombudsman NJ Board of Public Utilities; J. Scott Needham, President of Princeton Air Conditioning Inc.; and Robert V. Kiser, Princeton Municipal Engineer on Thursday, September 24 at 8:30am in Princeton Public Library’s Community Room.

The event is part of Sustainable Princeton’s EnergySmart Buildings campaign, which is supported by a grant from Sustainable Jersey and the Gardinier Environmental Fund. Sponsorship for Sustainable Princeton’s entire fall Great Ideas Breakfast series has been provided by NRG Energy, Inc.  The event is held in partnership with the Princeton Public Library. A complimentary light breakfast will be provided by Princeton’s Small World Coffee.
