Exact Solar earns Super Service Award again for 2014

Exact Solar has once again earned the service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of service provided to members of the local marketplace in 2014.

Mark Bortman, Exact Solar owner, was thrilled with the repeat accomplishment.

“Solar energy is revolutionizing the energy landscape. We save our customers money right away, reducing or even eliminating altogether that line item in every household budget – the utility bill. The average cost-per-kwh from a residential system is generally less than half of what is paid for utility power today. And while utility prices just keep going up, your system price is fixed and you don’t have to worry about rising fuel costs with solar because the “fuel” for our systems is and always will be free. Solar is quick, easy, and affordable and our reviews reflect our commitment to bringing the highest quality systems to our customers every day while providing excellent customer service. We won’t put anything on our customers’ roofs that we wouldn’t put on our own home.”

Renewable energy becoming mainstream

Something is happening now that I never could have imagined. As recently as a couple of years ago, it seemed that solar panels were the domain of the rich and NASA. That is not the case anymore. Solar panels have become mainstream, so mainstream that there’s now a category for Best Solar Panel Installations in the Best of Philly annual awards.

Cows are like solar panels

Have you heard the expression, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” Well, since no one is giving away free milk, maybe I should buy the cow. The price of milk is close to $4 per gallon. According to CBS News, the price of milk is headed up even higher. I can’t imagine what a gallon is going to cost in five or 10 years.

Warmer pool, lower bills, cooler world

Finally it seems that spring has sprung! After our long, cold, snowy winter, it is nice to play outside and plant some flowers. Before we know it, it will be time for one of my favorite summer activities – swimming.

I really enjoy swimming. One of the things I don’t like, however, is getting into cold water. Unlike my kids, if the pool is cool, I take forever to get in, if I get in at all.
