"Great installation. There was a problem with one of the panels and it was replaced quickly. After the tax credits, state grant and srec payments we expect the" system to pay for itself in 4 years. Our house is now on the
and this has generated a lot of interest in the property. Our
bill is $0.00 in the summer months and we have a plugin hybrid car so we buy only about 10 gallons of gasoline a month. Every south facing roof in this country should have this installed.

"Four of our neighbors had previously used this company and we talked to two of them. Their installations went well as did ours. There was a lot for the company" to organize (permit from city, agreement with So
, ordering the panels, coordinating with our roofer and electrician, calling for inspections) yet the project progressed timely and we couldn't be happier. All of the employees we encountered were wonderful to work with. From start to finish it took about 3 months but a lot of that time was waiting on the City to approve the plans.

Are you talking about powering your home solely on solar (i.e. no back up power source or off grid).

 

The power, once convered from DC to AC via the inverter, is suitable for use by the home. 

 

Most solar application are in supplement to the current powering of the home and will spin the meter back in the day but are not the primary.

OK - that should strike Atlantic Plumbing off your vendor list !

You say female pipe to copper pipe connection - I hope you are not saying they connected copper directly to galvanized or black iron pipe. If so, there should have been a dielectric union put in there to prevent corrosion, which could be part of your problem.

Also, generally a bad idea to use teflon tape for hot water tank connections - too much thermal cycling, loosens it up over time. Should use plumbers dope for that application.

It sounds to me like a connection problem - if the tank itself was leaking it should be flooding the top of the tank or more likely running down through the insulation and dripping out the bottom.

Unless you are a do it yourselfer, sounds like you need to find a new plumber with good reviews and rating in your area - Search the List (in green banner bar). This should be an easy fix - should have him put in dielectric couplings (about $5-10 each depending on pipe size) if current connection is iron to copper, and even if not, have him redo connection not only for cold but also hot water - if one was done poorly, probably both were.

Solar Panel Installation reviews in Albany

I can only say great things about my experience with
Albany Solar Panel Companies Provider Name Locked
. From the first time I called them they were very professional and responsive. They scheduled a time that was convenient for me. The energy advisor who came to my home provided me with a great education, was very well informed, and did not make me feel uncomfortable or pressured. Signing up was very easy. They kept in touch with me every step of the way from beginning to end and kept me informed of the status of my project. The team that came to my home to install the solar system was very courteous and treated my home with respect and installed the system with no disruption to me and my family. The system has worked great from the day it was turned on. Now that is has been almost a year I can say that everything they promised me in savings I have received.
I shopped several solar companies for my system and I would strongly recommend

was the most competitive in pricing. Their pricing made economic sense as well as being environmentally responsible Synergy also had excellent reviews on solarreviews.com. The president of

Hofheins, was present during the initial sales presentation. The sales team did an excellent job recommending the correct size power system and were flexible to allow me to install it in two phases. They provided projections for the amount of power produced by month, both for the initial recommendation as well as the phase 1 portion. I have had the opportunity to monitor the first two months of production and it is a bit better than expected, but very close. Everything is warranted for 25 years both by the manufacturer and

This was our 2nd solar panel installation with

. After we moved into our new home, we called

was resourceful and very helpful, just like the first time. We discussed many options (most effective orientation, micro or central inverters, and type of solar panels). He has the same crew that did an excellent job the last time, and I was glad to see they were going be installing this system too. It took no more than a few days to install it, and he even managed to schedule a city inspection during the busy holiday season. I highly recommend

The warranty service appeared to have gone OK. (Although I'm again replacing one of the units they replaced, though I can't be sure the problem was due to their installation.) At the time of the warranty service they recommended some further work on my system.
I asked them to provide me with a quote to do so. They did not return repeated requests to schedule an inspection preparatory to giving me a quote.
I've changed vendors.
