  • Solar Heating Reduces Energy Costs at Gaylord - Case Study

    Gaylord Hospital’s quiet 500-acre setting had its drawbacks. There were no natural gas pipelines leading to the area, and installing them would be cost-prohibitive. Instead, Gaylord relied on oil heat, an almostequally daunting expense, especially in Connecticut winters. But then Mark Veere, facility manager for Gaylord, came up with an idea for cheaper energy without digging up those ...

  • Offshore Wind Versus Solar in the Eastern US: An Unexpected Rivalry

    Less than a decade ago, offshore wind energy and solar PV were similarly priced energy sources. Unsubsidized installed costs for both exceeded $5 per watt, or more than double that for land-based wind. Despite their cost, both technologies were seen as the best hopes for supplying urban centers with green power, especially in the BOSNYWASH (Boston-New York-Washington, DC) corridor of the eastern ...

  • What can you achieve with a solar system and battery?

    People often ask us about energy self-sufficiency. Just how hard is it to get to that point where you no longer have to pay a large corporation each time you turn on the kettle? This will depend on your usage patterns but for most people, a mix of renewable systems is the best option. We’ve taken a look at Gabriel’s home renewable systems as an example. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Gabriel ...
