Changing the Game

With Spring Training well underway, I wanted to give a very public nod to the Major League Baseball organization of teams for their commitment to the use of renewable energy.  Did you know that a decade ago, MLB became the very first professional sports league to enter into a partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Keep reading….

The Integrity of the Roof

Many of the solar installation professionals out there (hopefully) know that the biggest priority when installing an array is the act of maintaining the integrity of the roof. If you install an array and then weeks, months, or years later, the fastener points leak, your company’s integrity will most likely be on the line. No Keep reading….

Worth a Thousand Words

446 words – that’s how long the body of this post is….but it’s worth a thousand. Every few months we compile all of the installation images our customers send us. We’ve received a lot recently, for both EcoFasten Solar and Sister Company Alpine SnowGuards. It’s always an amazing feeling to see your company’s products attached Keep reading….

Tile Installs Taking Way Too Long?

You know the drill.  You’ve gone through it countless times.  Mounting solar panels to a tile roof can be quite a hassle – all the cutting, drilling, grinding and replacing of tiles….it’s never ending, and it’s an additional liability for solar installers.  Not to mention the incredible amount of time it adds to an overall Keep reading….

A Marriage of Sun and Snow

Sister Companies Alpine SnowGuards and EcoFasten Solar work very closely together – in fact, the birth of EcoFasten Solar was made possible entirely due to the existence of Alpine SnowGuards. Formed in 1998, Alpine SnowGuards very quickly became the industry leader in snow management systems.  Being founded by a former roofer provided the knowledge and precision-based Keep reading….

Running Interference for Solar

This past weekend I was scrolling through Facebook during the Green Bay/Seahawks and Patriots (woohoo!) / Colts commercials, and while glancing at what some of my friends were up to, I noticed that a bunch of people were commenting on one friend in particular’s post about the recent installation of a solar array on his Keep reading….

With that being Keep reading….

Until Next Year….

This is my favorite time of the year by far.  Part of the reason is obvious – the feeling in the air, the Christmas tree is up, hot chocolate with marshmallows, a wood fire burning, snowman-making, sledding, snowball fights, and the knowledge that my sweet, cherub-cheeked 8 year old still believes in Santa (although his Keep reading….

A Rooftop Revolution

This past Tuesday was a cold December day in Vermont, but not so cold that you couldn’t handle being outside for a couple hours.  We reached 20° by 10am, and the hour drive from our facility in Morrisville to the 1000th residential SunCommon installation in Barre went pretty quickly. We were invited to this coveted event because Keep reading….

Solar in the Green Mountains

Being born and raised in Vermont instilled in me a love of many things – the open air, the mountains, hiking, skiing, fishing….and the sun (to name only a few).  If you’ve ever lived in Vermont (or visited any time between late Fall to early Spring), you know how scarce the sun can seem for Keep reading….
