The increasing viability of solar and wind energy

While solar energy collection has been around for a long time, the technology is constantly improving. Chris Merklein is with Arch Electric; the company started out as a traditional electrical contractor but moved into the renewable energy side. He notes every site and location is different and that is why the will do a full analysis of that site to determine if solar, wind or other energy sources are viable. “We’re a very low-pressure operation; we just lay out the facts and let the customer decide.”

One note to take into consideration is that the federal government is very “friendly” towards renewable energies with various incentives and tax credits available which makes these projects even more attractive.
