VT Digger commentary: solar vs. “solar”

Solaflect Energy is proud to be a part of helping change our energy economy to one that is based on clean renewables. We do our work because we want a better world, a world with healthier people, a stable climate, more vibrant ecosystems, and an economy that everyone can afford to live in. Solar is our contribution toward those goals. And because we believe in solar, we don’t play games with it. When we tell our customers we are selling them solar energy, we mean it. We don’t do the bait-and-switch that some other companies do.

Vermont Law School professor Kevin Jones has a commentary in VT Digger on this issue.

If you have a shaded roof or for any other reason can’t go solar with panels installed at your home, you can honest-and-truly go solar with hosted, off-site equipment at the Solaflect Community Solar Park.
