“We are producing more power than we need to heat, cool and run Paragon’s operations.”

Name
Zach Luse representing Paragon Digital

What motivated you to install solar?
I wanted to make my business energy independent and save a historic building by making it energy efficient and eliminating heating costs.

How many panels do you have, and if you know, how much energy are you producing, percentage of your electric usage?
105 panels. 33.6 kWp, more than 100% of our electric usage.

What has been the biggest benefit so far? What are you excited about?
We are producing more power than we need to heat, cool and run Paragon’s operations.

What were the obstacles to installing solar and what did you do to overcome them?
We needed a new roof but federal low interest financing through the New Hampshire Community Development Finance Authority made the new roof and solar array possible.

What advice do you have for people considering installing solar?
Also look at energy efficiency. Look at what you can do to reduce your energy usage and offset it with solar.
