Solar Install by Edison Solar

Our Company

Edison Solar has been in the alternative energy business since 2007. Although the company was formed just six years ago, our team brings years of experience in each position.

Edison Solar is fully insured and warrants all of its work for a period of one year. Manufacturers warranties on key components are for 25 years on solar panels and 10 years on inverters.

Edison Solar was founded primarily to make a difference in the changing global environment and to reduce the dependence of the United States on foreign energy. Our motto is “cleaning up the world one job at a time”. We believe that renewable energy projects with government support can now be done economically and that our team is more than qualified to execute any project we undertake.

Dr. Miller
President

Brings decades of experience to the table in business management and construction. A small testament to his business skills is that he was the first in the state of Ohio to obtain a U.S.D.A. solar grant. His experience includes the completion of the "Millwood" real estate development and the "New Building" project in addition to seven years in solar business.

Icon for Engineers

Engineers

Our electrical engineer is N.A.B.C.E.P. certified with many years experience in designing and installing renewable energy systems. He was one of only six engineers approved by the State of Ohio for renewable energy project development where State funds were involved before the program was eliminated in 2010. Alternative energy is one of his passions and he spends time keeping up on the latest developments in solar technology. He is so knowledgeable that he is one of just a handful of individuals in Ohio that teach courses for N.A.B.C.E.P. certification.

Our structural engineer is licensed in 19 states and has been engineering for over 21 years.

Technicians and Installers

Our capable technicians and installers have multiple years of solar experience. They have completed all types of installations from ground mounts to roof mounted arrays. Many roof mounted arrays have been completed on most roof composition types from metal to asphalt shingles. Most installed ground mounts have been the "sturdy rack" a special integrated system developed by Edison Solar Inc. The "sturdy rack" reduces the chances of damage from weight and twisting when compared to most "pole mount" designs.

At Edison Solar, we believe...

There is no new form of energy on the horizon that suggests electricity is going to become obsolete. Electricity will continue to be needed and electric bills will not go away. These facts are about as certain as death and taxes. Economic history has also demonstrated that electricity prices will continue to rise. Further, pending new regulations on electric plants will likely increase their cost to comply, raising prices to the consumer.

This being the case, there are four good reasons to invest in renewable energy, instead of continuing to buy electricity generated from fossil fuels. They are: financial savings, increased physical and economic security, reduction of climate change, and preparation for the end of fossil fuels.

The empirical evidence is overwhelming that our world is getting warmer. This is clearly evident from abundant imagery showing the reduction of glaciers and ice caps. A few examples:

  • The Wilkins Ice Shelf in the western Antarctic Peninsula that once covered six thousand square miles has, in the last decade and a half, lost a third of its area. Nine other ice shelves in that Peninsula have receded or collapsed in the past 50 years, resulting in a loss of about 25 thousand square km of ice.
  • For the first time in recorded history, the Northwest Passage is now open for shipping.
  • Our own Glacier National Park is down from the 150 glaciers in 1910 to 25 glaciers in 2010, with the expectation that they will all be gone by 2030.
  • 2015 was the hottest year on record.

The Climate is Changing...

There are two potential categories of causes for climate change. They are the sun and other natural phenomena and the activities of man such as deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.

While most people do not deny that climate change is happening, some doubt that the activities of man are playing a significant part in the change. If one takes the position that man’s role in climate change is uncertain, then there are two choices, to do nothing or to do something.

If the choice is to do nothing and some years in the future it is determined beyond anyone’s doubt that man’s actions were a substantial factor in climate change then it will be too late to avoid the worst effects because greenhouse gases take a long time to dissipate out of the atmosphere. If, on the other hand, the choice is to take action to reduce climate change and it is later determined that man’s actions had no significant effect, the result is merely a cleaner planet for future generations and a step in the inevitable transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. One thing is for certain…sooner or later fossil fuels will run out.

The Trade Deficit is growing...

If the argument for renewable energy to reduce climate change is not persuasive, and to many it is not, consider the following...

  • Each and every month for years the U.S. has had a huge trade deficit in the millions of dollars. Our Country cannot continue to run such large deficits anymore than individuals can continue to charge without paying on credit cards.
  • A large part of the trade deficit goes for payments to foreigners for the oil we import. A substantial portion of that money goes to countries like Saudi Arabia who alone had approximately 200 billion in oil revenue in 2008. Millions of those dollars the Saudis and others receive from us are spent on the spread of radical Shi’a and Wahhabi beliefs. Those beliefs have as a central goal the elimination of the “infidels” of the world, namely everyone who is not a Muslim.
  • As former CIA director Jim Woolsey said, “We are funding the rope for the hanging of ourselves.”


People can save money...

Perhaps the most important consideration for most people is financial. Consider the following example for solar. If you are paying 12 cents per kilowatt-hour, are in a 35% tax bracket, receive renewable energy credits, and take advantage of the federal tax credit, a commercial solar system will pay for itself in approximately 6 years, leaving a minimum of 19 years of free electricity.

With this kind of savings, doesn't it make sense that instead of sending your tax dollars to Washington that you put those dollars that you can gain from the 30% renewable energy tax credit and accelerated depreciation into your own solar project on your own property? Or, instead of gambling your investment dollars in the stock market or putting them in a bank where you will lose your meager interest to inflation, to put those dollars into your own green energy system on your own property and receive a sizable profit right at home investing against an inevitable bill?

Facts of renewable energy

What to do now?

At Edison Solar, we believe that the stakes are too high and the consequences too great for our future, the rest of humanity and the planet that the decision should be made for renewable energy. Installing a solar electricity generating system would be a big personal step you could take to improve our balance of trade, reduce funding for people who want to harm us, affect climate change, and save yourself some money.
