Hudson Solar – Saratoga Publishing
Saratoga Publishing — Home & Lifestyle 2015
Growing up, Jeff Irish kept an eye on energy costs. Spurred on by the 1970s oil crisis and decades of rising oil prices, he was drawn to the benefits of solar energy. In 2002, he installed solar panels on his barn, one of the few people in the region to do so at that time. Word spread of his innovative solutions, and neighbors, family and friends started requesting his help. Soon, a business was born.
Today, with more than 10 years in the industry, Hudson Solar has two regional offices and a large staff with the expertise and experience to design and install complete solar systems. In addition to home use, Hudson Solar has an extensive portfolio of projects that include electric vehicle charging stations, agricultural, school, government and corporate applications. Working from the belief that every installation deserves a customized approach, they offer free energy evaluations to discuss options and answer questions for homes and businesses, while considering everything from available space and energy needs to local weather patterns and more.
For Hudson Solar, leading the way in the shift to clean, secure energy generation consists of helping clients arrange financing options, handling the utilities paperwork and providing a workmanship warrantee for service after installation. With recognitions including the 2014 Times Union Top Workplaces Award, being a 2013 SunPower Intelegant Award Finalist, the 2012 & 2013 NYSERDA Highest Home Efficiency Award, and the 2011 NYS Excellence in Quality Award, among others, Hudson Solar is delivering reliable power and real savings.
