According to Karen Parmanandam, marketing director for Positive Solar Energy, homeowners, businesses, Los Alamos County and Los Alamos Public Schools could all save money in the long run by installing photovoltaic systems.
“We’re here to talk about the dollars and sense of solar,” Parmanandam said. “Why does solar make sense, and not just for businesses? I’m talking about governments, for municipalities, for private entities, for nonprofits, for schools and, of course, individuals.”
Paramanandam presented “A Business Case for Solar” Aug. 24 as part of projectY’s ongoing series of business-related seminars. She stressed how the dropping cost of solar coupled with federal programs can make photovoltaic systems a smart move for business owners.
According to Parmanandam, solar is on the verge of hitting its “early majority,” when it becomes mainstream due to increased efficiency, better manufacturing, greater ability to meet demand and modernization of the electric grid.
