Typically, a web designer's first question will be "What do you want your website to say?" Because we are energy professionals: LEED accredited with time on the rooftops, we can provide the articles you need to sell your services. Here are some samples of our work that can be customized to your website.

The more information your website has, the more value it has for your customers and for the search engines. Adding great content is one of the best ways to grow your business. No time? We can research and write a search friendly article on any topic. Are we any good? Check out some of the articles we’ve written.
Community solar is becoming a compelling and rapidly growing industry, thanks to favorable state legislation and substantial interest from utilities. The new industry provides utilities with a role in solar and provides solar ownership options to many who do not otherwise have them.
When a dog becomes deaf, just as it does for humans, it's a confusing time as they start to notice changes in their everyday world (unless they were born hearing impaired) more. Pet owners will notice that the dog is experiencing hearing loss if they suddenly don't respond the way they used to.
Did you know you don’t have to put solar panels on your roof to get solar power? You can go solar even if you rent your home, or live in a shady area. Welcome to the age of Community Solar! What is Community Solar?
YSG Solar is proud to offer solar energy solutions to both home and business customers in New York State. Our unique, turn key solar power systems - both traditional, state of the art roof top designs and the exciting new Community Solar Power option are backed by our solid customer service and quality, American made products.
Solar panels mounted on your roof convert sunlight directly into DC power. An inverter then converts this DC power into AC power (the type that can be used in your home). The system is interconnected with your utility.
A solar electric system, also called a photovoltaic or PV system, is made of special panels that generate electricity when exposed to the sunlight. It can literally spin the electric meter backwards, providing you free electricity day and night!
Simply, a commercial solar electrical system generates power for your business by converting sunlight into electricity. Although your primary source of power will continue to be your existing electric utility, whatever power your phorovoltaic (PV) system generates will be used first; reducing, even eliminating the need for you to pay for electricity. If your system produces more electricity than you are using, excess electricity will flow back into the electric grid, in effect spinning your meter backwards. This not only supports your community but you will also receive credits on your electric bill for these contributions. This called 'net-metering.'
Industrial solar power systems primarily provide electricity to remote areas where conventional power is too costly or difficult to reach. The systems can be skid mounted, roof mounted, pole mounted, trailer mounted, or assembled with industrial quality walk-in shelters.
Solar water heaters—also called solar domestic hot water systems—can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use—sunshine—is free.
Solar heating systems are generally composed of solar thermal collectors, a fluid system to move the heat from the collector to its point of usage. The system may use electricity for pumping the fluid, and have a reservoir or tank for heat storage and subsequent use.
It can cost a significant amount to heat a swimming pool for the season. One way to reduce swimming pool heating costs is by installing a solar pool heater. They're cost competitive with both gas and heat pump pool heaters, and they have very low annual operating costs.
A green roof is considered to be the roof of a building that is partially or completely covered in vegetation that has been planted over a waterproof membrane. Other layers may or may not include a root barrier, insulation, irrigation and drainage. A “green” roof could mean anything from solar panels to cool roofs. But a traditional green or living roof developed by our company means actual vegetation growing on top of a building.
Even in the Northeastern United States, solar energy can make a significant contribution to meeting demands for electricity. The New York State Renewable Energy Task Force has recommended that New York increase its generation of electricity from photovoltaics eight-fold by 2011. By 2013, twenty-five percent of all power used in New York is to come from renewable resources via the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Renewable resources include solar, wind, biomass, and some hydroelectricity. In order to achieve the RPS “25 by 2013” goal, NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority) offers grants and incentives to help bring down the costs of these clean resources.
