On Monday, October 15, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., the Caldwell Environmental Commission and the Caldwell College Sustainability Committee , along with EcoMatters and Advanced Performance Solar will offer a solar screening event at Werner Hall on the Caldwell College campus.
This event offers homeowners the chance to be screened for a zero-cost solar installation that would provide them with discounted electricity. “We’re excited to host this event with Caldwell College and invite all members of the community to join us to see if their roof is suitable for solar,” said Ann Marchioni, chairperson of the Caldwell Environmental Commission.
At the screening event, there will be monitors set up enabling interested homeowners to have their home screened via satellite photos to see if their roof appears to be suitable for solar. “It’s an easy, interesting way to learn about solar power,” said Fred R. Profeta, Jr., president of EcoMatters. “Residential solar installations are an effective way for homeowners to save money over a long-term period and minimize their fossil fuel consumption. We’re glad to bring these programs to New Jersey communities.” Profeta is a former mayor of Maplewood, a co-founder of the Sustainable Jersey municipal certification program, and winner of the Governor’s 2010 Environmental Leadership Award.
This event is open to all New Jersey homeowners. If you cannot attend, you can register on-line at to have your roof evaluated.
