How Do Solar Energy Systems Work, Anyway?

Monday, September 10th, 2018

solar-skySure, I’d like to go solar. 

Sure, I’d like to save money when using electricity in my home. 

Sure, I’d like to make the greener choice when it comes to powering my appliances and electronics. 

Sure, it sounds great, but I can’t just count on the sun being out all of the time—so I guess solar is not for me, right? 

Wrong.

We get it, you want to be able to use electricity in your home reliably. That means that you cannot really turn to solar power in Southern Vermont. Just think about how early it gets dark out in the winter season!

Why Schedule Professional Leak Detection Services?

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Common sense may lead you to believe that recognizing the presence of a water leak is simple; you just look for water where there ought not be any.

Only professional plumbers are properly equipped to determine if there is indeed a leak, let alone where that leak may be. Contact HB Energy Solutions to schedule service. (more…)
