The Hudson Valley's Energy Reduction and Solar Specialists
 

The Malcarne Process

THE FIRST STEP IS TO
Set up a Site Survey

Set one up via our website, email or call directly. We will then request a digital copy of your latest electricity bill (all we need from Central Hudson customers is your account number). Once we receive the bill, we will request approximately an hour of your time, although for larger commercial buildings it can take longer. We will go through your house or business with you and give you our expertise on your building’s energy use. The survey is free of charge, so if nothing else, you can use our energy experts to learn about your building’s electricity use.

ONCE THE SITE SURVEY
Is Complete …

We take our findings back to the lab and model your electric usage. We then determine the most cost effective electric reduction measures for your home or business. Using our model, we then calculate the amount of electricity saved via the electricity reduction measures. Next, we will cross reference your potential electricity reductions with your energy bill to determine your new electric use footprint. We then design your solar array based on this smaller footprint.

THE NEXT STEP IS TO
Review Our Findings

and proposal with you. Once you have agreed to move forward with us, we will work with you and our financing partners to secure financing (if requested) for the project.

Once financing is secured, we will take the project forward from there. We will secure building permits, utility interconnection agreements, order materials, install the solar array as well as electric reduction measures, arrange inspections and close out all permits and interconnection requirements. We pride ourselves on our customer service, so you can expect updates on our progress at all points during the project. Not only will we continually update you, but you also will have a direct number to your project’s construction manager.

FINALLY AT THE
End of the Project

We create a handover manual for your records with all relevant information, set up online data monitoring for your solar production, and give you, a hands-on demonstration of how the equipment works.
