Herrington’s Powers Hudson Store with Solar Installation

September 14, 2013 -- Hudson, NY -- Ed Herrington, Inc., one of the oldest family-owned building supply companies in the Hudson Valley has installed Solar Panels on their Hudson Store and Drive-Thru Lumber Yard at 1 Graham Ave., Hudson, NY. The new solar panel installation will allow Herrington’s to save 25% on a substantial portion of its existing electricity costs at their Hudson store.

Herrington’s worked with Lotus Energy of Hudson, NY in selecting the proper system for their retail store in Hudson.  “Our on-staff Architect created 3-D renderings for the Herrington’s Hudson Store Solar Energy System that included roof panels and a unique solar “awning” which was installed over the front entrance of the store” said James R. “Jeevan” Goff,  President of Lotus Energy, Inc.  Lotus Energy then collaborated with Monolith Solar, one of the top three solar installers in New York State to oversee the installation of a 50 kilowatt system on the roof of Herrington’s Hudson headquarters located at 1 Graham Avenue in Hudson. “One of the big advantages of installing this system was our policy of no upfront costs to the customer” said Monolith’s Strategic Account Manager, Tim Carr.   With full maintenance and guaranteed free replacement parts for 20 years, Monolith’s Power Purchase Agreement is unique to Monolith among New York State solar installers.  

“Herrington’s works with Architects, Builders, Local Organizations and Businesses providing them with project assistance and products needed to meet their “Green” Building needs.  Herrington’s helps those who are seeking ways to reduce energy costs in their homes and businesses” says Rich Herrington, Vice President/General Manager of Herrington’s. “Our Hudson facility solar panels installation was a logical next step in cost and energy savings for our own business” he added.
