Vadim Polikov founded #2 Astrum Solar to fill a simple need: give homeowners access to solar-powered energy.
The latest trend in solar power is leasing panels to save money over and above utility cost benefits.
Astrum Solar President Vadim Polikov on the factors driving the solar company’s huge growth.
The future is bright for Maryland’s solar industry. Astrum Solar®, a leading residential solar power provider and part of the Direct Energy® family of brands, is expanding its headquarters and tripling its footprint in Howard County.
More than 600,000 homes in the U.S. have solar panels today—up dramatically from just a few years ago, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Leasing programs that require little or no money up-front have played a key role in that growth. But here’s a question for homeowners: Is it better to lease or buy?
Fairfielders who installed solar panels through a town-sponsored program may avoid some of the steep sticker shock predicted for area electricity users this winter.
The International Energy Agency recently released a report that predicts solar could be the world’s largest source of electricity within less than four decades, ahead of coal, natural gas, wind, and nuclear.
The Eagans are powering their home with solar energy. They decided to go green because it helps the environment and saves them money.
The Solarize Newtown initiative was a success, said Sustainable Energy Commission chairman Kathy Quinn.
The town has partnered with Astrum Solar, a Maryland company that operates locally out of Hopkinton and that is providing free site evaluations.
The 10-week program ended Feb. 11. Town Manager Richard J. Johnson said the 38 contracts were twice as many solar installations as the town has seen in the last seven years combined. As more contracts were signed, the price for everyone's system went down.
For Bedford residents or small businesses that already are interested in — or want to learn more about — purchasing or leasing solar photovoltaic systems at lower-than-market prices, the next step in Bedford’s program with Solarize Mass is to meet the installer.
