    Directory Last Updated July 2014

    The IFE maintains Pennsylvania's original Renewable Energy Online Business Directory with listings from more than 75 companies.  Before beginning your search for an installer, see our starting a renewable energy project page for tips to save you time and money. Renewable energy systems are significant investments.   We recommend you learn the basics of each technology before calling and review the questions listed below. Take your time to shop around, compare suppliers and find the one you feel comfortable with.    

     

    Questions you will be asked by installers (be ready to answer):

    What is your energy usage and how much are you paying?
    What are your goals? (cost savings, environmental, helping to get the country off of foreign energy sources, etc.)
    Do you want a grid-tied system, grid-tied with battery-back up or an off-grid system?
    Where and how are you considering using the system or energy source?
    Do you plan on installing it yourself, helping to install it or paying an installer to do all the work?
    Do you plan on maintaining it or paying someone else to maintain it?

    Questions you should ask installers:

    Typically renewable energy systems installers conduct a site visit which can cost $50 - $300 or more so first you should ask
    What is included in a site assessment and what do you charge?
    Do you perform an energy use assessment?
    How does the system work and how will it supply my building, home, vehicle with energy? Make sure you understand this very clearly and ask them to repeat anything you don’t understand.
    How much energy might the system generate/produce?
    Is there a performance guarantee?
    What is a typical system cost?
    What financial incentives exist to help pay for it?
    Have you worked with any lenders that have experience with renewable energy systems?
    What can I expect in terms of payback (when you’ll make your money back)?
    What do I need to know in terms of building and electrical permitting? Zoning?
    Who is responsible for obtaining the proper permits and approvals?
    How long will the system last? How do you know that for sure?
    Do you provide a maintenance or service warranty for the first year?
    Can I purchase an extended warranty?
    What can I expect if maintenance is needed?
    Is regular maintenance needed? How often and what type?
    How long have you been in business?
    What certifications do you have?
    How many installations have you done?
    Do you have references I can contact? Pictures of previous installations? Installations I can visit?
    When could the installation take place?
    From start to finish, including permitting and utility approvals, how long might the installation take?
    What can I expect from the installation itself in terms of disruptions to the building/site? Describe the installation process.
    Do you work with my electrical utility to complete the grid interconnection?
    Are there interconnection costs I should be aware of?
    Have you worked with my utility before? What utilities have you worked with?

    Tech Check: Biodiesel

    Biodiesel is a clean-burning fuel produced from vegetable oils and animal fats through a chemical reaction and meeting ASTM D 6751 standards, which ensure that all biodiesel behaves in the same way.

    Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with oil or diesel. Biodiesel is different than ethanol and is also different from running an engine or boiler on vegetable oil.

    Common biodiesel myths:
    1. "Biodiesel is cheaper than conventional diesel and/or gasoline"--unless you make your own, in most cases it isn't any cheaper but it does help us diversify our fuel system and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels

    2. "100% biodiesel can be used year-round"--in most cases, this is not true and if the temperature drops below 32 degrees, biodiesel can gel and create problems. Blends of no more than 20% are recommended during days when the temperature is below 32 degrees.

    USES OF Biodiesel
    It can be used in home heating oil systems safely with no modifications to the fuel tanks, pumps or burners in concentrations up to 5% biodiesel. For fuel blends between 6% and 20%, minor changes (including a pump with proper seals) may be required. Up to 100% biodiesel can be used in any diesel-burning vehicle with no modifications. In fact, the high lubricity of biodiesel lubricates your diesel engine and prolongs its life.

    You can buy the biodiesel from one of the providers listed in this directory, or you can make your own out of fresh or used vegetable oil.

    Warning: making your own biodiesel involves the use of dangerous chemicals and we highly recommend that you research the dangers and protect yourself--as well as dispose of the chemicals in a responsible way by contacting your solid waste authority.

      Company Overview

      Mission Improve our country's energy independence for current and future generations. Providing domestically produced petroleum, biofuels, propane, natural gas, and electricity through our growing network of committed AMERIgreen distributors. Vision Our Success, is dependent on the success of our distributors. Everything we do is aimed at helping our distributors succeed. With over six decades of experience in the petroleum industry, the founders of AMERIgreen's interest in alternative energy became clear during the oil embargo of the early 1970's. They realized they were not just oil suppliers, but energy suppliers. Their vision, resources, and strong industry affiliations helped pioneer their early efforts in establishing a strong, energy independent America. Total commitment to customers is our highest priority. Today, we have built a strong team of leading industry experts who take pride in being recognized as a trusted, long-term partner that our customers have always counted on for guaranteed quality, procurement, and logistics concerns. With this, our commitment to you is to deliver the exceptional personal service you deserve. If you aren't satisfied, neither are we. That is a promise. The AMERIgreen vision of Energy Independence. America's dependence on oil is one of the most serious threats that our nation faces. It bankrolls dictators, pays for nuclear proliferation, and funds both sides of our struggle against terrorism. It puts the American people at the mercy of unstable gas prices, stifles our innovation, and limits our ability to compete. Realizing this, the vision of our founders has never been stronger than it is today. If there was ever a time when a major shift in the U.S. energy economy was possible, it is now. Decades of pioneering research and development, by both government and industry, have yielded new technologies that turn abundant domestic energy sources,including biomass, into transportation fuels and heat. We feel strongly, that as a nation, we have the ingenuity and determination necessary to create an energy secure America. We can discover and implement new ways of building America’s use of domestic, non-polluting renewable energy that creates jobs, improves our security, and strengthens the health of our Nation and our economy.

    Geothermal

     

    Tech Check: Heat Pumps

    Geothermal heat pumps use the constant temperature of the earth as the exchange medium instead of the outside air temperature. This allows the system to be more efficient in heating and cooling because (for example) it doesn’t have to work to raise the temperature from 10° to 70° in the winter, it only has to raise it from around 50°.

    There are two basic types of geothermal heat pumps: closed loop and open loop with variations on each. The kind that you install depends on the climate, soil conditions, available land, and local installation costs.

    Closed-loop are the most common type of geothermal heat pump design and feature high density polyethylene pipe buried horizontally at 4-6 feet deep (for the closed horizontal loop) or vertically at 100 to 400 feet deep (for the closed vertical loop). These pipes are filled with an environmentally friendly antifreeze/water solution that acts as a heat exchanger. In the winter, the fluid in the pipes extracts heat from the earth and carries it into the building. In the summer, the system reverses and takes heat from the building and deposits it to the cooler ground.

    The design is basically the same for closed pond/lake loops, but instead of being buried underground, a supply line pipe is run underground from the building to a nearby pond or lake and coiled into circles at least eight feet under the surface to prevent freezing.

    Open-loop systems use well or surface body water as the heat exchange fluid that circulates directly through the system. Once it has circulated through the system, the water returns to the ground through the well, a recharge well, or surface discharge.

    Typical installed costs for homeowners can range from $12,000 - $20,000 depending on heating/cooling load, site characteristics, and other factors. This is more than a conventional HVAC system, but heat pumps last much longer, are typically easier (and cheaper) to maintain, and become more cost effective as electricity rates increase (a likely future scenario).

    Hydro
     

     

    Tech Check: Hydro

    Hydro power uses the flow of water to turn a turbine that generates electricity.

    To take advantage of this form of renewable energy, you need a flow of water, a river, stream, water line, etc. that provides a sufficient water flow rate and head. Head is the vertical distance between where you would divert the water to your turbine and where it would re-emerge to be joined back with the original water source. You can have heads as low as 6 feet, but you will need to have relatively high flow rates to generate any significant power.

    The river or stream can be diverted to flow through a turbine or in cases with an existing dam, small turbines can be added. Small or micro hydro is also used in municipal water systems in place of pressure reducers.

    The equation for estimating power for small and micro hydro systems:

    Head (feet) x Flow (US gpm) / 10 = Output (Watts)

    There are four types of solar energy: passive solar, solar hot water, solar thermal, and solar electric

    Passive solar requires no special equipment like the other types of solar energy do. The purpose is to orient the windows in your home and make use of blinds to heat your home using the sun’s energy. You can also use thermal mass (concrete, brick, etc.) to absorb the heat from the sun and distribute it throughout the house. Passive solar can work for everyone.

    Solar hot water functions in much the same way as geothermal systems do. However, instead of using the heat underground, you are using liquid-filled tubes to transfer the sun’s energy to your hot water tank. This can work for nearly everyone, but you will have to take your climate into consideration when choosing the type of solar hot water system to use. Solar thermal can be used for anything from radiant heated floors to heating the water in your pool. In any case, this system functions the same as solar hot water systems do.

    Solar electric makes use of photovoltaic panels to collect energy from the sun and convert it into electricity. "Thin film" solar is also coming to the market and uses another technology to harvest the sun's rays. Though costs come down every year, solar-generated electricity is currently the most expensive form of solar power. It also requires a certain amount of uninterrupted sunlight each day. You can generally get about one KW of power (panels) per 100 square feet of roof space. The following three steps can be used to figure out how large of a solar electric system you would need to take care of all of your electricity needs.

    First, to determine the size of your system, you first determine how much energy you need on a daily basis in watt-hours (Wh). This data can be found on your electric bill on a monthly basis if you have one for your location. To estimate the energy usage on a daily basis, take your monthly estimate, which is in kilowatt-hours, multiply by 1,000 to get it in watt-hours and divide by 30.

    Second, you need to determine the solar insolation value (the measurement for the strength of the sunlight striking the earth) for your site. Solar insolation data for all over the world and at different times of the year has been investigated and recorded. The peak, average and lowest annual solar insolation values for several different USA cities can be found here. Choose the city closest to you in the table and that will give you a good estimate of the amount of solar insolation for your location. If you're going to be totally disconnected from the electric grid, then you will need to use the minimum solar insolation value for your location. If you're going to be feeding your electricity into the electric grid then use the average solar insolation value.

    Lastly, you need to divide your estimated daily energy usage by the solar insolation value and multiply by a system inefficiency factor: Total Watts of Solar Electric Panels Needed = [(Daily watt-hours)/(solar insolation)] x Inefficiency Factor (the inefficiency factor for systems that are disconnected from the electric grid (off-grid) is 1.3. For systems that are connected to the grid, that value is usually assumed to be 1.2).

    You can use the National Renewable Energy Lab's PVWatts calculator to find out how solar electric panels could perform at your location.

    Tech Check: Wind Power

    A wind generator’s rotating blades convert the wind’s kinetic energy into the rotational movement of a shaft. The rotating shaft turns an alternator, much like the one in your car, which makes electricity. This electricity is transmitted through wiring down the tower to its end use.

    The most common wind turbines are horizontal axis turbines and feature three blades. Vertical axis turbines (often shaped like a double-helix) hold a lot of promise and are coming to the market but generally their performance has yet to be proven and they are typically more expensive.

    Generally speaking, you need at least a 1/2 acre of open land where you can mount the turbine on a tower (though this depends on local zoning and regulations), and your annual average wind speed should be at least 10 - 12 miles per hour. We have several resources for you to more fully understand your wind resource: the County Wind Maps for Pennsylvania and our  Community Wind Project which provides wind assessment services for mid-sized projects. You can also ask the small wind professional you contact for more information on the wind resource at your site.

    In Pennsylvania, wind resource is strongly related to elevation, so the higher you are in elevation the better the wind resource. Generally properties with 1,500 - 2,000+ of elevation are best suited for wind energy. You can put a wind turbine just about anywhere and it will generate electricity. . .the question is how much and if the result satisfies your financial goals and other desired results.


    When considering wind power, keep in mind that the tower needs to extend the turbine at least 30 feet above nearby obstructions such as trees, buildings or hills. These create turbulence in the air causing the wind turbine to work very inefficiently. The general rule is "the higher the better" and we recommend using at least a 60+ foot tower and 100 - 110 feet is even better.

    Typical installed costs can range from $15,000 - $20,000 for a 1.8 kilowatt turbine (approximately enough electricity for 1/2 - 1 average U.S. home) to $50,000 - $60,000 for a 10 kilowatt turbine (enough for 3 - 4 average U.S. homes).

    See what different kinds of turbines are out there with this list of small wind turbine manufacturers.

    Tech Check: Energy Efficiency

    Before you even take the first step towards installing any sort of renewable energy system, you should take a good look at your home or business and decide if anything can be done to improve your energy efficiency and conservation of energy. Energy efficiency means using energy-efficient products such as low-flow showerheads or compact fluorescent light bulbs in order to use less energy without changing your lifestyle. On the other hand, conserving energy means using the same appliances, etc. but changing the way in which you use them – such as turning off the lights when you leave a room or using a clothesline instead of a dryer on sunny days. The most money and energy is saved by using energy efficient products while practicing energy conservation habits – for example, you could use a fuel-efficient vehicle (energy efficiency) while combining multiple errands or carpooling (energy conservation). This Fact Sheet has been created to provide some tips to improve your energy efficiency and conservation. Together, these simple steps could save you $600 a year or more on your utility bill.
