North Jersey Partnership Provides Added Service For Customers - Langan Energy Solutions (LES), an Elmwood Park, N.J.-based solar integrator and energy efficiency company, recently announced a strategic alliance with Amberjack Solar Energy, an Oakland, N.J.-based solar integrator, in which the two companies will work together on solar and energy efficiency projects.
Under the new agreement, LES will provide new business leads for solar projects to Amberjack Solar on projects for which they perform the energy efficiency work; and Amberjack Solar will provide new business leads for energy efficiency projects to Langan Energy Solutions on projects for which they perform the solar work. "We're very pleased to be partnering with Amberjack Solar, one of New Jersey's premier solar integrators," said Joseph Langan, president of Langan Energy Solutions. "We feel this strategic alliance will not only benefit us, but also our customers, providing them with the ability to 'right size' their solar systems."
The high price of electricity - in combination with state and federal financial incentives - has turned the Northeast into a regional commercial solar powerhouse, with New Jersey, which recently replaced California as the nation's top commercial solar market, leading the way. But as many commercial property owners are learning, it is important to conduct an energy analysis before undertaking a solar project. "Energy conservation is the most cost-effective improvement a property owner can make," Langan said. "Energy that is not being used is energy that doesn't have to be generated. A more efficient building will use less electricity and require a smaller, less expensive solar system."
Energy conservation improvements include improvements to the HVAC system, sealing of the thermal envelope, upgrading insulation and changing lighting. These improvements can produce significant returns for much less than it would cost to install a solar photovoltaic (PV) system, and should be done before a solar PV investment.
LES helps customers reduce energy expenses, generate investment income and preserve the environment through the installation of energy-efficient technologies, and by providing energy procurement services to commercial, industrial, retail and non-profit customers in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
Amberjack Solar Energy specializes in the sales and installation of customized solar PV systems for commercial and industrial properties, including office buildings, warehouses and schools throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.
"We're excited about our partnership with Langan Energy," said Lance Kulick, founder of Amberjack Solar. "Our companies will be able to benefit from one another's expertise and resources, and better serve our customers. This a win-win situation for us and our clients."
