Curious about solar power for your home?

Ron Cowgill will be talking about solar energy for today, including what’s new in the industry. He’ll discuss costs and Return on Investment (ROI), the benefits of solar in a world where the traditional energy costs keep going up while alternative energy costs are coming down, and what it means for individuals and small businesses interested in incorporating more alternative energy options into their lives. He’ll also talk about federal and state incentives to help both individuals and businesses defray some of the costs of installing solar.

Ron has been in the remodeling/construction business for over 20 years. He is the owner of both D/R Services Unlimited (18 years) and WinSol Power Company (2 years), and has always incorporated green and conservation practices into his projects. He has been actively involved with solar and wind since 2009, and has worked with various village boards in updating the codes that govern the use of solar and/or wind in the communities. He says he also enjoys long walks on a short plank.

Ron has a variety of Certifications, including Certified Remodeler (CR), Certified Kitchen and Bath Remodeler (CKBR), Green Certified Professional (GCP) through NARI, Licensed electrical contractor (1998-Current), Licensed general contractor in Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago (1995/96-Current), Certified Pella Installer, Certified Generac Installer, and has taken several week long PV and wind turbine site selection and installation courses. Ron also hosts Mighty House, a home improvement radio show heard on WCPT in Chicago (820 AM, 92.5, 92.7, & 99.9 FM) Saturday mornings from 7-10 a.m.
