Most Solar Companies Are Trying to Scam You. This One is Different.

It’s no secret that solar is the energy of the future, and each day more homeowners and commercial business owners look to make the switch. With hundreds of solar companies out there promising to save you money while doing your part for the planet, how do you choose?

Look no further for your answer. Ron Urban of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions has led an extensive career in general contracting, electrical contracting, design, energy efficiency, and renewable energy for over 35 years. His well-rounded experience gives him a considerable edge over competitors, and he won’t just save you money, but make you money too!

Who is Ron Urban?

Before founding and becoming president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, Ron built an impressive base in the Energy field. Straight out of school, he founded Tecron Electrical Contractors and Engineers, which later became the parent company too Electrical Concepts and Construction. There he specialized in design projects for schools and storage industries. He even owned and purchased properties for Harley Davidson.

All of Ron’s firms have executed complete design and build planning, as well as general contracting administration for commercial and industrial projects throughout New Jersey. Through close collaboration with architects and engineers, Urban has been able to develop complex projects from the early stages of conceptual drawings all the way to building and completion. As a professional consultant, he has experience as a planning board experts, land developer, electrical contractor, and building designer.

In 2010 Ron teamed up with former Renewable Energy Technical Director for New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program, launching Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Together they agreed that consumer education should be the cornerstone and founding principle of their business plan. Their team continues to educate clients about solar energy systems, energy efficiency upgrades, tax benefits, and financial options. Ron leads with these ideals when doing business with you, and has helped over 5 Million people and local business so far!

The bottom line is, anybody can sell and install solar power, but only Ron has the knowledge and experience to keep you informed about every detail, every step of the way. He is not here to scam you, he is here to set you up with the best system available, and maintain it so that you may get the most out of your money.

Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Solar power is a form of renewable energy, and seems to be getting all of the attention, but it is important not to overlook the enormous difference that switching to energy efficient products (on top of converting to solar) can make. This company doesn’t just install solar panels, they can completely renovate your buildings with new, efficient products. Why do this? Well, converting could save you as much as 70% on your energy related bills. Trust me, after that, solar is just the icing on the cake.

How is this possible??

First Ron will personally meet with you and do a full assessment on your building and decide what your needs are. Quickly, he will be able to tell if your roof is losing you money, or your lights are obsolete.

The numbers don’t lie; here are some quick statistics that may blow your mind:

LED lighting saves you 80% when you make the switch from fluorescents.  A typical office space has 2×4 fluorescent light fixtures. These cost approximately $100 each per year in electricity…switch to high quality LED and that number drops to $20. Multiply that by thousands for a large building and you can really start to see the difference.

Another key thing here is quality; watch out for carpetbaggers trying to sell you low quality lighting. A good high quality LED light should run for 100,000 hours. That is approximately 20 years of not having to pay any maintenance fees on lighting! The perks add up don’t they?

Roofing is another surprising area you can save tons of money, and it may not be why you think. Most businesses are hesitant to put out the expense for a new roof because most companies will “drop and ditch”, leaving you with a low quality roof that leaks within a year or two.

Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions will maintain any and all products they install, giving you peace of mind.

Ron did the research to make sure that his roofing solutions are the best around. After talking to a professional engineer working for a large pharmaceutical company, he found the ideal roof. They studied 160 roofs and determined that Foam GE Silicone Roofing was the most cost and energy efficient. For example, Ron took a job in Jersey City in which he roofed a 160,000 square foot, one floor warehouse building with this high quality, insulating product. Heating and Cooling costs dropped by 60%! For this company, their yearly costs dropped from $100,000 to $40,000.

His goal is to switch all heating to electric, especially in warehouse businesses with already low heating costs, and he is here to teach business owners how.

What sets Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions apart?

Working with this company could be a game changer. On top of growing the value of your business or home, you could create a new revenue stream through energy efficiency.

30+ years of experience in design and build is what gives him the edge over solar competitors. He looks at every piece of the puzzle.

The chance that you will be ripped off by traditional “solar guys” is way too high. With Ron Urban, every job he installs comes with a warranty and maintenance guarantee for 20+ years.

You will never be left on your own, helpless and in a position where you now need to spend more money for repairs.

Recently Ron received a call from a large winery in New Jersey with two major solar systems installed by another company. They were calling to have someone check on the systems, as the business that installed the systems were providing no assistance or after-care. Ron quickly discovered that one of the systems hadn’t been running since 2011! Larger companies with separate accounting departments can’t be expected to know where their electric bills should be at all the time. This is why Ron does this monitoring for you, ensuring that your systems are always in working order and providing you with the highest savings possible.

One thing you know you are getting when you choose Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, is transparency. Ron Urban spells everything out for you, every step of the way. He even has “The Book of Ron”, a detailed account of everything his company will do for you, their guarantees, and important financing information.

Ron makes it easy. He handles all filing and calculations, and will always put it in your name and ensure that you understand every step of the process.

Now we all know that property tax is a major concern in New Jersey. Switching to energy efficient systems will increase the value of your property, but this will only help you in the long run. After you new systems are paid off, they will make you money. Due to New Jersey clean energy initiatives, your town will not increase your taxes if the increase in property value is due to energy efficiency upgrades. Ron will handle all paperwork in these processes to make sure that you get the most out of the deal.

Testimonials

When Kim of Excel Plumbing and Heating in Landing, NJ first considered using Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, she was hesitant, but it didn’t take her long to realize she had made the right choice by going with them for her solar needs. Her electric bill used to be anywhere from $700-$1,000 monthly for her machine shops and high-usage offices. Now she pays NOTHING. She no longer has anything to worry about when it comes to paying her electric bills and leaves them on auto-pay. She believes Ron met every promise he made in his book and is thankful for the added benefits such as tax incentives and solar credit. Her overall review, “Everyone should have it.”

Here is another example for you. Let’s say you own a business and keep the temperature at 68 degrees fahrenheit at all times. Before converting with Bub Urban, you paid $600 a month on your electric bill; now you pay $0 and earn $250 every month in solar energy tax credit.

Advanced Solar

Ron Urban is the founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. His mission is to educate people on the true workings of a solar system and how scammers are contaminating a major part of the solar industry. Solar has multiple benefits regardless of what type of business one owns or which industry you are a part of.

Ron’s Background

Ron’s background in commercial design is a huge advantage for his customers in plenteous ways. He saves you from companies that come knocking on your door, promising to save you money but only end up ripping you of the precious little you have. Ron and his company offer to either remodel or rebuild your business to allow you to enjoy the maximum of all incentives.

An important factor in reducing the size of installation is the type of building tools you employ. This is a factor that most companies choose to overlook because their only goal is to install your solar quickly, rip off your money and run.

Ron works eliminate your gas and electric payments and offer complete services in handling your project. Ron and his team lay out all the odds and evens, all the pros and cons on the table for you with absolutely no pressure to buy. Furthermore, once your project is complete you will encounter no mess in your homes, another plus you most definitely don’t get with the scam companies.

Making Money with Solar

The state of New Jersey offers huge tax advantages for solar businesses. What happens as a result is that most big and small sized businesses involve their accountants to spell out the benefits of including solar in the business, whether they possess any expertise in it or not. The accountants naturally approve because the benefits are humongous and operating expenses next to zero.

Solar is an ideal option if you own your own home or a business because of the different tax incentives. This means that if you invest in a project, whether $10,000 or $10 million, you end up getting a 30% from the entire project, granted by the federal government. It also means that your electricity bill reduces to 99% and you save a minimum of $3000 at least in a year.

Know What You Have Not been Told Before

One other important point to bear in mind is that most solar companies do not inform you about the Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SREC) as the incentives are called. These have the option of being deposited directly into your accounts. The checks continue to come in and this is one other way in which solar increases your revenue.

Based on some real life raving reviews, people have claimed that their electricity bills have almost zeroed out with air-conditioned fans running constantly, machines in operation and no compromise on electricity usage. Not only are people saving up money from not having to pay the huge electricity bills anymore but they are also generating more revenue from the tax incentives of the solar industry.

You can now make as many updates as you want and bring in newer machines without worrying about paying a dime.

E3 Energy Show

Announcer (s) : This is going to give you the energy to go on It’s the energy show. Here’s your host, Ron Urban.

[Music plays]

Eric Scott: Welcome to the energy show with Ron Urban, founder, and president of Advance

Solar and Energy Solution. Ron is one of the nation’s leading experts on energy efficiency and solar design. And over the next hour we’re going to talk to you about how solar should really work and why so many so-called solar companies are running a scam, essentially to steal your money. In this hour, we want to talk to businesses. If you own a business, this is a game-changer for you. Tap into the power of the sun. And Ron, it’s almost too good to be true when you spell out what the benefits of solar are and shocking when you realize what it is that so many people don’t take advantage of.

Ron Urban : One of the things I’d like to talk about for one second… one step backward is really what the energy show is about. It’s not an info commercial. It’s a show about energy and energy efficiencies. It’s about your business. It’s about the residents and everything. We’re going to have guests from… Manufacturers will be here. Product people will be here. Hopefully, we’re going to have people from New Jersey Clean Energy her. And a lot of guest speakers and things like that… where it’s a whole total package. People really are going to make a ton of money if they listen to this show.

One of the things that took me over 40 years to do through research and commercial buildings and things which I designed, build… and also in conjunction with electrical systems. But there’s a lot to it. Everyone thinks they know what they’re doing; most people don’t. But in reality, you’re going to learn a lot. We’re going to have people from some of the biggest companies here. We’re going to have people that are experts in different fields here. So… and by the way, they are going to back up what we talk about. Most of the people on these shows that are going to be on these shows, if there’s commercials in these shows… Not only are they guaranteeing their worth, they are people that I know, that I met, and I ’m going to guarantee their worth too.  All my projects are guaranteed and warranted way above anybody else. And that includes if we’re doing a solar system on your roof, we’ll take care of your roof.

We’re gonna show you how to get your money back on your commercial roof and how it really works, how it’s combined together. People call me all the time, especially in a commercial industry saying, “I don’t know. I was going to think about doing solar, but it’s so much money. A commercial roof could be a million, two, three million dollars.” We show them how to do the project, how to get the project done. We’ll do your roof and you’re going to get that one million dollars back in one year. You don’t have to wait.  And this is one of the biggest things in this industry, in a solar industry.

I don’t care how big they are. They sub everything out. They got all kinds of crazy guys doing their own work. They don’t have their own people. In my head, they don’t know where they came from. One of the things that I do, that we do in our presentation for our commercial customers, especially the larger ones, we bring out the manufacturers with us. And one for the reasons that I’m bringing up the manufacturers, you know, you might not notice. I might look like I’m 50 or 60 years old, but I’m really like 97 which is a joke, but they’re always asking, “Well what happens if anything happens to you?” By the way, I have some of the largest, some of the most top companies in the country that are- they back up the warranties.

They’re there for a reason because if anything goes wrong, they were sitting at the meeting. They can be in our notes and they’re the best. They have the best products and the best warranties. In fact, I’ve been dealing with Bob whose going to be on very shortly and talk a little bit about their products and stuff. When I first did one of my first commercial projects, Bob was telling me about the roof and things. The roof that they do. I’ve been speaking to one of the top engineers from one of the top pharmaceutical companies, an energy expert for over 40 years. He’s retired now. He told me about the product.

Now Bob’s company will also talk about how they used to have 20-year warranties on some of the properties. And I believe because our system, our first system, unbalanced state of New Jersey, my first project because I didn’t think about putting rocks in someone’s roof, they now guarantee solar. They’re in every single show out there for 25 years, the same warranty that the panels are. Well, this stuff is extremely important and know how a solar system works from the electricity to the benefits to the accounting to the financial things and everything.

Eric : Yeah let’s talk about that in just a second. But again, you know what Ron was just talking about. If you are a business owner, if you own a warehouse, if you own a building and you’re thinking about putting on a new roof, we know how expensive it is to do that. Ron can walk you through how the solar system that he will incorporate into that project will pay for your roof, pay for your project, and then start making you money. Ron mentioned design and the build. That’s Ron’s background. And before we go any further, Ron, I think it’s important that people understand that you’re not a solar guy.

Ron: So it’s something real important that Eric just said there. By the way, I’ve been designing buildings and electric systems my whole life. So I look at it a whole different way. So like I can’t take the roof and put it on with a solar project, but like my accountants take the roof, they take the depreciation. By the way, we might be doing lighting, L.E.D. lighting for you. And we’ll take all the energy savings. We work in some companies we might be doing truck ports for them outside their property where they spend $300,000 a year to plow the things. We don’t do regular carports. We can design our own and cover the whole parking lot. The snow drops off somewhere else.

So when you take all of this… you know, I sit down with corporate accountants and things, we’re going to show you all the way and you’re never going to pay that money again. So you know what even if it costs more, you’re going to make so much more money off of our systems because of how we break it down, how we show you. Solar contractors don’t have a clue what I do. Some of the biggest solar contractors and developers in the state, in the country, their back- look at their backgrounds. They’re anything from HVAC contractors, roofers, chemical engineers, and on and on and on.

My background for 40 years is designing electric systems and designing buildings. That’s my job. So now for all my developer buddies and the people that I met out there and my whole career, I’m showing you… you get the- by the way every- I just look over and over again, the customer, the contractor. He could be an HVAC contractor. He could be a roofing contractor. There’s all these crazy benefits you get. Either you don’t know. Either they didn’t get trained or went to the proper classes or they’re taking your incentives. It doesn’t even supply houses to take all the incentives that you get.

Eric : And it’s the insanity is that you need to know about and take advantage of- that’s where the real money is. That’s where the real payoff is.

Ron : Absolutely. And by the way in every state has… Well, I’m from New Jersey, we do most of our work in New Jersey. We have New Jersey Clean Energy. And the problem is there’s two thousand pages through it. You know there’s a million little things in there and if you learn and no one does it like all. That’s like a big problem. You know. I’m right now, I’m designing buildings for people for they even start. Before they even touch their architects and stuff. So we’re designing buildings with roofs designed just for solar. You’re going to get more production out of your roof. We’re designing the buildings, this may sound crazy, with electric and heat and things. The more electric I put in your building, the more money you’re going to make.

And by the way, just take one step backwards. Eric and I kept saying warehouses. Warehouses are a very small user of electricity. You know? A lot of the warehouses we’re doing and their offices. They’re changing all their offices to heat. It’s a money- it’s making them money. The customers, let’s see how it really works. It’s great, but let’s flip over to the other side. Let’s talk about nursing homes, let’s talk about hotels. Let’s talk about what your business has to pay for all this electricity. You know it’s not a triple net lease, it’s nothing, and you got to pay all this. I can knock that out. If solar guys came to your industry, to your house, I’m sorry, to your building or your property and says, “Well, oh. I don’t think we can get it on here.”

 I will design something to get it on there. That’s the difference between me and them. By the way, I might not be the smartest guy in the world because they’re making a fast buck throwing these things on your roof and running. I’ll design all kinds of walkways. I’ll do everything architecturally pleasing for corporations. Whatever they want to do, I will do it and it’ll be energy efficient. It will pay for your mortgages, for your things. When you take all the numbers and combine them together, have an accountant to do this and show you all these ways you’re saving money. You know, I looked at a project in New York. I don’t really like going through the city too much in upstate New York. They’re electric bill. They got more money, in one year they had over $100,000 retrofit. In five years it paid- not only did it pay itself off in nine months, they made about $500,000 off of it.

Eric: Yeah and all these companies that are coming out that are trying to tell you they’re going to save you money. Ron is not going to promise to save you money. Ron is going to make you money. He’s going to make you a lot of money. If you call 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u or visit advancedsolarnj.com. That’s 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u. So you’re going to meet with Ron directly. Your business project, your commercial project is going to start with a complete energy audit. And that’s where the process begins. Then you and Ron are going to talk and then he’s going to design something for you. And then he’s going to come back with The Book of Ron. We like to call it The Book for Ron. It’s a big thick book. It literally spells out word for word, line for line everything that you talk about. You’re not going to get something scribbled on a piece of paper or some pie in the sky promises to save you money. He’s going to show you how you return and investment is going to pay off. And Ron I think that’s where some of these businesses, these companies get a little intimidated because you’re talking about a lot of stuff. You’re putting a lot of numbers out there, but you put every word of it in writing.

Ron : It’s in writing. It’s there for your accountant to see it. I mean I want them to review it. I want corporations. I want your engineers to look at it. You know, and it’s really going to make you a lot of money. The systems are unbelievable.

Eric : Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions is not going to throw a couple of panels haphazard up on your roof, walk away, and then you never hear from them again. All of your maintenance is included. They have some of the longest warranties and guarantees in the industry. Why wouldn’t you do this? You’re going to eliminate one of your biggest costs and you’re going to create an entirely new revenue stream for your business. Ron, this is a game-changer for any commercial venture.

Ron: It’s… like even the developers. You know? They could borrow more money off these systems. They are making more money off your projects. We’re eliminating the highest operating expenses that people have in the industry. You know, if you’re a manufacturer or anything else. Your prices could go down. You could stabilize. A lot of companies I read about they could go in a phone industry and things. The biggest companies out there in the state of New Jersey, they could never project their electric because it’s so crazy with how much it goes up and all kinds of… it’s just nutty. But guess what, if electric goes up, yours doesn’t. You know? All this is doing is it’s increasing the value of property, making you money. They can’t increase your property taxes. It’s a federal law. So, by the way, it’s just a plus plus plus. Or you could wait until they’re going to force you to do it. It’s coming down the line. It’s coming down the next five, six years. I guarantee you. If you don’t take advantage now, it’s going to get you later.

Eric : Yeah. And this is the perfect time because there are some tax incentives that are very generous that are going to be reduced after this year. So 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u. That’s 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u or advancedsolarnj.com. Go to Ron’s website. See some of the commercial projects that he has put together. Not only are these energy-efficient and part of the whole plan to be able to make you money, but they look great.

It’s going to improve the aesthetics of what you’re trying to do for your business or your commercial venture as well. And listen if you need a new roof, if you’ve been thinking about putting on a new roof, hang on because in just a couple of talk we’re going to talk with one of the nation’s leading roofing experts with decades of experience doing this and how it all pulls together for your project. 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u. 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u or advancedsolarnj.com. Back on The Energy Show with one of the nation’s leading roofing experts next.

[Commercial break ends]

[Music plays]

Eric : And we’re back on The Energy Show with Ron Urban, the founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. 855, sunny, the number 4, the letter u. That’s 855-SUNNY-4-U or advancedsolarnj.com. And we’ve been educating business owners this hour on how solar energy efficiency, the complete redesign, and build of your commercial building cannot only eliminate one of your biggest utility costs but can actually make you money. And one of the things we’ve talked about is the need for a new roof. A new roof can be prohibitively expensive. In just a moment, we’re going to talk to one of the nation’s leading roofing experts, but I think, Ron before we do that it’s important to understand how all of these things kind of incorporate into one another and how you look at different jobs and how you go to a business owner and say, “All right, so you need a new roof and you need a new lighting system and you need all of these other things.”  It’s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. All those pieces fit together to make you money.

Ron : So my years of experience and I’m always training somebody. We try to hire more… and especially in our commercial industry. We kind of consider ourselves as educators, not

salespeople. So my salespeople, educators, are always bugging me. They ask, “Please help us to be able to understand what you do and see what you do. So it’s kind of like a joke, I work for larger companies. When I work for a larger company, they’ll have- they’ll hire engineers. They’ll hire all kinds of crews to do audits under a building. So normally when I’m just talking to a customer for the very first time I’ll walk through their building. I’ll give you a quick example.

Not too long ago, I walked through a guy’s building. It was about 180,000 square feet. That’s like three football fields, whatever it was. So I walked through the building and when we got done, he told me, “When am I going to perform the energy audit?” I say, “Guess what, I’m done.” And then I saw my sales guy mouth drop. You know, I’ve been doing this so long. I design buildings. One of the reasons people say, “Why do you design a whole building with every inch of it?” First off when I build it, I know everything that’s wrong. I know how to build it. I know how to build it right. I know what every nut and bolt is. But when I’m walking through a building I can see right away the heating’s 25 years old. The roof deck is starting to rust; it needs a new roof. I mean, the lighting’s ancient, it’s obsolete. I go in the bathrooms. The toilets are leaking, they’re ninety years old. You know, there’s a lot of stuff you put together. And no one wants to take care of these expenses, you know?

Eric : And that’s your advantage by being design and build. That’s why we say all the time, Ron Urban is not a solar guy. Your background in design and build lets you look at these projects differently than any of these guys that are walking into your office or calling you on the phone or sending you, you know, stuff on social media.

Ron : You know, there’s something else too. I have some family that works for me. They kind of yell at me because I got- I’m a little overboard. I’m really passionate when I do. If we’re doing a project and something wrong with your building, half the time I’ll fix it and we’ll do it with no expense to you because it’s something in my brain I think I missed. But we really take a lot of pride in it. A lot of times when I’m with owners, the owners end up telling me, “Hey I need this, I need that. But probably the greatest thing and one of the best feelings I get… It’s like when I cook and people really like what I do. it makes you feel good. When I’m with building owners, they call me for years. “Ron, I got a problem with this. Ron, this… Can you help me with that?” And I do and I enjoy it. I really do.

So it’s kind of a passion of mine. But you’re cutting out about 10 middlemen. You’re cutting out a lot of costs here and there. You know, people think our systems are some of the most expensive out there, I have to laugh. So if you hire a solar contractor, he has to put a canopy on the side of your building to put more solar panels. Knock out your whole electric bill. I designed this. I design it, I fabricate it and I make it. None of them do that. Or there’s not many that do if I- nor did I ever see one. So that cuts your expense down. Everything we do. People ask me too, they say, “Hey Ron, we got this solar company. We’re waiting three and a half months to get this price from them.” Guess what if I look at your building normally before I get there I got to price and a book in my hand. You know it’s all done. We don’t have to wait for years and months for 50,000 people to review it or to do whatever they do. And our projects are normally 10 times better than anybody else’s.

Eric : And Ron is not subbing this out to subcontractors that you don’t know. They’re all part of the Advance Solar and Energy Solutions team. But we talked about roofs. And it is one of the single biggest expenses that a lot of industrial building owners or commercial building owners have to face and it’s a very scary cost, but there are ways that Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions can show you how the project will actually pay for itself. They’re not just throwing on some cheap roof. These are high quality, durable, warranted roofs. Better than almost anybody else in the industry. You might recognize the name Carlisle, one of the largest roofing companies in the US. Bob [Bearwasher] is the Carlisle roofing expert. He has over 30 years of experience and Ron, you and he go back a long time.

Ron  :  When I met Bob about 25 years ago through one of the pharmaceutical professional engineers that took care of our energy efficiency through buildings, some of the things have been passionate about my whole life. Bob got me turned on to a… the foam roofs, the silicone roofs. And I’m just going to touch base a little bit how important this is that we do and that no one else does in the industry. Not only are we solar contractors, we’re energy-efficient contractors. We look at your whole building. One of the cool things that we do is that we’ll install the roof for the customer. We guarantee everything.

We have a 25-year warranty on our panels and they uphold their roofing warranty the same as ours. They got the idea through one of our, I believe through one of our first projects that we did in Jersey City was an unbalanced system on a 160,000 square foot building. We’re going to actually save the customer 60% of his heating bill too because of the type of roof we put on. The crazy thing that we’re doing now in the industry, right now, is that it’s one-year depreciation. So its’ got one company, comes in, get money back, and then you’re going to be making money on your solar. And I’m just going to touch base and let Bob talk a little bit about his… from Carlisle, some of the things that they have and how great their systems really are.

Bob: Well thank you, Ronnie. Thanks for having me. I’ve been in the commercial roofing business for 28 years… and now with Carlisle Roof, Home, and Coatings, one of the largest manufacturers of roofing materials in the country. We specialize in liquid applied roofing and we like to think of ourselves as enablers for the solar, the rooftop solar industry by creating a long-term platform for them to place their panels onto. There are two variations of systems that we propose. One is, as Ron mentioned, polyurethane foam, a layer of that which is spray applied. And then coded with two to three coats of a high solid silicone coating, also spray applied or just spray-applied coatings which is a roof restoration system if the project is applicable for a system like that. By using the polyurethane foam, we’re adding tremendous insulation to the building. It is the best insulating material in the roofing industry. It’s seamless. It’s totally monolithic and works well in a variety of applications.

Rob : Some of the things that’s really important and I hear this every day from customers that’s always been around since 2003, right now in the industry. I’ll get a developer, a manufacturer comes to me, “Hey, I finally got a roof put up on my building.” You know, they should really call us first.  You know, I do presentations. Bob comes with me on a lot of our presentations. Something that’s extremely important for the solar, for your efficiency is a white roof. It helps your panels run more efficient. A white roof also knocks down some of your efficiencies in your building where it keeps it cool and you know using less air-conditioning and everything else.

So when people come to one of our seminars or we come out for a presentation, we really get in-depth. If it’s a larger scale company, I mean, we really welcome the engineers to be there. We’ll do a whole presentation. We have the manufactures with us.  And really one of Bob’s companies are truly one of the best in the industry.

Bob : As Ron mentioned, every case is different. It’s like I said, we want more solar panels out there. Renewable energy is on the rise. It’s an exploding industry for a lot of good reasons and we want to help encourage that technology. So by putting together a system on the roof that will enable more panels all for a long term warranty and do a lot of other things at a very, very competitively priced way. We’re going to enable that solar industry to explode even more.

Ron : One of the things in my background is that I became a developer in life and one of the things I met from all my developer buddies is no one ever wants to put a roof on their building. They’ll patch it. They’ll do this, they’ll do that. But right now you got one-year depreciation. You get your whole roof done. People squawk about the solar industry. We maintain it, besides install it and all your other warranties. The least of warranties you have as a business owner is 20 years, including maintenance. You don’t have to touch the system. We do it all. It’s included with the roof. You have a brand new roof on your building. So it’s a plus plus. You’re increasing the value of your building by many, many times over. It’s a huge thing.

You get every penny of your money back. It’s going to come back in like two to three years or so. Then you make money. Don’t be tricked by these giant companies out there that are trying to lease your systems and go through PPA’s and things like that. We will give you all the options. Your accountants… we like to do meetings with accountants and engineers in our meetings. They get what we get. In our book, it’s clearly stated out there. All the warranties, guarantees are in there. So, by the way, another huge thing with Carlisle and companies like Bob’s is that if we’re not here, people ask all the time, they take care of the warranty too. So it’s a joint kind of venture where it’s just a positive, positive plus in this industry and people really should call us first and get going and what they need. And we’ll really show them how it works.

Eric :  Bob [Bearwasher], one of the foremost roofing experts in the United States. 30 years of experience. And, you know, it gives you an idea of, Ron, of just, again, how all of these pieces have to fit together and there is nobody out there in the solar industry, these so-called solar companies that are going door to door that can do that. Nobody else does that.

Ron : You know, the things that I do and what I learn through guys like Bob and through some of the top engineers in the country and things. So you have a giant building. The building needs a two, three, four million dollar roof. We demonstrate to people when we take that roof off and put a new roof on, we just cut your heating and air-conditioning bills down 60%. It’s written. It’s documented all over. That’s less energy than everything else. When I first started this industry, overseeing this New Jersey Clean Energy, the head technical director came and worked for us and he was just so inspired by us. Why would he come to a little company like us? Because he believed in what I do. Energy efficiency should be- the government should have made energy efficiencies first. By the way, if I cut all your energy down you got half the price for your solar project. So we’re just-  just want- if you understand how we look at projects like anyone else. I’m not going to sit here and talk for five hours for every solar company try to mimic and try to copy what we’re doing and they can’t because it’s 40 years of experience.

Eric : Well and it’s the experience of the Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions that really truly makes the difference. 855-SUNNY-4-U. That’s 855, sunny, the number four, the letter u. Are you sold on the idea yet? When we come back we’re going to go over how old solar can truly pay for itself. And if you’re a business that has a high tax appetite, the time to call is now.

[Music Plays]

Eric: We’re back on The Energy Show with Ron Urban, founder, and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Ron is not a solar guy. His decades of experience in design and build and energy efficiency is what’s going to make a difference for your business. If you own a business going solar, going through Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions from the design and build phase to the completed project, it’s a game-changer. Tax benefits, increasing your cash flow, the value of your building. It’s all part of the Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions plan to get you into a space where you are making money. Now, Ron, we haven’t talked a lot about the tax implications, but… especially with a lot of the companies that you deal with in New Jersey. We all know what the taxes are like in New Jersey. Tax benefits to these projects can be huge.

Ron: You know, tax benefits and their highest operating expenses combined. So let’s just talk real quick and let’s talk some scary numbers out there to people. Say a job is $1 million. So what the building owners really need to know and the developers is that in one year, after the first year, our booklets will demonstrate that to you. Prove to you, show your account and how it works. You’re going to get half or a little bit more of that money back in one year. A residential, sorry, a commercial project could be two-year payback. Sometimes a little less, sometimes a little bit more. It all depends on roofs and things like that, everything else and how it happened, where you’re at, where you’re located.

So the biggest thing that I try and I try to explain to people too. I don’t care if its residential or commercial, I’m kind of laughing. Like people are like, “What do I got to lay out? What am I going to get back? What am I getting?.” Well, boom boom. But there’s not a dime that you’re paying back to pay this system off. Our books demonstrate, because we don’t take any of your profits, we don’t take any of your incentives, we don’t take any of the bonuses that you’re going to get. It’s all yours. So in- normally you’re just going to… by the way, you have no electric bill. If you have a building and a building has a $100,000 a year electric bill, we eliminate that electric bill. There’s other things you need to think about too. Your building is now worth $100,000 more.

Eric: But I think that’s where, you know, where some of these other solar companies… they come in and say, “Oh you got a $100,000 electric bill. We’re going to save you 15% on your electric bill.

Ron : They could be 15%. By the way, some might even go all the way up to 90 or 100%, but then they’re taking- telling you how to finance it, taking your [inaudible 33:52]. They’re taking your 30%. I tell people this all the time when I do seminars. If they’re taking anything, if they’re being your buddies and helping you and taking you anything, you are getting ripped off. I have to say this and it’s kind of cracking me up lately. More and more, the utility companies are getting into solar.

Eric : I’ve been seeing that, yeah. Yeah.

Ron : And just really think hard about how much you love your utility company. Is that utility company really out there to give you money back or is he trying to figure out how to make more money himself? There’s a lot of utility companies out there backed up by these giant leases and things like that, you know. And they just do it to make more money and it sounds good. People- this is probably the worst thing whether you’re a commercial project or a residential project. I hear this every day. “Well, you’re not that big. Look what the big giant guys are doing. You know so and so, he builds cars. He does this.” I say, “Go with him. Go ahead. They’re taking your money. They figured out a way to get their money. A lot of them are even backed up. Their companies got a ton of money from the government. They’re just there to take your money.”

Eric : And look at how many of these companies have already gone bankrupt. When the big push was on for solar, you know, in New Jersey and elsewhere, you know, you had companies on every street corner coming in saying, “We’re going to give you free solar! And it’s going to be free this and free that.” Find them now.

Ron : And one of the biggies with the larger companies out there. I get called all the time. I’m not going to say the names, but pharmaceutical companies call me. I went out to a winery not long ago. And I look at these projects. They’re telling me, “Yeah we got the biggest maintenance contract in the world with so and so and this guy and that guy. Look at their systems. They’re not even working right. They’re paying these guys. By the way, the paddle broke by a tree. It’s two years now. Are you kidding me? By the way, I looked at a friend of ours. He owns a winery. He has two different systems. One system I found out hasn’t worked for six years.

He’s one of those giants that if you don’t use them and they take care of it because you’re leasing it or whatever you’re doing, your PPA’s or whatever. I’ll show you how to make money. By the way, if you’re a nonprofit, if you’re doing other things, even large corporations something called power purchase agreement out there. So you don’t qualify for the 30% or you don’t have the tax appetite. Let’s figure something out real simple and real easy. So you’re listening to these guys, “Well we could take the 30%.” Guess what? They do take the 30%. You don’t get a dime of it. I’ll show you if you are a nonprofit or whatever you’re doing without the 30%, you still make money off our projects. And you own the system.

So when you own the system, it increases the value of your house- your business, I’m sorry. And you get all the benefits. So it’s a big trick. It’s a big game. We have a new solar project now. Community, solar, everything else. They’re all made for the big guys. Period. So when you talk to us, we’re going to show you how it really works. How you get the benefits whether your nonprofit, whether you’re a profit for profit. You may have to spread out your taxes a little bit what you’re allowed to do.

So there’s a lot, a lot to this system and a lot of knowledge that you need to know. I made my booklets originally when solar first came out because I know the owners that I talk to, I am a developer, I am an owner, that they have five minutes to listen to you. If they don’t get it, I just say give it to your accountant. If your accountant can’t attend. 99.9% times the accountant says, “This is a good investment.” A lot of times I can’t even get to an accountant because solar’s no good.

Eric : Right.

Ron : Because they only thought you get a PPA, a lease, or whatever. You got to be kidding me.

Eric : Yeah. That is true. I’ve seen it happen time and time again when Ron and I have been out and we talk to commercial business owners. Everybody from warehouses to restaurants. The Book of Ron where he spells out everything, word by word, line by line. These aren’t just some pie in the sky promises that you’re going to get here. This literally will be in writing. It’s a big thick book and it’s gonna show you your return on investment and how you’re going to make money. It’s designed to be brought to your accountant. Let your accountant look at it. Let your accountant ask questions. Let your accountant try to poke holes in it. This is what the other guys aren’t going to give you. They aren’t going to spell it all out for you. And I can tell you from personal experience.

Because long before Ron and I teamed up to start educating people on solar, I was a residential customer from Ron. Ron came out to my house. I thought it sounded too good to be true. I took his Book of Ron that he made for me to people in the financial industry, to CPAs that I respected saying, “You know, there’s got to be something wrong here. It doesn’t sound right. Every single one of them came back and said, “I- I- We can’t find anything wrong with it.” And l will tell you that not only did Ron meet and exceed every promise made in The Book of Ron, but I’ve been energy independent with a $0 electric bill now for what Ron, three years? Three years now?

Ron : Three years.

Eric : And I get a check every month. I am making money. I took a $750 electric bill, just in a residential home which is now 0, plus I’m getting a check every month. Real money and the value of my home is increased. Now he can do that for my home think of what Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions can do for your business. Get your energy audit. Meet with Ron. He’ll come out and take a look at your building and he’ll tell it to you straight. 855-SUNNY-4-U. 855, sunny, the number four, the letter u or visit it advancedsolarnj.com to learn more. Take a look at some of Ron’s projects. Give him a call. Schedule an appointment. Ron’ll come out. He’ll meet with you personally. You’ll get your own big Book of Ron. Take it to your accountant. Ask your accountant, “Show me how this doesn’t make me money.” If a solar company calla you on the phone and says they can save you money, that’s a scam. If Ron tells you he can make you money, you’re going to have a new revenue stream for your business. You’re listening to The Energy Show. We’ll be back in a minute

Eric : Back on the Energy show where we dispel the myth and the misinformation about going energy independent and tapping into the true power of the sun. And for your business, this creates an entirely new revenue stream to support your business and improve your bottom line. Call 855, SUNNY, the number four, the letter u or visit advancedsolarnj.com to learn more. Once again with Ron Urban, the founder, and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. And if you’ve listened to the show for any period of time by now, you know that Ron certainly doesn’t lack energy in anything that you do Ron. And you know, how do you have that energy to just keep going like the Energizer bunny?

 Ron : Well when we’re talking about the business end of it, I really believe in what I do. I love what I do. When it comes to my fitness and things like that, it’s kind of crazy. I’m a New Jersey guy. I actually go all the way to New York to Tough Love Co, New York, NYC fitness. Which Joey, he’s sitting here with me. And one of my favorite drinks out there is Lion tea. It’s all-natural. It’s made out of dandelions. It’s excellent. It’s one of the newest, hottest teas, I think, out in the market. It’s great for your- especially people that are healthy. It’s excellent for your liver and everything else. It cleanses your body and it tastes really good. So right now, I’m actually sitting here with Joey and he can talk a little bit about each one of those things.

Eric : So Joey you’re responsible for the Ron Urban that we get to see and enjoy every day.

Joey : That’s right.

[laughs]

Joey : Correct, correct.

Eric : So dandelions? How do you make a tea out of dandelions? My grandfather used to make dandelion wine.

Joey : Okay, well yeah well finding enough… that’s… with dandelion wine, they use the flowers primarily.

Eric : Okay.

Joey : Interestingly, what we do a tea is we do a tea made from the leaves, flowers, and the entire plant. The root as well. So ultimately the reason for that is because each part of the dandelion has specific health benefits. Mostly what we focus on is the prebiotic element of them for the root which is much higher at certain times of the year. That is extremely important from fiber perspective because it’s basically an insoluble fiber. It also feeds your body’s natural probiotics, so it’s ultimately like a fertilizer for your gut. So what they’re finding now, clinically is primarily in a weight loss and in energy overall your body’s functioning as a whole, as one unit. It’s very much based on the premise of how healthy gut bacteria or your bacteria in your gut are. And so dandelions really contribute to that. They also contribute to the detoxification of your livers and kidneys. So that’s really big in terms of keeping a clean, healthy body to, you know, allow you to actually have the energy to keep on keeping on.

Eric : Yeah so it’s Lion tea, L I O N, like dandelion-

Joey : Like dandelion tea.

Eric : What turned you on to dandelion? Did you eat dandelion salad? Did you drink dandelion wine? I mean, what- I mean, I try to get rid of them out of my yard. You’re trying to figure out how to make a drink.

Joey : Actually, what ultimately it was my business partner at the time, [Raymen DiRoso] actually… He’s actually of Greek descent. His mother would make it for him, you know when he was younger. He had actually developed a hereditary, degenerative eye condition of the optic nerve called Leber’s disease. And ultimately his mother put them on this regimen of dandelion tea which seem to somehow, you know, contribute to reversing the effects of this condition. You know, they- the doctor continued to just, you know, kind of advise him to do whatever he was doing, to keep doing it which was drinking this dandelion tea concoction.

And ultimately what led him to, you know, what lea him to start the business, what led him to actually create the concept was the success of this. At the same time, his friends were finding this product in the fridge and they were young. They were trying to cure their hangovers and they found that it was great for actually curing their hangovers because of the detoxification property.

Eric : So yeah there is a lot of talk about making sure that you have a healthy gut, that you have the probiotic advantages that you have. You know, because everything seems to start, you know, in your gut. And this Lion tea kind of helps put everything back into really where it should be, right? Yeah.

Joey : Correct. Yes, yes. So I mean, ultimately, you know, right now, flowers are, and you know, botanicals are a big space in the beverage space. You know, they’re finding a lot of interesting, you know, medicinal properties that as a whole these things are holding for people. But dandelion specifically just acts as an overall, you know, cleanser, detoxifier, energizer, and ultimate aid.

Ron : So does that mean on a weekend, I can drink more alcohol?

[laughs]

Eric : Well he does- he did say that it cures a hangover, right?

Joey ; I cannot confirm or deny anything.

Eric : I’m talking with Joey from Lion tea. Where do you find this stuff?

Joey : Right now you can find it on Amazon. They launched out in L.A. about two or three months ago, so it’s available in L.A. It’s available in New York City, primarily the natural, organic space is really where you’ll find it. At Fairways, you’ll find it in Fairways as well. So, you know, and then online or on the website liontea.com.

Eric : Alright.

Joey : Yep.

Eri: That’s pretty incredible. And Ron, you know, I mean, I can attest. You never lack any kind of, any kind of energy. [laughs] You must be drinking gallons of this stuff.

Ron : But I also work out with Joey. He’s an excellent trainer. He’s got a huge business here in the Brooklyn area and Tough Love Co, NYC  is a great company. And if you’re looking to get fit that’s the man to call.

Eric : Yeah. What kind of trainer are you, Joey?

Joey: I focus primarily on strength training. I just finished a course in corrective exercises as well because I find that ultimately to prime the body to, you know, function correctly, you know, you need to preemptively ensure that your joints, your muscles, everything is balanced or are balanced, excuse me. You know, so at the end of the day, preventative measures in the fitness space are extremely important, no matter what fitness level you’re on. So primarily I would call it, you know, corrective exercise, strength training, and intensity. That’s kind of what I focus on personally.

Eric : Yeah and your Tough Love Co NYC. That’s interesting because you know, you don’t hear an awful lot about preventative training. You know? It’s- It’s usually here’s where you are and here’s where I can take you and you know, you push it as far as you can go. A lot of people when that happens, they wind up getting hurt and then they just don’t to go back to it.

Joey : 100%. Yeah, I find that even experienced fitness professionals or people that are very, you know, are personally, on their own personal level, you know, very well fit, if you will. There are often times many things that they don’t understand from a functional perspective on that can greatly improve their gains in the gym more, you know, their ability to focus on a specific muscle especially the, you know, the glutes

Eric : Yeah.

Joey : Which is really a big point of concern for most people because we turn them off so often when we sit down.

Eric : Yeah.

Joey : Often times people will try to work one muscle specifically and they will it will be unsuccessful because you know muscles work in pairs, not just singly or as single, you know, driver. So what you’ll find is that if you don’t reactivate that that muscle in specific ways or you know, turn off other muscles that have become overactive, you won’t get the results you’re looking for. So it really is a science, you know? And that kind of what I’ve been focused on. It’s almost like, more like an approach like smart training.

Eric : And how do people find you at Tough Love?

Joey : Right now we’re busy redoing the website, so ToughloveCoNYC.com would be where you would be going to, otherwise, you can reach out to me at Joey@ToughloveCoNYC.com.

Eric : Alright and then come and train with you personally?

Joey : 100%. Yep, Yeah. I do a lot of in-home, private training. I have a studio in a Green Point Brooklyn as well on West Street, 67 West Street. So they can reach out to me.

Ron : I just wanna throw in, after the show, Eric and I are going to infuse Lion tea with vodka.

[laughs]

Joey : Sounds good.

Eric : Does it blend well too? Does it blend well with vodka and gin?

Joey : Yeah.

Eric : You know, what do you recommend that you mix-

Joey : Funnily enough, there’s some interesting mixes, you got- you know?

[laughs]

Joey : Crack it up and smack it down.

Eric: That’s a whole other show I’m sure. Alright well Joey, creditor blame to you. Lion Tea and Tough Co NYC for giving Ron all of his energy on The Energy Show. Thanks for stopping by and having a chat with us.

Joey : No worries, thanks for having me.

Eric : So, you know, Ron as we’re wrapping up, you know, this hour again we’ve talked an awful lot of this hour about fueling your business, about making sure that your business runs efficiently, that you have the energy to run your business. And I think business owners still don’t really realize because of all the cacophony of noise with some of these solar scams and energy scams they have out there what the true advantage to solar and how it was really designed to work.

Ron : Solar is, to me, one of the greatest investments you could get in your property or building.

You know, there’s so many scams that are taking things from you. I think for building owners to really understand, it’s an investment in your building. You’re investing in your building. You’re upgrading your building. You have a whole new source of revenue in your building. Ours- And there’s so many companies out there know nothing about solar, selling solar, commercial solar, and getting into it.

There’s, I think this is where there’s getting to be a bad rap more and more in the industry. People like me with my background on electrical design and commercial building design, it’s huge for the builders, for developers, for store owners, for high consumers of electricity, you know? As you heard a little earlier today, Bob is one of the biggest roofing manufacturers commercial roofing manufacturers, you know? So when you combine all this… people never want to do a commercial roof. You’re getting your money back for your roof in one year. You got a whole new electrical system.

What regular developers need to know, that just- that are really into their warehouses or whatever, we’re increasing your square foot price. It blows your mind. My first job, we tried to find a 160,000 warehouse. We tried to get the owner to understand. We had to speak to his attorneys who weren’t the right people in my head. It’s really the accountants. The accountants were kind of for it. And what my accountants said to their accountant and to their father to this huge company is to think about it this way. If your building is empty, you’re getting a dollar a square foot with an empty building. This is what they research. This is what they looked at. Once again, if you use Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, we take care of maintenance. We take care of all the products, everything. For twenty years there’s nothing you have to touch. So it’s just like you’re renting your building like a triple net lease. You got us, You don’t have to touch anything. Everything’s done. You collect the money

Eric : Yeah and unlike other so-called solar companies, Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, you’re going to deal… if you’re a business, you’re a commercial builder, you own a warehouse, you’re going to deal directly with Ron. Ron’s going to come meet with you. He’s going to give you the big Book of Ron. Everything is literally spelled out, word by word, line by line. And we challenge you to take it to your accountant. Look at the book.  Look at what’s spelled out. Try to poke holes in it. You’re not going to be able to do it.

Ron :  It’s… the book is made for building owners. It stays the same since the day I started when solar came around in the state of New Jersey and it’s really there to prove it. I mean, I hear people… the toughest thing in this industry that I see whether it’s a commercial job or a residential job which I’ll talk about to talk about soon, is that you don’t know what’s in that book. You know, I had a commercial customer of mine big guy, his father got solar and when I went through the lease, he wanted me to show it to his attorney, one of the largest attorneys in the state. I had to sit with the attorney, explain to him what is the lease is really saying.

So when he saw it, he almost had a heart attack. He says this is unbelievable. All these giant companies out there whether it’s commercial or residential, they have a way to scam you and a way you’ll never know. One of the things we do is we review every quote. We’ll review your customers, our competitors’ quotes. If they’re better than us we’ll tell you to go ahead and do it. Now you got an engineer. You got an accountant, and you got people seasoned in the industry to tell you what you’re really getting. But there’s a lot of hidden costs and a lot of ways to take your rebates. Our customers get it all. We don’t save you money. We make you money. You’re going to make a lot of money off your building.

Eric : Yeah it’s worth it to call 855, SUNNY, the number four, the letter U or advancedsolarnj.com. Learn more. Learn how solar is supposed to work and how it can truly revolutionize your business. This has been The Energy Show. Thanks for listening.

E4 Energy

Announcer (s) : This is going to give you the energy to go on It’s the energy show. I love the energy. Here’s your host, Ron Urban.

[Music plays]

Eric Scott: Welcome to The Energy Show with Ron Urban, founder, and president of Advanced

Solar and Energy Solutions, one of the nation’s leading experts on energy efficiency, solar design, design and build. And again over the next hour, we’re going to tell you how solar should really work and why so many so-called solar companies are just running a scam to essentially steal your money. Solar can be one of the best investments you will ever make in your home. And long before I joined Ron in educating people about solar one right, I was a customer. Ron educated me about everything before I signed anything. He showed me how the system that I bought from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions would pay for itself and make me money.

 I’m in the middle of another summer with zero electric bill. I used to have a utility bill of $650 a month in my home and that wasn’t even running the air conditioning full blast. My house was set at 74. I was still paying $650 a month. Now my fiancé sets the air conditioning at 68, it doesn’t move and I don’t care because I don’t pay a dime for it. And I get a check every month. Saving money, make money. That’s what Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions can do. And Ron I see it on my Facebook. I see it on my Twitter. I get guys coming to ringing my doorbell, door to door, seems almost every night. I get the Robocalls. I get the telemarketing calls. All of these solar companies are telling me, “Hey, I can save you money.”

Ron Urban : You know, it’s kind of like crazy, especially in a residential end of it because to me, in my head, they are so robbing every single customer out there. You know, I get these crazy things every day after day… By the way, something that’s huge that I do, I hire people. I hire people in the industry and its kind of crazy. Recently we’re were having an employee- a new potential employee came into work for us. Two days later it’s- or the day later, I got a letter from the last guy that he worked for from his attorney. His attorney is going, blasting me that he’s going to come get me. And he wants to see what information he gave. Boom, boom.

First off, I’m old. He must be a millennial [Eric laughs] and by the way, I would like to tell those guys from that company, “You’re wasting your money and your attorney is really jacking you pretty around. But I have to tell you this. I buy, and I sent them in just a little note back I’m sure my attorney would tell me never to do something like this, I personally would never, never practice the business practices of any large solar company. I take pride- people said I’d never make it in this industry when we got into the- I’m a commercial guy, but when I got into the residential, you’re not gonna make a dime because it’s not free. I saw how they were ripping people off and stealing their money. That’s my opinion and I really feel that. And what you’re doing I don’t think is illegal, but I swear it’s truly one of the most unethical things I’ve ever seen in my life.

Eric :  Yeah solar was supposed to work the way that we’re talking about. And unfortunately

what you had as you have a lot of these so-called solar companies show up. Now you have the utility companies that are getting involved and everybody’s coming in and telling you that this is free and it’s going to save you money. In most cases, it’s a leased system, Ron, and what is it that you that your grandmother used to say?

Ron : You know what I thought- I do seminars. What did your father tell you you’re getting for free?

Eric : Right.

Ron : And, by the way, whatever they told you, multiply by 100 when it comes to the solar industry.

Eric : Yeah, yeah.

Ron :  One of the things I love too as people come up to me, “Well I told a solar company about what you said. They said they could sell to me.” I said, “Go ahead and buy it from them. They’re going to rip you off, steal all your money. Now they’re going to it to you.” “We’ll my mother leased it from them.” “Wait a minute. They robbed your mother. [Eric laughs] They did that. Now they’re going to tell you how to buy a system. So do you believe them? By the way, anything that they do, anything, and… you know, this is going to really blow your mind, we don’t- we’re going to teach you how to get your own money.  You keep the ezrack. You’re going to understand what ezrack is. They don’t know. You can get ezrack from whoever you want. They don’t- They’re not going to tell you this.

You know what this, we’re the honest guys. Plus our warranties and guarantees. I get guys challenge me, customers, after customer. “Well, a solar guy told me this.” “Let’s call him up.” I’ve actually challenged a residential customer where I was looking at his commercial property where he wanted to start with three houses. His, his daughter’s, and I believe it was his son. When he was telling me that the top- one of the biggest companies in the state were going over there. Boom boom. He said, “Oh well, they’re giving you exactly what he’s giving you.”  I say, “Really?” I said, “I tell you what. Let’s sit down in your kitchen table. I’ll bet you one of the houses, $50,000 if I ask them five questions that they lied to you.” “Oh no. It’s my son’s friend. He’s like [inaudible 5:08] our body for 100 years. Blah Blah Blah.” Guess what? We call them up. The first question, he says, “You know,  I got 20 years maintenance, correct. [inaudible 5:17]

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : Well you got 20 years of a [monitoring]. I hung up the phone. I said what are you going to do? The problem with the solar industry, especially in a residential end of it. You don’t have a clue what they’re telling you. 99% of the guys, the kids they train to come out there and show you and tell you what it’s been are knocking on your door. Are you kidding me? They’re- what do they know? Zero. They know nothing about the industry. They know nothing about the money- well the big cut… the bosses do. They know they’re just taking you for their money, including the utility companies and everybody else out there.

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : And I just want to go backward. After our last show, I got people calling me. You know, we’re really hoping the show’s going to take off in six months, whatever. But I got people calling, wondering. One of the weirdest things I get, all the time, we’re in radio in New Jersey all the time, is “how could you help me get this off my roof or whatever?”

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : But I want to just say something. The state of New Jersey, the utility company, I’m not only

talking electric companies or lots of them. They have separate companies when we get it. I have a guy call me, sounds like the nicest guy in the world. He just keeps calling me. He says, “You got to come out and look at my system. I did a ground mount system. The other guys don’t do it.” By the way, we’ll build you ground mound. We’ll build you a farm. We’ll build you a shed. We’ll build you a new house if you want, designed all with solar. But the point of the thing is the guy says, “Well I don’t know if I got benefits. I got the ezracks, but don’t know how to get them. Can you come show me how to get them?” I say, “What about your solar company?” “Well, it’s the big utility call me.” “What are you talking about?” The guy told me to come over nine months for them before when he signed a contract to come out.

Listen to me in the solar industry and look what they’re doing. There’s guys now telling you, “You better get your solar on your roof today because after the first of the year, you’re not gonna get the 30% and you’re not going to qualify for your money.” Our normal project from the day we get a deposit on your house is usually a month and a half. We just did a job in Bricktown, New Jersey because the town gave us our paperwork really fast back. Usually, it’s a month. They give it back to us in three weeks. The customer was done, up and running in 3 1/2 weeks. I get complaints that we’re slow. It’s like the biggest joke in the industry. Your systems are done the fastest and, by the way, they are the best installs in the state. I’ll guarantee it. We do commercial installs, not residential.

The reason why I do it: your pipes bigger, your screws are stainless steel, everything is better. You know why? Because I’m giving you maintenance for 20 years. I don’t want to have to go back. They don’t care. They’re out of business. By the way, the giants, they’re probably, I would guess, every 100,000 installs, they got about 68,000 complaints. The biggest complaint is they don’t come back. “Well, I leased it. They got to come back.” Guess what? They make 6, 700% profit on your project. They got 200,000 more. I just got one of the biggest companies out there customers’ told me to fix something for them. I said, “You’re getting me qualified by them because they don’t come out and fix their stuff.” Are you kidding me? You can pick the big guys, go ahead. It’s like going to the utility company and saying, “Here’s my checkbook. Charge me whatever you want.”

Eric : As you can tell Ron is incredibly passionate about this because so much misinformation is out there about the solar industry. So let me tell you now everything that Ron is talking about is in writing. We call it the Book of Ron. He came out and spelled everything out for me. I called 855, Sunny, the number four, the letter U. Website is advancedsolarNJ.com. If anybody is promising that they can save you money before you sign anything, call Ron. Ron will review your lease agreement and tell you where there are problems. And then he’ll show you in writing with the industry’s longest warranties and guarantees how your system is going to pay for itself and then make you money. Don’t fall for the ‘I can save you money’ scam. There are tax incentives right now. Some of them are going to be reduced at the end of the year, Ron. So there is a legitimate reason why you need to call now and get your appointment scheduled and get in the pipeline for this installation. And if you can qualify for a lease, then you’re going to be able to qualify for a loan on your system, but your system isn’t going to pay off.

Ron : So my whole life I’ve been doing commercial installations. I have a customer who’s probably a billionaire. He sent me a copy because I read the leases for commercial properties. I’m not a lawyer, but when I read the lease I kind of like blew my mind. I say, “Well all these commercials saying that you can lease, you can lease it.” If you qualify for a lease, you could qualify for a loan. By the way, most of the solar loans there’s 1.5%, 2%, you think that’s great. When you dig into them, dig around 30%.

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : So they got a different way to rip you off. One of the power companies in New Jersey will give you a loan for 12% and all kinds of other fees and stuff involved. Whether- we would point all this out in our book. Everything is in there. So when people try to tell us, or they show… so far I’ve seen contracts, leases probably from every single company out. The larger companies and when I show people, they can’t believe it. And, by the way, I’m not reducing your electric like a lease. You got a zero electric bill. By the way, when you lease solar, you can’t sell your house! if there’s a lease on there.

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : And what they’re going to tell you when they’re sitting down at your table, they’re going to go like this, “Well I just sign off to the next guy.” Ahhnt. That’s the biggest mistake and you’re not going to get. By the way, when you sell your house, you can’t sell it. My way: you house sell your house, it makes more money from the very minute you put on. If you saved $3,000 last year on the electric, your house is worth $30,000 more. Pretty darn simple.

Eric : Yeah.

Ron : And that’s the way it’s really supposed to work. So if you want to go with those guys, layout no money, whatever he’s telling you, it’s just… to me, it’s the biggest… I just can’t explain to you how it fires me up.

Eric: Yeah. You can hear Ron’s passion for doing solar right. You really can and should be tapping into the power of the sun. Go energy independent. Eliminate your electric bill. Make money. Yes, all of it is possible. If you don’t fall for the scam that’s being perpetrated by some of these leasing companies that are calling you on the phone and knocking on your door. Call 855, Sunny, the number four, the letter U. 855-SUNNY-4-U or visit advancedsolarnj.com to learn more. And different than a lot of these other leasing companies, this system that Ron is going to put on your house is going to look better.

When they installed my system, they moved all of my stacks. They moved all of my vents so that I have a uniform look. It doesn’t look like somebody just stuck Legos on your roof.

[Commercial break ends]

[Music Plays]

Eric : On The Energy Show we just dispel the myths and misinformation about going energy independent and truly tapping into the power of the sun. For a homeowner how’d you like zero electric bill? How’d you like to make real money? All of it is possible if you don’t fall for the scam that’s being perpetrated by the so-called solar companies. And Ron, you know, it’s almost like they come out like locusts. They’re knocking on everybody’s door it seems every night saying, “Hey, we can save you money.”

Ron : It’s a shame. It really is that they- I mean they’re just bombarding the industry and I just think it’s terrible what they do to homeowners.

Eric : Yeah and really if homeowners understood, if people really understood the power of the sun, they would understand that that is not the way that solar works. Let’s talk to Steven Clark. Steven, I know you are one of Ron’s customers. Where is your home?

Steven : In Eatontown, New Jersey.

Eric : Alright.  So you’re in Eatontown. And how did you hear about  Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions?

Steven : I looked them up on the Internet and then sent them an email and a Ron came over to the house.

Eric : Were you surprised that the founder and president of this company showed up to meet with you personally?

Steven :  Absolutely. Certainly was. He’s a great guy.

Eric : Yeah and did you do research on residential solar before you either called Ron or before you decided to go with him?

Steven : I had other companies come. Unfortunately, they were all pushing the same thing of leasing.

Eric : And Ron was different from the- from the first time you shook his hand, wasn’t he?

Steven : Absolutely. Gave me information on everything, then showed me the pros and cons. It was really easy. Simple.

Eric :  Yeah and you got a copy of Ron’s big Book of Ron.

Steven : Absolutely.

Eric : Everything is spelled out in that book?

Steven : Everything with no problem and it’s true to the word, what he says. I have to admit.

Eric : Yeah. So did he meet every one of the promises that he spelled out in writing for you?

Steven : Absolutely.

Eric : Yeah.

Steven : In fact, they monitor my system and told me my Internet was having a problem a few months ago.

Eric : [laughs] So, you know, that’s funny. When Ron did a system for me on my home, one of my panels was off. I wouldn’t have known that one of my panels was off. They- I came home one day, they were on my roof. They swapped it out. They said, “Hey, you had a bad panel.” How would I have known that?

Steven : Exactly.

Eric : Yeah. It’s- I mean it’s interesting. And how does it look on your home?

Steven : It’s great. I was able to put mine on the backside, but it’s all uniform. There’s nothing… there’s no ugliness to it. They ran the wire, the piping up the side, so there’s not any ice or anything.

Eric :  Yeah it’s- You can almost tell or I can now. You probably can too now Steven. And when you drive around it. it’s a system that it  Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions did because it doesn’t look like somebody just stuck a bunch of Legos up on top of the roof.

Steven : Yeah, that’s true. We have one in our cul-de-sac that looks that way.

Eric : Yeah, right. Yeah I mean, that’s important. It’s for the aesthetic value. So let’s get down to the real, most important thing, I guess Steven. How’s your electric bill these days?

Steven : Oh I don’t have one. I have to pay a tax to New Jersey. I think it’s $2.34 or something.

Eric : Of course you do. Of course you do. Yeah well that’s- so Ron didn’t save you money off your utility bill, did he?

Steven : Oh no, I’m making money.

Eric : Right, right. So you get all of the ezrack. You get all of that. So let me understand, Steven. You have no electric bill and you’re getting a check for the electricity that you’re generating?

Steven : Exactly. Monthly.

Eric : Monthly, right. So Steven, you know, for the folks that are listening, that are kind of on the fence about this whole thing. and you know it sounds too good to be true, what do you tell them?

Steven : No it isn’t too good to be true. It absolutely works for me and I am I’m a product of it. I’m making a realization of the lease $3,000 a year.

Eric :  Yeah, yeah. I mean that’s a huge cash flow, especially in a high tax state like New Jersey. I don’t know what your property taxes are in Eatontown, but I certainly can use that hope in my town.

Steven :  Absolutely.

Eric :  All right Steven Clark. Thanks very much. Another satisfied customer of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Thank you very much for taking the time to talk to us. So, you know, I mean Ron, this is… we talked how many of your educated customers, whether they’re commercial, whether they’re residential saying that yeah I have no electric bill. Zero. No electric bill.

Ron :  You know what? Our customers get the true value of what we do, but if you see, if you heard what Steven said something really important. So if you take a lease or some of these things, if you look at your whole thing, you’re going to save maybe $3,000 in 25 years. He makes $3000 a year. He has a really small system on his house. [inaudible 21:10] But if you multiply that out right there, he made $75,000 off of this house.

Eric : Right. Right.

Ron : Period. He said no electric bill. $75,000.  You guys sell your house, you make a ton of money on it. Period. People say sometimes when I do seminars, “Well I know leasing is really bad, so what if I sell my house and the guy doesn’t want solar on my house?” I hate to tell you this. I shouldn’t even say this on the air. I say, “Tell the guy to go pound salt. You find somebody smart enough to buy a house with no electric bill.”

Eric :  Well and a smart realtor is going to be able to take advantage of that because of the value of your home. My home’s of $30,000. It has been appraised more than $30,000      after the system that I bought from you.

Ron : Residential realtors hate leases. They don’t even want to touch homes. They are shying away from them now. It’s not- you’re only saving you a fraction of your money. It’s real difficult to get off. And, by the way, this is- by the way, if you’re in a lease right now, if you signed up for a lease and they didn’t put this on your house, get out.

Eric : [crosstalk]

Ron : You’re allowed to get out. You’re allowed to get out until the son of a guns, until the day they put the first nail in your room. They can argue with you. They could say anything they want, but get out. By the way, if you don’t buy it from me, buy it from somebody else or just don’t do it. Because you are in big trouble. A lot of people nearest come 5, 10 years from now are exiting our lovely state because our lovely taxes and everything else. But guess what, you’re not going to be able to sell your house. It’s almost like you got double, triple, and you think there’s an exiting tax. That’s the hugest exiting tax you’ll ever face in your life is trying to get that solar off your roof from these monsters. Definitely always buy a system. Buy for me.

Eric : Yeah. Buy it from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. 855-SUNNY-4-U. That’s 855, S U N N Y, the number four, the letter u or advancedsolarnj.com. I know it sounds too good to be true, but we just heard from another satisfied, educated customer of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Got the Book of Ron, went over it. It’s spelled out right there. Unlike some of these guys, go with- invite one of these kids into your house when they’re walking around with a clipboard or an iPad trying to talk to you about solar. And ask them to show you what it is that you’re going to make off that system. They won’t be able to do it. They’ll scribble a couple things down. Everything that we’re talking about on The Energy Show from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions is spelled out in writing. Couple that with among the biggest and longest warranties and guarantees in the business and really it doesn’t make sense not to go solar for your home, Ron.

Ron : I have to tell you that we hire people out of the industry sometimes, especially in a residential end of it. Every salesman cannot believe that we give this book. And they say, “You leave this book with them?” By the way, they walk up and there used to be a piece of paper and they’d scratch numbers all over it. Some of them are still doing it. You’re not gonna have a clue what they’re saying. People show me what they’re looking at. I’ve been designing electric systems and know about electricity for 40 years. I kind of laugh because it means absolutely nothing what they’re giving you. The newest thing I see is they’re all coming with their iPads. I recently had spoke to a homeowner. We did their whole family. It was a cousin. He said his credit wasn’t that great, but the day before they signed up and I think they bought the system.

I kind of- he thinks he bought the system. He told me his wife signed it. And then on the flipside, I say, “Let me see what you signed.” He says, “I’m not allowed to show it to you.” I said ”What do you mean you’re not allowed? He goes, “Well I don’t have it, but don’t think I’m not the smartest guy in the world because I remember exactly what the guy said.” I said, “Well tell me what he said.” He goes, “No. You don’t understand. I didn’t lease it. I bought it.” “So tell me what he said” He goes, “My electric. I have a budget of $147 a month for the first 12 years. My system’s only gonna cost $390 a month. In the next eight years, it’s only gonna cost, I think he said 320 a month. I mean, you got to be kidding me. They stole his incentives. He bought it. By the way, he’s going to own the system. So they stole the system. It’s like a new-fangled lease and the guy doesn’t have a great credit score.

He’s now in debt, everything. People asked me, homeowners ask me and my guys all the time, what are the payments and we’re gonna show you we’re to show you a black and white, you do not have payments. The solar incentives. There’s no electric bill. Everything else will pay your system off and if you need to take a loan, they’ll see a section of my book. Even paying a loan off, you always, year after year, you’re going to have positive cash flow. The big companies don’t want to know this. They don’t do this. They don’t show you this. So the more electricity you use, the better it is for you and really important. So I want every homeowner to understand this, get your own money. No solar contractor or developer will tell you what I’m telling you because they’re ripping you off on your loans. They are stealing your [ezracks,] including the power companies.

Eric : Yeah it’s, you know, those are the types of programs that really cost you money as a homeowner. Now I’m almost four years into the solar system that I bought from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions and Ron showed me in my book how that system was going to pay for itself. I didn’t have $50,000 in cash. I did take out a loan. That loan will be paid off and then everything is profit in my pocket. And that’s- the amount of money that you make, that’s a new car. That’s a tuition payment. That’s additional money into your retirement fund. That’s money that really goes in your pocket to offset New Jersey’s high property taxes. It’s real money. This isn’t something that is just money on paper. You get a check or in my case a deposit right into my bank account. It’s real money, Ron.

Ron : You know one of the craziest things, I was never involved in a residential market. I called Eric one day. I said, “I can’t believe this. People don’t even ask me how much this stuff costs, how much money do I got to put down. I hate to say this. And there’s probably 50 million commercials out there, no money down. I’d start to realize really what you’re looking for. They’re looking for you. They have you marked. I mean, you should be making money, not losing money on what you’re doing. You know, in reality, if you take a loan out it is no money down and it’s gonna pay. It’s gonna pay every penny off. You don’t have payments. You’re going to- It’s going to pay itself off if you take the time to look at the book, understand it. If you don’t understand it, give it to your accountant.

You know how those guys sit there. They sit there and check your credit score and sit there for 2 1/2 hours for you to sign something. We’re not asking you to do that. We got other things to do. You know what? We want you to take a look at it. Show it to your account. If you’re comfortable, call us up and we’ll sign you up. They’re there pushing you, pressuring you, knocking on your doors, calling every three seconds. It’s insane. They’re doing it for a reason. They’re getting so much money off of this and then they’re gone. The mid-size guys are doing this. That- this month coming up every one of my sales guys, educators, out there is going through the New Jersey home energy, one the clean programs which talks about insulation. Talks about your heating systems and everything else.

We don’t do that, but we’re gonna tell you what we think you should do at your house too. Has nothing to do with us. We really like what we do. We want to educate people on everything, everything about it. And how you really make money, how you can incorporate and stuff. I have nothing to do with it. My company doesn’t make money off of it on the residential end of it. We’re just trying to help you and show you what’s out there and educate you, so your house becomes an energy producer and making you money.

Eric :  Yeah it’s really about the education. You owe it to yourself just call. Call and get educated. 855, SUNNY, the number four, the letter u. 855-SUNNY-4-U or advancedsolarNJ.com. Are you convinced yet? We’re gonna talk to another one of Ron’s customers and find out what their experience was with Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions when we come back on The Energy Show.

[Music plays]

Eric : Welcome back to The Energy Show where we are continuing to educate you and dispel the myths and misinformation about going energy independent and tapping into the power of the sun. If someone is promising that they can reduce your electric bill, beware. Chances are it’s a scam. If you do solar right for your home, you will not only eliminate your electric bill, but you will make real money off the power of the sun. How do you get educated? You talk to Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Call 855-SUNNY-4-U. That’s 855, SUNNY, the number four, the letter U or advancedsolarNJ.com. And if you happen to have signed a lease agreement and they have not put a panel on your house yet, you still have an opportunity to get out of it. If you have a pending lease agreement, give Ron Urban from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions a call and let him take a look at that. He’ll tell you where you’re being scammed because solar really, Ron, should make people money, not cost them money in the long run. Some people have signed these lease agreements wind up paying more for their utilities.

Ron : It’s just a really good investment if you understand how it works, and get educated on the way solar is really designed.

Eric : Well, I mean, we’ve been talking to a lot of your satisfied customers. Let’s talk to David Cole, who had his system installed on his home on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. David, thanks for joining us on The Energy Show.

David : Sure, glad to help out.

Eric : So David, how did you first become aware of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions?

David : Well I heard the ad on the radio, believe it or not.

Eric : Okay.

David : And I was building a new house and I had- I knew I had a good sudden exposure, so I called a few different solar people to come and talk to me. But by far Ron was the most knowledgeable and the most credible person I spoke with. And I was very happy that I went with him.

Eric : So the president and founder of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, Ron Urban came out and met with you personally.

David : Absolutely. He came to my house. He spent quite a bit of time with me explaining everything because I wasn’t really that knowledgeable on it. And you know what? Everything he said actually did come true and more. I think the system is actually making more power than we had originally thought it would.

Eric : Right. And that was it in a similar to the experience- because, you know, long before Ron and I started educating people on solar, I was a customer and he overproduced on what he said that my system was going to produce and it sounds, David like he did the same thing for you.

David : Yeah absolutely. You know, it was sized, you know, to do a certain out of power and it’s actually making more than that probably because I have a little bit better- you know, you always go I guess a little bit conservative than the amount of sun I get on the roof, the base, you know, on where we put the top panels. It’s excellent.

Eric : So David what is your electricity bill every month?

David : Why- Believe it or not, this is a new house. I’ve never had an electric bill.

[laughs]

David : I have not. I have a credit with the electric company.

Eric : Yup.

David : Which isn’t, you know, should be more, but they really- what they do, the electric company is they give you like a wholesale credit per kilowatt.

Eric : Yeah.

David : So it’s not nearly what they would charge you. I mean, I don’t have the bills in front of me, but I’ve never had a bill. I have a negative bill, but really and, you know, Ron is really the best to explain how this works, but yeah. The best piece of it the solar renewable energy credit.

Eric : Yes, right. Yup.

David : I get each month and you know, he said I’d get money each month and I do. It just goes automatically into my bank account. It averages about $300 a month. So not only do I not have an electric bill, I’m making about $300 a month. So the whole system will be paid, I figure it will be paid off in about five years, but technically my savings are quite a bit more than it alone would cost if I had put it- if I had taken out a loan to actually build it.

Eric : So you… How long have you had this home?

David : This is my third summer.

Eric : Right. So your third- so you and I probably had our installs done about that about the same time. I have a zero electric bill. You’ve never had an electric bill. You get $300 a month about deposited into your bank account. Positive cash flow from day one. Everything that we have been talking about when you first heard that that was even possible, did you think it was too good to be true?

David : Yeah, I really wanted to do it because I would like to, you know, if I can save energy, I wanted to do it for that purpose. I’ve been-

Eric : Sure.

David : I’ve been more than, you know, it’s been… the fact that I can actually make money on has just been a big plus for me.

Eric : Yeah, you know, it’s- you have the advantage of being able to go green. You reduce your carbon footprint. You do your bit for the environment and hey if you make some money at the same time, that’s a… what do they call it? A win-win-win for everybody.

David : Absolutely. In fact, my next, you know, I want to get it an electric car pretty soon because I’ll be zero for the fuel for it.

Eric : There you go. Yeah I mean, it all is a circle of life where you know you’re really making money and this David is how solar is supposed to work and now with your experience with Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, when you hear about all these other lease programs or somebody calls you or you see it on social media, what do you think about that?

David : I just tell them I already have solar energy, thank you. But I wouldn’t- I never really considered… I had done enough research on the way that leasing works that I would never do that. I don’t like the fact that they were telling me how much you’re going to reduce my energy bill and it was all- it was very secretive with what they actually do. Because I did talk to one person about it, but I never really considered it.

Eric : And you got your big Book of Ron. Ron spelled everything out in writing in your book?

David : Absolutely.

Eric : Yeah.

David : -the insulation was, you know, very neat and done quickly, on time.

Eric : David Cole. Long Beach Island. Another satisfied customer, educated consumer from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. David, thank you very much for sharing your experience with Ron and his team with us on The Energy Show

Ron : Thank you, David.

David : You’re welcome.

Eric : Yeah it is it really is amazing, Ron, when you know we talk to customer after customer after customer. And you know, so many of them said, “Yeah it kind of sounded to be too good to be true,” “Yeah I finally called,” “Yeah I kind of got the book,” “Yeah I looked at it.” And then you hear people like David say, “Well I’ve never had an electric bill and they put money in my bank account every month. How about that?

Ron : By the way, I felt good. I can’t remember him. He’s got- We have a lot of customers. How long he’s had his system. It’s been three years, brand new home, beautiful home in LBI. Nice big home. Gorgeous and he’s got no bill. It just makes me… I get tingly all over. I just honest to God I think it’s one of the greatest investments you could get. By the way, David mentioned something else. We meet people all the time, they’re telling me they’re getting an electric car. So you have to produce your energy to show the power company, we do engineers reports. We’ll do an analysis about how much gas they’re using to how much electricity. One thing that kind of cracks up is “Oh I got an electric car. I don’t have to pay for gas.” Well there goes your electric bill. So when we design a system from you, not only will we design your system for your current power, long as you have the car, we’ll design it to cover that whole bill. So now you have zero electric, zero gas bill. So if I take your gas bill, you got to think about this. These other guys telling you, you got to wait or you got to do this. And let me take one other step backward. We’re knowledgeable and all, when a solar electrician most of them can’t put a light switch in.

Eric : Right.

Ron : They’re trained to put this box in your house and they can’t do it. We look at it. we do the engineering, the calculations. We’ll put the- we’ll install your car charger for you. We’ll make it all and so you get it. But my point is this, so if you were using $3,000 a year for gasoline, this is really important for people to understand how great your solar system is. It’s usually a few KW more we put on your roof to cover for you at that additional electric. But in reality, we should be putting that $3,000 back into where we’re showing you how your payback is. By the way, I’d put the $3000 in there for 25 years. Period. Guess what? that’s $3,000 as gas goes up over the years should go up. so that customer, if David was talking about $3,300, I think was around $80 or $90,000 of systems is, but if you added your car on there, so the more electricity that you use the more money you’re going to make.

The return stays the same. I talk to farmers. I talk to people all the time. When I talk to farmers, they have a lot of land. They have a lot of nice projects. Unfortunately, where they live they can’t get natural gas. A lot of them have propane. Propane is extremely expensive. So we look at their job, they tell us their electric bill. So we go out to their house and electric bill was… whatever, but their system cost is… say $50,000. This is what kind of blows people’s minds when we show them something. So if that former now can convert his home to electric, all-electric. electric is the most efficient heat you could buy. It’s also the most expensive because of the transmission lines of that power coming into your home.

So now I gave him a triple heart attack. His whole system is now going to cost $150,000. you are nuts. This is insane. Where this is crazy money. Guess what? So in his first page, before we even talked doing, adding additional electricity or whatever, his cost was $50,000. He was getting all of his money back between year five and six or four and five, whatever it was. And his return was 22, 25% whatever it is. If it if now we change his system to $150,000 his return is exactly the same. His payback is exactly the same. The only little inkling of a bonus that he’s going to get that system in 25 years would’ve made him $150,000 now makes him $450,000. So when my customers see how solar really works and they explain about your electricity. By the way, the solar guys don’t even know about solar. they going to explain to you about energy efficiencies or whatever. It’s not uncommon that I go to somebody’s house and they got some crazy bill. Guess what? we help them fix the bill to lower their electricity because there was something wrong with one of their appliances something in their house and then we give him the solar.

Do you think a solar contractor would do that or have the knowledge to do that or try to help you or is he just going to try to charge you more? Period. So it’s an investment. It’s such a great investment. I’m really happy to hear I have customer after customer. You know, I hear customers, even Eric, and other people. they always come back to me and say you know what we made more money than it in your book. And let me tell you the reason why because you don’t know what you’re looking at those. There are damn escalators and [everythings]. There are damn different rates of electricity how it goes up. They’re telling you you get more back in your incentives. All that stuff that they’re normally lying or they’re way over the board. I’m actually under the board so I’m conservative. I can’t control all of it but I try to give my customers a good conservative price. So when they come back they’re making more on their projects. they all come back to me, “ Oh your book was wrong.”  Guess what? I made more money. And by the way, that’s what I want to hear.

Eric : You can see how important it is for you to get educated. If you’ve got a lease agreement

Eric : We’re back on The Energy Show with Ron Urban, founder, and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions as we continue to dispel the myths and misinformation about really going energy independent, tapping into the power of the sun. And we’re not talking about saving you money. If you noticed this entire hour we talked about doing two things eliminating your electric bill and making you real money. That’s how solar supposed to work. Call 855, SUNNY, the number four, the letter U or visit advancedsolarNJ.com. Alright so when we were talking to another satisfied Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions customer, David Cole, who put a great system on his home in LBI. Never had an electrical bill. brand new house. David never had an electric bill and he gets $300 in his bank account every month. That’s how it’s supposed to work, but it is good for the environment Ron. And we haven’t talked a whole lot about that. We’ve been focused on the money, but it truly- it takes you- it reduces your carbon footprint. It helps you go green. Talk about the environmental benefits

Ron : So one thing I’d like to talk about and how this industry kind of involved is like when the government wants something they’re gonna give it away. And they’re still not giving it away in my point of view. But if you really research that solar guys don’t really look it into the grants and read hundreds of pages, you know, and all of this which we didn’t in the very beginning. I had an accountant and engineer. But one of the things we kind of got out of the system and how everybody is getting robbed, is that the government wants clean, green, renewable energy. Which is pretty cool stuff it really does help the environment.

By the way, solar companies can never cover all of our electricity. They’re telling you that’s not true. but one things that I saw in the writings in the solar and if this is correct or this is how I perceive what happened in this industry, why it took it to such a bad curb, it’s a good thing that the environ- the government did. On the flipside, the big guys got it. So if you could afford solar, you could put it on your house and get all these incentives and all this money and it makes you money and how great is. they also put something in there and I kind of… I can’t remember exactly how they worded it, but if your neighbor wanted solar and they couldn’t afford it but they kind of- their train of thought which was really good, I think for the country, is that you could invest in it and you could take the incentives and they ended up with free electric and you’re got a clean environment. That’s what the big giants took, grabbed, and are robbing people with.

In my head, robbing. I don’t care what they say. By the way, if they ever want to come after me, please call into the show. I’m happy to talk to you. On the flipside I’d like to have some of the seniors that call me that are crying to get this off the roof. You know I hate to say this but it’s- and people tell me they rob seniors. I just… this is the reason why the residential solar. It doesn’t tickle my fancy a bit, but if I could help people. and this is like, for me, a way to help people. Right now talking to you is helping you and educating you.

Eric : Yeah, make sure that you get educated. Look if you have parents that are thinking about going solar because they can save some money, please don’t let them do that or call Ron first at 855-SUNNY-4-U. 855, sunny, the number four, the letter U. Let Ron take a look at that lease agreement and he’ll tell you what it’s all about. in terms of the environment when Ron puts a system and he’s going to give you an app for your phone which is going to show you what electricity you are generating and it’ll monitor it, you can see it in real-time what you’re producing. And then compare it day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and one of the things is it shows you what was the environmental impact. So the system that I’ve had on my house has saved already over 66,000 pounds of CO2 emissions and the equivalent of almost 1700 trees planted.

That’s the environmental impact. You can see that in real-time on your phone on an app and you’ll notice even on a cloudy day, even on a cloudy day you’re still generating electricity. In the wintertime, still generating electricity. Still making money. That’s the advantage of a system from Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Get yourself educated and call 855-SUNNY-4-U. 855, Sunny, the number four, the letter U or visit advancedsolarNJ.com. In the last winter Ron when it was just brutally cold and. And it was overcast and we had a bunch of, you know, really snowy days I was still logging onto the app on my phone and I was still generating electricity. Even on the greatest day I’m still generating some electricity.

Ron : So solar, people think they know about it.  Kind of cracks me up whether I go into a commercial project or to a residential techy and they tell me they know everything about solar. There are people I end up having to sit there for 2 1/2 hours with them. “I didn’t know that I didn’t know that’s the way it works.” So something that’s kind of interesting to know is the solar is based on, the programs that generate your cost and everything else your savings, and now you’re gonna make money is over 20 years of weather. So people will call up when we get complaints every now and then someone will call us up and say we had three months of pure clouds out and we paid an electric bill. You will. By the way, if I put solar on your house today in the middle of this heatwave next month when I turn you on, you’re going to pay a bill. but what people don’t understand is how solar really works. If your bill for the whole year was $3,000. At the end of, the end of the 12 months, we’re gonna wipe out $3000.

So it’s designed to wipe out your bill and it’s based in way the power companies do it in the United States. It’s based on the last 12 years, 12 months of your consumption, and that’s how they calculate a project. Every now and then I’m going get a complaint. A customer will call us. This is kind of common with us. Other guys have all these crazy complaints. The system doesn’t work, that doesn’t work. They’ll call me and say, “My bills not zero.” We’ll go and look at their house. All of our all of our equipment is working. by the way, normally we go and look at the house within 24 hours. So we go out and look at their house and we find everything seems to be working right. “Did you guys do anything?” “Well, we used to keep our air-conditioning at 80, now we keep it at 66. We added electric heat in my mother’s room.” If you drive up your electric bill, you’re going to get a cost. You know it’s because it’s different than the year before. the power company is paying you retail up until what your last year’s production was.

Eric : Right.

Ron : So people find it real confusing. How do you make money and everything else. That’s why we like to sit down with our book. You make tons of money on the system. And it’s made, it’s really made- it’s a really great investment.

Eric : It is the best investment that I have ever made in my home. And again I’m looking at my app now and looking at month over month, year over year. There’s some fluctuation, but every year I’m ending with about the same generation and I will tell you that it is about 2 1/2 megawatts more than what was promised in my Book of Ron. I’m making more electricity than you told me I would.

Ron : That was a correction, 2 1/2 kilowatts.

Eric : Oh I’m sorry. Kilowatts.

Ron : But it’s all good. So yeah I get this all the time. I made more money than you told me. First off, you didn’t believe me when I went out there.

Eric : [Laughs]

Ron : Or one of my guys went out there and they’re telling you and they’re calling us 1000 times. But the book will prove itself. And, by the way, I did make it conservative. I don’t want to be crazy where it’s not going to be there. I intend to be in business for next 20, 30 years too. So it’s kind of different. By the way, talking about solar one thing that’s kind of important in understanding the industry is maintenance. They don’t come out and fix it. even if they tell you they do.

 Eric : Yep

 Ron : So once we get a system up and running we usually monitor for two months. We see if there’s anything wrong. Usually, if there’s anything wrong, it’s human error. I’m telling you right from the horse’s mouth… we go correct it and then we give you the monitor. 99% of the time and we check the monitoring. We have customers all the time something might go wrong or something they’re kind of amazed. Even techies that we came out before that. Recently, this is real recently. It was as much as this week. We did a system for somebody, a ground mount system. beautiful area. Maybe four or five years. I don’t remember how long ago it was, we looked at it. One of his inverters was not working. We called him immediately.

He couldn’t believe that we beat him to talking to him. We went out there we checked. And this is the way the solar system warranties and guarantees work. Everyone needs to know this and this is why there’s something wrong with me. So we went out and looked at his system. One of his inverters were shot. we have to call the manufacturer. he’s got to give us the OK. Then they send us a new inverter or reconditioned inverter to replace it. That’s how the industry works. By the way, that was 3 1/2 weeks ago right now. The inverter hasn’t come in. The next day I went and bought him brand new inverter. And I put it in. I ate that cost. I’ll never get it back. The used inverter I can’t put on somebody’s house. Normally I’ll donate to a vet or something and do a system for them. that’s how I work my business. People don’t lose it. If they’re a different company it could be three or four months before they send it. Three or four weeks whatever. But that’s money to you. My customers look at every penny.

They call me all the time. Everything that we do is fully disclosed that you could look at it. I’m just not only talking about monitoring, permitting, how this stuff comes to you. A lot of companies- my favorite one is this if anyone out there have solar, “All the solar companies said the power companies hold them up.” Guess what? They didn’t do the paperwork right. They didn’t get it on time. it’s always them. the power company is on a mark. They do everything really well. So with the permitting and everything else, you got to go through three permitting processes and we do it all for you.

Eric : Well and you can see with Ron, it is a passion. It is a passion. He doesn’t want you to be ripped off. Call 855-SUNNY-4-U. 855 sunny, the number four, the letter U or visit advancedsolarNJ.com. Get yourself educated. Before you sign any lease agreement, call Ron. He’ll take a look at it for you. He’ll educate you. He’ll show you how you can eliminate electric bill and make real off the sun 855-SUNNY-4-U or advance solarNJ.com. Thank you again for listening to the energy show.

The founders of this company give you a maintenance that will last for 20 years and no less. You will not have to worry about going back for maintenance issues time and time again.

Say No to Misinformation

The founder and president, Ron, is an extremely passionate individual and desires to put a stop to all the misinformation that is spread regarding the solar industry. He further helps people by inviting them to seek his advice when companies promise to save individuals a lot of money. He reviews the lease agreements and points out the flaws to those who are innocently ignorant but smart enough not to be scammed. Ron then proves to you in writing, using the industries longest guarantees and warranties, how the system in question will pay for itself and help you make more money.

Tax incentives are enforced fully now and will only be reduced at the year’s end. So before you lose your chance, book an appointment discuss whether you can qualify for a lease and how well the installation is going to work.

Although Ron is not a lawyer, he has tremendous knowledge of lease contracts. As per his opinion, most lease contracts initially only show you a 1.5% or 2 % to sway your mind. In reality, they end up ripping your pockets of 30% nearly. This is why one has to be extra careful when applying for solar systems in their homes and availing lease contracts.

An Energy Independent You

At the end of the day, if you want to become energy independent, completely eliminate the payment of electric bills and make money, then Ron is your guy to do it. You can visit advancedsolarnj.com for more information.

Make money from Solar

The tax advantages for businesses in the state of New Jersey for solar are huge. Most of the times both small and large business owners sit down with their accountants and go over the benefits of adding solar to their company, the accountants always come back and approve it. The tax benefits are so huge because it can increase your revenue and knocks out one of your biggest operating expenses. Solar is great if you own a home, even better if you have a business and all of it is due to the different tax incentives and these things called SREC’s solar renewable energy credits.

Any project it doesn’t matter how much it cost $10,000 or $10 million, right off the bat you’re going to get 30% off the project whatever the cost is from the federal government off your taxes. Right off the bat, you’re going to get a zero electric bill 99% of the cases so if that’s $3000 a year you just made $3000 a year. Also, keep in mind that a lot of solar companies will not tell you about the SREC’s and that they can be deposited directly into your account. These checks will keep on coming in and that’s another way solar can give you revenue.

Real-life reviews

John Lawler is with Lawler woodwork in Howell New Jersey

“It’s unbelievable what it’s doing and there’s nothing stopping me now. You could just go to the next level you don’t have to worry about an electric bill. It’s just more revenue with no electric bill and with income coming in so you can concentrate on getting another machine, leasing another machine with a buyout with the money that you’re saving.” “
“Like I said the worry of the electric bill, you don’t have any worry anymore and have income coming in so you basically have income from not paying the bill and the income from the incentive for the solar”

Bob Nichols owns a farm in Wrightstown New Jersey

“Well for one we don’t have to worry about with all of the horse stalls, the fans and everything like that and I was always running around and turning everything off worrying about how high the bill is going to be and this and that and basically our bill zeroed out with air-conditioned fans.

The Energy Show Ep. 3 Transcription

Eric: Welcome to The Energy Show with Ron Urban founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Ron is one of the nations leading experts on energy efficiency and solar design and over the next hour we’re going to talk to you about how solar should really work and why so many so called solar companies are running a scam, essentially to steel your money. And this hour we want to talk to business owners. If you own a business this is a game changer for you. Tap into the power of the sun and Ron its almost too good to be true when you kind of spell out what the benefits of solar companies in NJ offer you are and shocking when you realize what it is that so many people don’t take advantage of it.

Ron: One of the things I’d like to talk about for one second step one step that one step backward is really what The Energy Show’s about. Its not an info commercial it’s a show about energy and energy efficiencies. You uh its about your business its about your residence and everything. We’re going to have guests from manufacturers will be here, product people will be here, uh hopefully we’re going to have people from New Jersey Clean Energy here and a lot of guest speakers and things like that. We’re it’s a whole total package. How people are really going to make a ton of money if they listen to this show. One of the things that took me over 40 years to do and research in commercial buildings and things which I design and build and in conjunction with electrical systems but there’s a lot to it. Everyone thinks they know what they’re doing, most people don’t. But you’re going to learn a lot. We’re going to have people from some of the biggest companies here. We’re going to have people that are experts in different fields here. So, and by the way they’re going to back up what we talk about. Most of the people on these shows that are going to be on these shows, if there’s commercials in these shows, not only is it is it are they guaranteeing their work they’re people that I know, that I met and I’m going to guarantee their work too. All my projects are guaranteed and warranted way above anybody else and that includes if we’re doing a solar system on your roof, we’ll take care of your roof. We’re going to show you how to get your money back on your commercial roof and how it really works. How its combined together. People call me all the time especially in the commercial industry saying I don’t know I was thinking about doing solar but its so much money a commercial would be a million, 2, 3 million dollars. We show them how to do the project, how to get the project done. We’ll do your roof. You’re going to get that 1 million back in 1 year, don’t have to wait and this is one of the biggest things in this industry. In a solar industry, I don’t care how big they are, they sub everything out they’ve got all kinds of crazy guys doing their work. They don’t have their own people. They’re not, in my head they don’t even know where they came from. One of the things though I do when we do presentation for our commercial customers, especially the larger ones, we bring out the manufacturers with us and one of the reasons I’m bringing out the manufacturers you know you might not notice, I might look like I’m 50 or 60 years old but really I’m 97 which is a joke; but they’re always asking me what happens if anything happens to you? By the way I have the largest some of the top companies in the country that are, they back up the warranties. They’re there for a reason because if anything goes wrong, they were sitting at the meeting. They can be in our meeting in our notes and in the past, they have the best products and the best warranties. In fact, I’ve been dealing with uh with uh Bob who’s going to be in very shortly and talk a little bit about their uh products and stuff. My first one of my first commercial projects Bob was telling me about the roofs and things. The roof that they do, I’ve been speaking to one of the top engineers from one of the tops uh pharmaceutical companies in energy expert for over 40 years who’s retired now. He told me about the product, now Bob’s company will also talk about they have based 20 year warranties and for properties and I believe because of our system, our first system, undenounced to the state of New Jersey my first project because I didn’t think about putting rocks on someone’s roof they now guarantee solar. They’re in every single show out there for 25 years the same warranty that the panels are. All this stuff is extremely important. To know how a solar system works from the from the electricity to the benefits to your accounting to your financial things and everything. 

Eric: Yeah well let’s talk about that in just a second, but a guy you know what Ron was just talking about if you are a business owner, if you own a warehouse, if you own a building and you’re thinking about putting on a new roof we know how expensive it is to do that. Ron can walk you through how the solar system, that he will incorporate into that project, will pay for your roof, pay for your project, and then start making you money. Ron mentioned design in build, that’s Ron’s background and before we go any further Ron, I think it’s important again that people understand that you’re not a solar guy. 

Ron: So, some real important that Eric just said there by the way I’ve been designing buildings and electric systems my whole life. So, I look at it a whole different way. So like I can’t take the roof and put it on with the solar project but my accountants take the roof they take the depreciation by the way we might be doing light, LED lighting for you and we’ll take all of the energy savings. We work in some companies; we might be doing truck ports for them outside their property where they spend $300,000 a year to plow the things. We don’t do regular car ports. We design our own. They cover the whole parking lot. The snow drops off somewhere else. So, when you take all of this and I sit down with the corporate accountants and things what we’re going to show you all these other ways that you’re never going to pay that money again. So, you know why they fum, even if I cost more, you’re going to make so much more money off our systems because of how we break it down how we show. Solar contractors don’t have a clue what I do. Some of the biggest solar contractors and developers in the state and the country there, look at their backgrounds there anything from HVAC contractors, roofers, chemical engineers and on and on and on. My background for 40 years is designing electric systems and designing buildings. That’s my job. So now for all my developer buddies and the people that I’ve met out there, and my whole career I’m showing you get them. By the way every I get the it’s just like repeatedly the customer, the contractor, he can be an HVAC contractor, he can be a roofing contractor, there’s all these crazy benefits that you get. Either they don’t know if they didn’t get trained or went to proper classes or they’re taking your incentives. There’s even supply houses that take they take all the incentives that you get. 

Eric: And it’s the incentives that that you need to know about and take advantage of. That’s where the real money is. That’s where the real payoff is. 

Ron: Absolutely by the way in every state well I’m from New Jersey we do most of our work in New Jersey, we have New Jersey clean energy. The problem is just 2000 pages through it. You know there’s a million little things in there. If you learn and no one does it like all like that’s a big problem. You know I’m right now I’m designing buildings for people before they even start, and before they even touch their architects and stuff. So, we’re designing buildings with roofs designed just for solar. You’re going to get more production out of your roof. We’re designing the buildings this may sound crazy with electric heat and things. The more electric I put in your building the more money you’re going to make and by they way just take one step backwards, Eric and I kept saying warehouse. Warehouses are very small user of electricity, you know. But the warehouse where we do it their offices are changing their offices to hear. Its money. They’re making them money. The customers that see how it really works its great. But let’s flip over to the other side. Let’s talk about nursing homes, lets talk about hotels, lets talk about what your business must pay for all this electricity. You know its not a triple net lease, its nothing and you’ve got to pay all this. I can knock that out. If solar guys came to your industry, to your house, I’m so sorry to your building or your property and oh well uh I don’t think we can get it on here. I will design something to get it on there. That’s the difference between me and them. By the way I may not be the smartest guy in the world because they’re making a fast buck throwing these things on your roof and running. I’ll design all kinds of walkways. Everything they’re architecturally pleasing for corporations, whatever they want to do I will do it and it will be energy efficient. It will pay for your mortgages for your things. When you take all the numbers and combine them together have an accountant to do this and show you all these ways you’re saving money. You know I looked at a project in New York. The project and I don’t really go through this city to much or to upstate New York your electric bill, they got more money in one year uh at uh a $100,000 lighting retrofit. In 5 years, it not only did it pay itself off in 9 months, they made about $500,000 off of it.

Eric: Yeah and all these companies that are coming out, that are trying to tell you that they are going to save you money. Ron is not going to promise to save you money. Ron is going to make you money. He is going to make you a lot of money. You call 855-SUNNY4U or visit advancedsolarnj.com that’s 855-SUNNY4U you’re going to meet with Ron directly. Your business project, your commercial project, is going to start with a complete energy audit and that’s where the process begins. Then you and Ron are going to talk and he’s going to design something for you and then he’s going to come back with the Book of Ron. We like to call it the Book of Ron, it’s a big thick book. It literally spells out word for word, line for line, everything that you talk about. You’re not going to get something scribbled on a piece of paper or some pie in the sky promises to save you money. He’s going to show you how you return an investment is going to pay off and Ron I think that’s where some of these businesses, these companies get a little intimidated because you know you’re talking about a lot of stuff. You’re throwing a lot of numbers out there, but you put every word of it writing. 

Ron: Its in writing. Its there for your accountants to see it. I mean I want them to review it. I want in corporations I want your engineers to look at it. You know and that’s it that its really going to make you a lot of money. The systems are unbelievable. 

Eric: Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions is not going to throw a couple of panels haphazard up on your roof, walk away and then you never hear from them again. All your maintenance is included. They have some of the longest warranties and guarantees in the industry. Why wouldn’t you do this? You’re going to eliminate one of your biggest costs, and you’re going to create an entirely new revenue stream for your business. Ron this is a game changer for any commercial venture. 

Ron: Its it uh like even developer I go back to developers you know. If they can borrow more money off these systems you’re making more money on your projects. Its we’re eliminating the highest operating expenses that people have in the industry. You know if you’re a manufacturing anything else you can your prices can go down. You can stabilize lot of companies I I read about years ago, in a phone industry and things the biggest companies out there in the state of New Jersey they can never project their electric because it’s so crazy in how much it goes up. And a uh a lot uh its just nutty. And guess what if electric goes up yours doesn’t. You know all’s this is doing is increasing the value of your property, making you money, they can’t increase your property taxes it’s the federal law. So by the way its just a plus, plus, plus. Or you could wait until they’re going to force you to do. Its coming down the line its coming down the next 5 6 years I guarantee ya. If you don’t take advantage of it now its going to get you later. 

Eric: Yeah and this is the perfect time because there are some tax incentives that are very generous. They are going to be reduced after this year. So 855-SUNNY4U that’s 855-SUNNY4U or advancedsolarnj.com go to Ron’s website see some of the commercial projects that he has put together. Not only are these energy efficient and part of the whole plan to be able to make you money, but they look great. Its going to improve the aesthetics of what you’re trying to do for your business or your commercial venture as well. And listen if you need a new roof, if you’ve been thinking about putting on a new roof hang on because in just a couple of minutes we’re going to talk with one of the nation’s leading roofing experts with decades of experience doing this and how it all pulls together for your project. 855-SUNNY4U. 855-SUNNY4U or advancedsolarnj.com Back on The Energy Show with one of the nation’s leading roofing experts next

*commercials*

Eric: And we’re back on The Energy Show with Ron Urban the founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions 855-SUNNY4U, that’s 855-SUNNY4U or advancedsolarnj.com and we’ve been educating business owners this hour on how solar energy efficiency, the complete redesigning and build of your commercial building cannot only eliminate one of your biggest utility costs but can actually make you money. And one of the things we’ve talked about it is the need for a new roof. A new roof can be prohibitively expensive. In just a moment we’re going to talk to one of the nation’s leading roofing experts but I think Ron before we do that its important to understand how all of these things kind of incorporate into one another and how you look at different jobs and how you go to a business owner and say alright so you need a new roof and you need a new lighting system, and you need all of these others things. Those, its like you’re putting together a jigsaw puzzle. All those pieces fit together to make you money. 

Ron: So my years of experience, and I’ve kind of crack up, someone was training somebody we try to hire more especially in our commercial industry we kind of consider ourselves as educators not sales people. So my sales people, educators, are always bugging me to ask them to please help us to be able to understand what you do and see what you do. So its kind of like a joke. I work for larger companies when I work I worked for a larger company they’ll hire engineers, they’ll higher all whole kinds of crews to do what it is on a building. So normally I’m just talking to a customer for the very first time I’ll walk through the building. I’ll give you a quick example. Now not too long ago I walked through a guys building it was about 180,000 square feet, its like 3 football fields or whatever it was. So we walk through the building and we got done he told me when am I going to perform the energy audit. I said guess what I’m done. I says I made my sales guys mouths drop. You know I’ve been doing this so long I design buildings. One of the reasons people say why do you design the whole building with every in of it? First off when I build on I know everything that’s wrong. I know how to build it. I know how to build it right. I know what every nut and bolt is. But when I’m walking through a building I can see right away when the heating’s 25 years old, when the roof deck is starting to rust, it needs a new roof. I mean the lightings ancient and its obsolete. I go in the bathrooms, the toilets are leaking and their 90 years old. You know there’s a lot of stuff that you put together and no one wants to take care of these expenses and you know. 

Eric: And that’s your advantage pitch, but being design and build. That’s why we say all the time Ron Urban is not a solar guy. You’re background in design and build let’s you look at these projects differently than any of these guys that are walking into your office or calling you on the phone or sending you know stuff on social media. 

Ron: You know there’s something else though. I have some family that works for me. They kind of yell at me they say I’m a little over board. I’m really passionate about what I do. If we’re doing a project and there’s something wrong with your building, half the time I’ll fix and we’ll do it at no expense to you. it’s something in my brain I think I missed but we really take a lot of pride in it. A lot of time when I’m with owners the owners end up telling me hey I need this, I need that. But probably the greatest thing and one of the best feelings I get its like when I cook and people really like what I do, it makes you feel good. When I’m with building owners they call me for years. Ron I’ve got a problem with this, Ron I’ve, Ron this can you help me with that? And I do I enjoy it, I really do. So its kind of a passion of mine but you’re cutting about 10 middle men. You’re cutting out a lot of cost here and there. You know people think our systems are some of the most expensive out there. I have to laugh. So if you hire a solar contractor he has to put a solar canopy on the side of your building to put more solar panels so to knock out your whole electric bill. I design this I design it, I fabricate it, and then I make it. None of them do that. Or there’s not many that do if I nor did I ever see one. So that cuts your expenses down. Everything we do. People ask me too they say hey Ron we got this solar company, we’re waiting 3.5 months to get a price from them. Guess what if I like at your building, normally before I get there I’ve got a price and book in my hand. You know we its all done we don’t have to wait for years and months for 50,000 people to review it or do whatever they do. And our projects are normally 10 times better than anybody else’s.

Eric: Yeah and Ron is not subbing this out to subcontractors that you don’t know. They’re all part of the Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions team. But we talked about roofs. And it is one of the single biggest expenses that a lot of industrial building owners or commercial building owners have to face and it’s a very scary cost but there are ways that Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions can show you how the project will actually pay for itself. And they’re not just throwing on some cheap roof. These are high quality dur durable warrantied roofs, better than almost anybody else in the industry. You might recognize the name Carlisle, one of the largest roofing companies in U.S. Bob Barowasher is the roofing expert. He has over 30 years of experience and Ron and he go back a long time. 

Ron: When I met Bob about 25 years ago through a one of the uh pharmaceutical professional engineers that took care of an energy efficiency through buildings, some of the things a passion of mine my whole life. Bob got me turned on to a uh foam roofs and silicone roofs and then I’m just going to touch base a little bit how important this is that we do and a no one else does in the industry. Not only are we solar contractors, we’re energy efficient contractors, we look at your whole building. One of the cool things that we do is we will install the roof for the customer. We guarantee everything. We have a 20 20 25 year warranty on our panels and they uphold their roofing warranty the same as ours. They got the idea through one of our, I believe through one of our first projects that we did in Jersey. City was an unbalanced system on a 160,000 sq. foot building. We’re actually saving a customer 60% of his heating bill too because of the type of roof that we put on. The crazy thing that we’re doing now in the industry right now is that its 1 year depreciation. So its got 1 company comes in and you get your money back and then you’re going to be making money on your solar and I’m just going to touch base and let Bob talk about his thing from Carlisle some of the things that they have and how great their systems really are. 

Bob: Well thank you Ron and thanks for having me. Umm I’ve been in the commercial roofing business for 28 years uhhh I’m now with Carlisle Roof Foam and Coatings its one of the largest manufacturers of roofing materials in the country. Uh we specialize in liquid applied roofing. Uh and we like to think of ourselves as enablers for the solar the rooftop solar industry by creating a long term platform for them to place their panels onto. Uh there are two two variations of systems that that we propose. One is as Ron mentioned polyurethane foam, a layer of that which is spray applied. And uh then coated with two to three coats of a high solid silicone coating also spray applied. Or just spray applied coatings which is a roof restoration system. If the project umm is applicable for system like that. Uh by using the polyurethane foam we’re adding tremendous insulation to the building. It is the best insulating material in the roofing industry. It seems its umm totally monolithic and uh works well on a variety of applications. 

Ron: Some of the things that uh that’s really important and I hear this every day from customers, and solars been around since 2003 right now in the industry I’ll get a develop or manufacturer come to me hey I finally  got a roof put on my building. You know they should really call us first. You know when I do presentations, Bob comes with me on a lot of our presentations. Something that’s extremely important for the solar for your efficiency is a white roof helps your panels run more efficient. A white roof also knocks down some of your efficiencies in your uh in your building. Or keeps it cooler and you know maybe using less air conditioning and everything else. So when people come to one of our seminars, or we’re coming out for one of our presentations, we really get in depth. If it’s a larger scale company I mean we really welcome the engineers to be there. We’ll do a whole presentation. We have the manufacturers with us and really one of Bob’s company’s is truly one of the best in the industry. 

Bob: As as Ron mentioned every case is different. Its like I said we we want more solar panels out there. Uh renewable energy is on the rise its it’s an exploding industry for a lot of good reasons and we want to help encourage that technology. So by putting together a system on the roof that will enable more panels offer a long term warranty, and do a lot of other things at a very very competitively priced way we’re going to enable that uh solar industry to explode even more. 

Ron: Well one one of the things in my background is that I became a developer in life and one of the things I get from all of my developer buddies is no one ever wants to put a roof on their building. They’ll patch it. They’ll do this, they’ll do that. But right now you’ve got 1 year depreciation, you get your whole roof done. People squawk about the solar industry. We maintain it besides install it, and all your other warranties. The least of your warranties you have as a business owner is 20 years including maintenance. You don’t have to touch the system, we do it all. Its included with the roof. You have a brand new roof on your building. So it’s a plus, plus. You’re increasing the value of your building by by many, many times over .Its a huge thing. You get every every penny of your money back is going to come back in 2-3 years or so, then you make money. Don’t be tricked by these giant companies out there. They’re trying to lease you systems and go through PPAs and things like that. We will give you all the options. Your accountants we like to do meetings with accountants, and engineers in our meetings. They get what we get in our Book its clearly stated out there. All the warranties, guarantees are in there. So by the way another huge thing with the the Carlisle and companies like Bob’s is that if we’re not here, people ask all the time they take care of the warranty too. So its its uh it’s a joint kind of venture where its just a positive, positive, plus in this industry. And people should really call us first and get going on what they need and we’ll really show them how it works. 

Eric: Bob Barewasher one of the foremost roofing experts in the United States. 30 years of experience and you know it gives you an idea Ron of just again of how all of these pieces have to fit together and there is nobody out there in the solar industry, these so called solar companies that are going door to door, that can do that. Just nobody else does this.

Ron: You know the things that I do and what I learn through guys like Bob and through some of the top engineers in the country and things. So you have a giant building. The building needs a 2, 3, 4 million dollar roof. We demonstrate to people that when we take that roof off and put a new roof on we just cut your heating and air conditioning bills down 60%. Its written its documented all over. So its less energy everything else. When I first started in this industry the the the overseeing this is New Jersey Clean Energy. The head technical director came and worked for us. And he was just so inspired by us. Why would he come to a little company like us? Cuz he believed in what I do. Energy efficiency should be the government should make energy efficiencies first. By the way if I cut all of your energies down you got half the price for your solar project. So we just its if you understand how we look at projects like anyone else were not going to sit here and talk for 5 hours from every solar company trying to mimic and but they’re going to copy what we’re doing and they can’t cuz its 40 years of experience. 

Eric: Well and it’s the experience of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions that really truly makes the difference. 855-SUNNY4U that’s 855-SUNNY the number 4 the letter U. Are you sold on the idea yet? When we come back we’re going to go over how solar can truly pay for itself and if you’re a business that has a high tax appetite the time to call is now.

*commercials*

Eric: Back on The Energy Show with Ron Urban, founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions. Ron is not a solar guy. His decades of experience in design and build and energy efficiency is what’s going to make a difference for your business. If you own a business going solar, going through Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions, from the design and build phase to the completed project it’s a game changer. The tax benefits, increasing your cash flow, the value of your building its all part of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions’ plan to get you into a space where you are making money. Now Ron we haven’t talked a lot about the tax implications but especially with a lot of the companies that you deal with in New Jersey, we all know what the taxes are like in New Jersey. Tax benefits to these projects can be huge

Ron: Its you know its tax benefits and their highest operating expense combine. So lets just talk real quick and lets talk some scary numbers out there to people. Say a job is $1 million. So what the building owners really need to know and the developers is that in 1 year, after the first year our book will demonstrate that to you, prove to you and show your accountant how it works. You’re going to get half or a little bit more of that money back in 1 year. Its uh residential, sorry, a commercial project could be 2 year payback sometimes a little less, sometimes a little bit more. It all depends on roofs and things like that. Everything else and well how where you’re at, where you’re located. So and the biggest thing that I try and I try to explain to people too I don’t care if its residential or commercial I’m kind of laughing. People are like how what do I got a layout what I’m going to get back, what am I getting, but there’s not a dime that you’re paying back to pay this system off. Our books demonstrate this. We don’t take any off your profits. We don’t take any of your incentives. We don’t take any of the bonuses that you’re going to get. Its all yours. So in normally your just going by the way you have no electric bill. If you have a building, and the building has $100,000 year electric bill and we we eliminate that electric bill, there’s other things you need to think about too. Your building is now worth $100,000 more.

Eric: But I think that’s where you know where where some of these other solar companies they come in and say oh you’ve got $100,000 electric bill. We’re going to save you 15% on your electric bill. 

Ron: its 15%. By the way some might even go all the way up to 90 or 100% but then they’re taking their telling you how to finance it, to taking your SRECs. They’re taking they’re taking your 30%. I tell people this all the time when I do seminars if they’re taking anything, if they’re being your buddies and helping and taking you anything, you are getting ripped off. I have to say this but its kind of cracking me up lately more and more the utility companies are getting into solar

Eric: I’ve been seeing that yeah. 

Ron: And and just and just really think hard about how much you love your utility company. Is that utility company really out there to give you money back or is he trying to figure out how to make more money himself. There’s a lot of utility companies out there backed up by these giant leases and things like that. You know and they just do it to make more money. And it sounds good. People you know this is this is probably the worst thing whether you’re a commercial project or a residential project, I hear this every day, well you’re not that big look at the big giant guys are doing you know so and so builds cars he does this. I say go with them go ahead. They’re taking your money. They figured out a way to get your money. A lot of them are even backed up their companies have got a ton of money from the from the government. They’re just there to take your money. 

Eric: And look at how many of these companies have already gone bankrupt. When the big push was on for solar in you know in in New Jersey and elsewhere you know you had companies on every street corner coming and saying we’re going to give you free solar and this free this and free that. Find them now. 

Ron: And one of the the one of the biggies with the with the larger companies out there, I get called all the time I’m not going to say the name, but pharmaceutical companies call me. I went out to a winery  not too long ago and I look at these projects and they’re telling me yeah we got the biggest maintenance contract in the world with so and so and this guy and that guy. I look at their systems and they’re not even working right. They’re paying these guys. By the way the paddle broke by the tree, its two years now. Are you kidding me? By the way I looked at a a friend of ours he owns a winery. He has two different systems, one system I found and it hasn’t worked for 6 years. He’s with one of those giants and if you don’t use them they take care of your maintenance because you’re leasing it or whatever your doing or PPAs or whatever. I’ll show how to make money. By the way if your non-profit, if you’re doing other things ev even large corporations there’s something called Power Purchase Agreement out there. So you you don’t qualify for the 30% or you don’t have the tax appetites its just, let’s figure something out. Real simple and real easy. So you’re listening to these guys- well we can take the 30%. Guess what they do take the 30% you don’t get a dime of it. I’ll show you, if you’re a non-profit or whatever you’re doing, without the 30% you still make money off our projects. And you own a system. So when you own a system it increases the value of your house, or your business I’m sorry and you get all the benefits. So it’s a big trick. It’s a big game. We have new solar projects now; community solar, everything else. There all made for the big guys period. So when you talk to us we’re going to show you how it really works. How you get the benefits. Whether you’re non-profit, whether you’re a profit for profit, you may have to spread it out your taxes a little bit which you’re allowed to do. So there’s a lot a lot to the system and a lot to knowledge that you need to know. I made my booklets, originally when solar first came out because I know the owners that I talk to. I am a developer, I am a owner. That they they have 5 minutes to listen to you. If they don’t get it I just say give it to your accountant. If your accountant can attend. 99.9% of the time the accountant says this is a good investment. 

Eric: yeah

Ron: A lot of times I can’t even get to an accountant because they say solars no good. Plus the only 3 you get a PPA lease or whatever, you’ve got to be kidding me. 

Eric: Yeah that is true. Uh uh I’ve seen it happen uh time and time again when Ron and I have been out and we’ve talked to commercial business owners. Everybody from you know warehouses to restaurants. The book of Ron, where he spells out everything word by word, line by line, these aren’t just pie in the sky promises that you’re going to get here. This literally will be in writing. It’s a big thick book and its going to show you your return on investment and how you’re going to make money. Its designed to be brought to your accountant. Let your accountant look at it. Let your accountant ask questions. Let your accountant try to poke holes in it. This is what the others guys aren’t going to give you. They aren’t going to spell it all out for you and and I can tell you from personal experience, because long before Ron and I teamed up to start educating people on on solar, I was a residential customer from Ron. Ron came out to my. I thought it sounded too good to be true. I took his book of Ron that he made for me um to people in the financial industry. To CPAs that I respected saying you know there’s go to be something wrong here, this doesn’t sound right. Every single one of them came back and said uh uh I uh we can’t find anything wrong with it. And I can tell can tell you, not only did Ron meet and and exceed every promise made in the book of Ron, but I’ve been energy independent with a 0 electric bill now for what Ron? 3? 3 years now?

Ron: 3 years.

Eric: Umm and I get a check every month. I am making money. I took a $750 electric bill just on a residential home which is now 0 plus I’m getting a check every month, real money and the value of my home is increased. Now he can do that for my home think of what Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions could do for your business. Get your energy audit. Meet with Ron. He’ll come out and take a look at your building and he’ll tell it to you straight 855-SUNNY4u 855-SUNNY the number 4 the letter u or visit advancedsolarnj.com to learn more. Take a look at some of Ron’s projects. Give him a call. Schedule an appointment. Ron will come out he’ll meet with you personally. You’ll get your own big book of Ron, take it to your accountant. Ask your accountant show me how this doesn’t make me money? If a solar company calls you on the phone and says they can save you money, that’s a scam. If Ron tells you he can make you money, you’re going to have a new revenue stream for your business. You’re listening to The Energy Show. We’ll be back in a minute. 

*commercials*

Eric: Back on The Energy Show where we dispel the myths and misinformation about the going energy independent and tapping into the true power of the sun. And for your business this creates an entirely new revenue stream to support your business and improve your bottom line. Call it 855-SUNNY the number 4 the letter u or visit advancedsolarnj.com to learn more. Once again with Ron Urban the founder and president of Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions and if you’ve listened to this show for any period of time by now you know that Ron uh certainly doesn’t lack energy in anything that you do Ron and you know how do you have that energy to just keep going like the energizer bunny?

Ron: Well we’re talking about the business end of it I really believe in what I do, I really love what I do. When it comes to my fitness and things like that it’s kind of crazy. I’m a New Jersey guy. I actually go all the way to New York, New York. Tough love CO. New York NYC fitness which Joey he’s sitting here with me. And one of my favorite drinks out there is lion tea. Its all natural its made out of dandelions. Its excellent. Its one of the newest hottest teas out on the market. I think its great for your uh specially people that are healthy, its excellent for your liver and everything else. It cleanses your body and it tastes really good. So right now I’m actually sitting here with Joey and he can talk a little bit about each one of those things.

Eric: So Joey you’re responsible for the Ron Urban that we get to see and enjoy every day. 

Joey: That’s right

*laughter*

Joey: Correct

Eric: So dandelions uh how how do you make a tea out of dandelions. My grandfather used to make dandelion wine

Joey: Ok yeah well funnily enough that’s that’s uh with dandelion one they use the flowers primarily. Um interestingly what we do is we do ummmm a tea made from the leaves uh flowers and uh the entire plant the root as well. So ultimately uh the reason for that is because each part of the dandelion has uh specific health benefits. Umm mostly what we focus on is uh is is the prebiotic element of the the root which is much higher at certain times of the year. That is um extremely important from a from a fiber perspective because its basically an insoluble fiber. It also feeds your body’s natural probiotics. So its ultimately like a fertilizer for your gut. So what they’re finding now clinically is primarily um weight loss um you know and and energy overall um you’re your body’s functioning as a as a whole as one unit is very much based on the premise of how healthy the gut bacteria or bacteria in your gut are. And so dandelions really um contribute to that uh they also contribute to the detoxification of your livers and kidney a kidneys. So that’s umm really big in terms of you know uh keeping a clean uh healthy body to you know allow you to actually have the energy to to keep on keeping on. 

Eric: Yeah so its lion tea L-I-O-N like dandelion

Joey: Like dandelion tea

Eric: What turned you on to dandelion? Did you eat dandelion salad? Did you drink dandelion wine? I mean why why what I mean I I try to get rid of them in my yard, you’re trying to figure a way how to make a drink 

Joey: Uh well actually ultimately was my uh uh business partner at the uh time uh Raymond Rose actually he’s a a Greek of Greek descent. His uh mother would make it for him uh you know when he was younger. He actually developed um a heredity uh degenerative eye condition uh of the optical nerve called lebers uh disease. Uh and ultimately his mother put him on this regiment of uh um dandelion tea uh which seemed to somehow contribute to reversing the effects of you know this condition. Umm you know they the doctor continued to just you know kind of advise him to do whatever he was doing to keep doing it. Which was drinking this dandelion tea concoction and ultimately what led him to you know uh continue or what what led him to to start the the business what led him to actually create the concept was um the success of this. At the same time his friends were finding this product in the fridge when they were young they were trying to cure their hangovers and they found that it was great for actually curing their hangovers because of the the detoxification properties. 

Eric: Yeah there’s a lot of talk about um making sure that you have a healthy gut that you have the the probiotic advantages. That you have you know because you know everything seems to start you know in your gut and and this lion tea kind of helps put everything back into into where it should be right?

Joey: Correct. Yes yeah so I mean ultimately you know right now flowers and uh you know botanicals are you know uh a big space in the uh beverage space um you know they’re finding a lot of you know uh uh interesting uh you know medicinal properties that as a whole these things are are holding for people but dandelions specifically just acts as an overall you know cleanser, detoxifier, energizer and uh uh ultimate aid. 

Ron: So does that mean on the weekend I can drink more alcohol?

*laughter*

Eric: Well you did say it cures a hangover 

Joey: I cannot confirm nor deny anything

*laughter*

Eric: I’m talking with Joey from lion tea. Where do you find this stuff?

Joey: Uh right now you can find it on amazon. Uh they launched out in LA uh about 2 or 3 months ago so so you know its uh its available in LA. It available in New York City.  Primarily the natural organic space um is is really where you’ll find it. Um Fairways, you’ll find it in Fiarways. Well um so you know um and and then online and in the website liontea.com Yup

Eric: That’s pretty incredible and Ron you know I mean I can attest, you never lack any kind of any kind of energy so you must be drinking gallons of this stuff.

Ron: But I also workout with Joey. I mean he’s an excellent trainer. He’s got a a huge business here in the Brooklyn area and uh Tough Love Co NYC is a great company. If you’re looking to get fit, that’s the man to call. 

Eric: Yeah what kind of trainer are you Joey? 

Joey: Uh I focus primarily on uh strength training. I just uh finished a course in corrective uh exercise well because I find that ultimately to to prime the body to to you know function correctly um you know need to preemptively ensure that your that your joints and muscles and everything is is balanced or are balanced excuse me. Um you know so at the end of the day um you know preventative uh measures in the fitness space are um extremely important no matter what fitness level you’re on. Uh so primarily I would I would call it you know corrective uh exercise strength training uh high intensity. That’s kind of you know what I I uh I focus on personally. 

Eric: Yeah and and you’re a Tough Love Co NYC, um that’s interesting because you don’t here an awful lot about preventative training. Its its its usually you know here’s where you are and here’s where I can take and you know you push it as far as you can go um a lot of people when that happens they end up getting hurt and they just don’t end up going back to it.

Joey: 100% yeah I find that even experienced uh fitness professionals or people that uh are you know that uh uh personally uh you know on their own personal level are very you know fit if you will um there there are often times many things that they don’t understand from a functional perspective um that can you know greatly improve there there there gains in the gym more. Um you know they’re ability to focus on a specific muscle, especially you know you know the glutes. Which is really a big point of concern for most people because we turn them off so often when we sit down. Often times people will try to work one muscle specifically uh and they will they will be unsuccessful because you know muscles work in in in pairs not just singly or as as single uh you know um drivers so what you’ll find is that if you if you don’t uh uh reactivate that that muscle in specific ways uh or you know turn off muscles that have become overactive you you won’t get the results that you’re looking for. Uh  so it really is a science you know uh and that’s kind of uh what I’ve been focusing on. Its almost like more of a more of an approach you know like smart training.

Eric: And how do people find you at at at Tough Love? 

Joey: You know right now we’re busy redoing the website so toughloveconyc.com would be that would be where where you’d be going to. Otherwise you can reach out to me at joey@touchloveconyc.com

Eric: Well alright. And they can come and train with you personally?

Joey: 100% yup yup. I do I do a lot of in home private training. Uh I uh I have a studio in Green Point Brooklyn as well, on West Street, 67 West Street so. They can reach out to me

Ron: I just want to throw in after the show, Eric and I are going to have a few lion teas with vodka

*laughter*

Erica: Just a little vodka or gin whatever you recommend we mix in there

Joey: Yeah funnily enough there are some interesting mixes you can get in there you know 

*laughter*

Eric: That’s a whole other show I’m sure. Alright well Joey credit or blame to you lion tea and Tough Love Co NYC uh for giving Ron all of his energy on The Energy Show. Thanks for stopping by and uh uh having a chat

Joey: No worries, thanks for having me

Eric: Um so you know Ron as we as we’re wrapping up you know this hour again we’ve talked an awful lot this hour about fueling your business, about making sure that you’re business runs efficiently. That you have the energy to run your business and I I think business owners still don’t really realize because of all the cacophony of noise of all of these solar scams, these energy scams that they have out there, what the true advantage is to solar and how it was really designed to work. 

Ron: Solar is is to me one of the greatest investments that you can get in your property, your building. You know there’s so many scams they’re taking things from you. Uh I think for building owners to really understand its an investment in your building. You’re investing in your building. You’re you’re upgrading your building. You have a whole new source of revenue in your building. Uh are our and there’s so many companies out there and they’re not thinking about solar or selling solar commercial solar and getting into it. There’s I think this is where there’s getting to be a bad rap more and more in the industry. People like me with my background in electrical design and commercial building design, its huge for for builders, for developers, for store owners, for high consumers of electricity. You know there’s you know as you heard earlier here today is um one of the biggest uh roofing manufacturers, commercial roofing manufacturers you know so when you combine all this. People never want to do a commercial roof. You’re getting your money back for your roof in 1 year. You got a whole new electrical system. But what regular developers need to know that just are really into their warehouses or whatever, we’re increasing your uh square foot price. It blows your mind. My first job we tried tried 160,000 sq. foot warehouse we tried to get the owner to understand we had to speak to his attorneys who aren’t the right people. My head its its really the accountants. The accountants were really kind of for it and what my accountants said their accountant and to their father of this huge company is think about it this way – if your building is empty you’re a $1 a square foot with an empty building. This is what they researched. This is what they looked at. Once again if you use Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions we take care of maintenance we take care of all the products, everything for 20 year there is nothing you have to touch. So you its just like renting your building like a triple net lease. You got us. You don’t have to touch anything. Everythings done. You collect the money.

Eric: Yeah and unlike other so called solar companies, Advanced Solar and Energy Solutions you’re going to deal if your business if you’re a commercial owner if you own a warehouse, you’re going to deal directly with Ron. Ron’s going to come meet with you. He’s going to give you the big book of Ron. Everything is literally spelled out, word by word, line by line, and we challenge you to take it to your accountant. Look at the book look at what’s spelled out. Try to poke holes in it. You’re not going to be able to do it. 

Ron: It’s the the book is made for building owners. It stays the same since the day when solar came around. In the state of New Jersey and and its really there to prove it. I mean I hear people all the toughest thing in this industry that I see whether it’s a commercial job or residential job, which I’ll talk about soon, is that you don’t know what’s in that back. You know I had a uh commercial customer of mine, big guy, his father got solar and when I went through the lease he wanted me to show it to his attorney. One of the largest attorney’s in the state. If I had to sit with the attorney and explain to him what the lease is really so when he saw it he almost had a heart attack. He said this is unbelievable. So all these giant companies out there whether its commercial or residential, they have a way to scam you in a way you’ll never know. One of the things we do we we review every quote. We’ll review your customers our competitor’s quotes. If they if they’re better than us we’ll tell you go ahead and do it. Now you got and engineer you got an uh an accountant and you’ve got people seasoned in the industry to tell you what you’re really getting. But there’s a lot of hidden costs and a lot of ways to take your rebates. Our customers get it all. We don’t save you money, we make you money. You’re going to make a lot of money off your building.

Eric: Yeah its worth it to call 855-SUNNy the number 4 the letter u or http://advancedsolarnj.com/. Learn more, learn how solar is supposed to work and how it can truly revolutionize your business. This has been The Energy Show. Thanks for listening.

Benefits of Purchasing Solar Over Leasing

On episode 1 of “The Energy Show”, host Eric Scott sits down with the found and president of Advanced Energy and Solar Solutions, Ron Urban, to uncover the pitfalls of leasing a solar system, how the big companies are creating more costs for the customer, and where the tax incentives are really going.

Residential and commercial owners alike are being approached by big solar corporations to lease systems, but the benefits this renewable energy production has to offer are being wiped out. Ron is telling people to run away. Runaway from these giants and if you truly want your solar system to benefit you or your business then solar companies in NJ offer you the best deals.

When it comes to adding a solar system to your home or business you need to understand what you are getting into. If done correctly, adding this system can reduce your electricity bill to 0, will pay for itself in 5 years or less, and can even become a new source of revenue. That’s money in your pocket every month.

To get these benefits though you must be aware of how to obtain your system. Leases will wipe out these benefits while purchasing the system is the key to profits. Don’t let the sticker price of a purchase shock you for it will save you from the pitfalls of leasing as we discuss below.

Lease theft

The large solar contractors out there today approach customers with the promise of saving them money every month on their electric bill. This part may be true but the lease they hand over for you to sign is one that takes away the rest of the benefits of having a solar system.

Ron explains the lease as a complicated document that the salesmen won’t even answer questions about because they have not been trained or educated on what their system actually provides. Ron knows though. He started out as an electrical contractor and engineer before opening Advanced Energy and Solar Solutions at the turn of the century when solar started making it’s a big move, and has seen first hand what these leases do and don’t provide for a customer.

For starters, any system installed by the larger companies under a lease is owned by those companies. They have taken over your roof and any of the benefits you were supposed to gain from having a renewable energy source. Most leases are 20 years, meaning if you wish to move from your home you now have to sell the lease that is attached to it. This has created nightmares for realtors, and some won’t even be willing to represent you as a seller.

Solar Facts about Solar farms in NJ

Solar fact: Energy from a solar farm feeds into the main grid

Energy is a hot topic and these days you will hear more and more about renewable energy sources, clean energy sources, climate change, solar power, solar farms and related topics. Before we discuss the topic of a solar farm is is probably a good idea to consider some solar facts. We all depend on a large degree to non-renewable energy sources such as oil and gas. Whether you live in Hamilton, Middletown, Point Pleasant, Red Bank, Spring Lake or Toms River, NJ, you will use a certain amount of oil and gas.

However these traditional energy sources wont last forever and have negative impact on the environment. This means humankind is slowly being forced to consider other energy sources such as solar energy. Understanding some solar facts is important if you want to consider solar power as an alternative energy source. The sun produces vast amounts of energy and has done so for billions of years. Even though solar energy can be harvested to generate electricity, the sun only shines during the day and some areas don’t receive enough sunlight for effective application.

In order to generate energy from sunlight we use solar panels and towers. If follows a solar farm is just a large scale version of this concept. A solar farm could potentially be a sustainable land use project. An interesting solar fact is that in most cases solar panels on your roof or on a solar farm is not for your direct use. There are practical and financial reasons for this. One reason that solar power and consumption don’t synchronize well. So it makes more sense for solar power to go into the main grid. You effectively sell the solar power you generate back to the energy companies.

By installing solar panels you become an energy generator. This means you are both a consumer and a producer. You pay for the energy you use and you get paid for the energy you generate. So solar panels don’t have to be on your roof or even on your property. By putting solar panels on a farm you can generate more energy and make more money. There is more space on a farm which means panels to be mounted on motorised towers that can effectively track the sun and maximize energy output.

Residential Solar in Middletown, NJ

The 3 types of residential solar installations in and around NJ and how to mount them

The U.S. solar market has skyrocketed by 75% in the year 2012. Not ever has residential solar power been this much available to the households in the U.S. Installation of an average sized residential solar system in NJ usually takes not more than 24 hours. However, there are 3 main types of residential solar installations that make solar in Point Pleasant, Red Bank, Spring Lake and Toms River located in the state of NJ an affordable and safe investment.

Go Solar: The three types of residential solar systems available

• Solar power projects are grid connected with no batteries- The first and most common residential solar power system that connects your solar panel installation with the main electricity grid is called the grid connect system connected with no batteries. It enables you to bring energy back into the grid through your meter and be financially rewarded for it by your solar company.
• Grid connected with battery backup- The second most common residential solar system, known as a ‘Stand-Alone’ solar power system is generally used for residential properties located in the remote geographic areas where the cost of connecting the solar panel installation to the main grid is restrictive. The system charges a battery bank, which in turn is used to supply power to a residential property. A generator is usually kept available to provide support to the battery system.
• Off-grid residential solar power systems- Residential solar systems where people are not connected to the electricity grid rather creates, stores and use all their own power is known as off-grid residential solar power systems. They need to know about their exact requirement of solar power and also how much access they have to the solar resource (sun).

How to mount them?

Most residential solar electric systems are mounted directly to the roof of a building while some are mounted to a delicate framework on the ground.
