Green Solar Technologies Founder Nicki Zvik Announces Partnership with LG

Reacting to the USMCA, many leading solar panel manufacturers halted overseas production and introduced manufacturing facilities in the United States. One of the most notable of these companies is Green Solar Technologies' new partner, LG, which recently opened a solar manufacturing plant in Huntsville, Alabama creating hundreds of American jobs and boosting both the U.S. job market and our nation's economy. Nicki Zvik, Founder of Green Solar Technologies, announced the exciting new partnership, stating, "GST is proud to partner with LG, a company that recognizes the importance of manufacturing the highest quality solar panels possible and the benefits of doing so in the United States.

Going Solar? Don’t Do It Yourself!

Going solar is a courageous decision. Most of us grew up in a society where solar wasn’t an option and it was expected of you to pay in to the power company for your electricity. Over the past ten years, the implementation of solar technology has exploded and more homeowners are excited about the prospects of producing their own electricity. But sometimes as a gesture of pride—and other times as a tactic of curbing their expenditure—a homeowner will opt to do it themselves. Although we at Green Solar Tech nologies applaud the decision to make the switch and we are excited about all the benefits that come with it, doing it yourself can very easily turn into a catastrophe if you are not a solar installer by profession. Here are some of the reasons why it’s a much wiser decision to let the solar company be your friend when you are going solar.

Addressing Fears for Going Solar: Part 2

Fears Going Solar

In the previous essay, we discussed some of the ways fear can get in the way of making the switch to clean solar energy. To read that essay, go here .

Solar energy has gained a lot of popularity over the past several years, but there are still millions of homeowners across the U.S. who know little about it. Don’t let fear of the unknown prevent you from taking advantage of this unlimited natural resource. Sooner or later we will all be going solar because it is the way of the future. Many cities around the country and around the world have already committed to 50%, 75%, and even a 100% solar energy carve-out within the next decade and for good reason—solar is so much cheaper than fossil fuels and significantly better for the environment in the long-term.

Here are a few more common...

Addressing Fears for Going Solar: Part 1

Fears Going Solar

Fear can be the driver of many decisions. Sometimes fear is our friend and plays the role of the voice of reason, reminding you of all the logical reasons why something is a bad idea. But sometimes fear can act like a blind spot, haplessly positioned right between you and your better interests.

For those trapped by their dependency of the utility company for electricity, fear can prevent them from a much better alternative that exists. Renewable energy has come a long way over the past 10–15 years, but homeowners still paying these old world companies to power their homes are often left in the dark about how easy and effective it would be to make the switch. Because of this, these fears are never addressed and this often leads to the delays—or worse—prevention of one of the most economical and eco-friendly decisions...

Solar Incentives in the Sunshine State

Posted on Apr 8, 2019

Florida is widely known as “The Sunshine State” (and for good reason). Florida is in the top five sunniest states in the nation, right up there with Arizona, California and Hawaii. That being said, it’s no wonder why Florida’s incentives to go solar are some of the best in the U.S.

Both Duke Energy and Florida Power & Light (FPL) offer net metering programs for residential solar owners. Net metering allows homeowners to sell the excess energy created and stored by their PV system back to the utility companies.

In addition to attractive net metering incentives, solar is also exempt from property tax. That’s right, instead of property taxes increasing (as one might assume since value is being added to the home), homeowners will actually pay no more in taxes after the installation of their solar panel system. But Florida takes the tax...

GST Enters Into Agreement with Spectrum Properties

Posted on Mar 4, 2019

Green Solar Technologies, a U.S. solar energy company, recently entered into an agreement with Spectrum Properties LLC, a California-based real estate investment company specializing in ADUs, to install residential solar panels on homes acquired by Spectrum Properties LLC. ADUs (accessory dwelling units) are separate living units either attached to or separate from the main home. The arrangement with Green Solar Technologies is an effort by both companies to offset the environmental impact of the ADUs’ additional energy usage.

Nicki Zvik, founder of Green Solar Technologies, and Shay Yavor, founder of Spectrum Properties LLC, are working together with the intention of improving people’s lives while addressing pressing environmental needs. With a rapidly expanding effort by federal and state governments to use and encourage the use of...

Leave Solar to the GST Professionals

Solar Panel Installers

by Geddy Friedman

Congratulations! You made the first step. After all those years of paying off those pesky electricity bills from your local utility company, you’ve finally decided to take action and investigate some renewable energy alternatives. You know, this is precisely the kind of decision that leads homeowners to bump into odd serendipities like super lower electricity costs, a cleaner environment . . . and yes, the ever so liberating energy independence.

There are many forms of renewable energy, but for practicality purposes, it all boils down to wind or solar. Over the past decade, solar has left an indelible mark on the green economy and has proven its stripes as the most dependable (as well as affordable) means of energy production know to home and business owners across the United States. And this...
