Featured System:

Bartzsch/Rice System

Featuring SolarWorld modules and Enphase microinverters, Scott Bartzsch and Tim Rice’s PV array is now producing clean energy, which will offset ~80% of their annual electricity consumption. This system will pay for itself in under 10 years, and will continue to support their sustainable lifestyle long into the future.
     Scott is an accomplished artist who has found recent success creating custom airbrushed shoes for a niche market of the sneakerhead subculture. Check out his custom shoes at www.theshoodude.com or by following SWBARTWEAR on Instagram.
     Tim and Scott chose BPVS because of our local roots, and unwavering commitment to quality. BPVS has been serving customers in the Berkshires for almost 30 years, and proudly boasts an A+ rating as an accredited business by the Better Business Bureau.

Our customers understand: "Photovoltaics (PV) is a signature technology for the post industrial age, there are no moving parts except those infinitesimals; photons and electrons moving at light speed. In contrast to many electric generation technologies, there is no combustion, no need to contain pressure. No noise, no dynamic vibrations, no lubrication or adjustments are needed. The fuel is abundant and free, there is no waste. With PV's technical sensibility, progressive cultural and ecological benefits attach and together define sustainability. Our customers are clean energy consumers and generators." -Christopher Derby Kilfoyle ©BPVS 2014
