About the Presenter:
Ted Vansant is Founder and President of New England Commercial Solar Services (NECSS) and brings 22 years of experience with solar energy to every project. NECSS is a New Hampshire company providing low-cost solar construction and financing services to commercial, municipal, non-profit and educational clients throughout New England. Ted believes that every solar panel that is installed helps address climate change through lower emissions and by helping the general public “see” clean energy. This belief drives the business towards greater educational outreach including NECSS’ Solar On Schools Program. Other new initiatives include helping customers become net-zero with solar PV, heat pumps and vehicle chargers.
Ted currently serves as Chair of Clean Energy New Hampshire’s Solar Working Group and is the former chair of Clean Energy New Hampshire. Ted and his family enjoy lots of free solar energy at their home from their solar hot-water and solar PV systems and they look forward to having an all-electric vehicle soon.
