Woodstock Welcomes You! | Business
Woodstock Welcomes You! is a weekly article from 11alive.com featuring a recently registered business in Woodstock and this week we’re speaking with Russ Seifert, owner of Creative Solar USA. As the name suggests, they provide creative solutions for renewable energy needs. Russ’s background includes 16 years with Mercedes Benz RBM of Atlanta.
“I realized the need for a local company to be able to provide renewable energy products for the home and business, especially when the 2008 Tax Credits went into effect,” Russ said. He went on to mention that since then, prices for solar energy products are becoming increasingly affordable and the average homeowner has affordable options available.
“We’re starting to gain momentum in several states, including Tennessee and North Carolina,” according to Russ. “One of our big project s at the moment is the 475 foot long solar canopy at the Kirk-Rudy Development in downtown Woodstock. Kirk-Rudy is a company that builds solutions for addressing and paper handling for the direct mail, printing, newspaper and card industries and chose Creative Solar USA to develop a custom renewable energy source.”
According to Russ, “A lot of businesses don’t realize the payback for putting renewable energy to work for them. Depending on their location, they can see a payback in 18 months to 4 years and combine that with the tax credits now being offered, they can see real savings.”
Russ stressed the importance of building long term relationships with their clients, with an emphasis on educating them on renewable energy. He said,”Just going in and trying to sell solar panels isn’t going to work, it takes that relationship to make it all work.”
