Speakers weigh the financial side of photo voltaic cells 19.11.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Sam Jones of All Season Financial Advisors told an audience of 63 people at Moots Cycles on Steamboat’s west side Tuesday night that his investment in solar energy really began to pay off at his home in rural Steamboat when his wife purchased a hybrid plug-in car. “That accelerated my pay-back time by half,” Jones said. “It’s normally 12 to 14 years. Remember, you’re off-loading gasoline (costs). The home run here is to plug in a car.” He was speaking during the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s Solar Talking Green event at Moots Cycles. Jones said he has solar panels for heating domestic hot water on his roof, but in terms of realizing a return on his investment, he may not live to see that date. That is primarily because it is a thermal system as opposed to photovoltaic panels generating electricit. “Our solar thermal project I would have to say, that was probably a bad investment,” Jones said. A better opportunity, he said, has been the photovoltaic panels he purchased in the Clean Energy ...

Sam Jones, of All Season Financial Advisors, told an audience of 63 people Tuesday evening his investment in solar energy really began to pay off at his home in rural Steamboat when his wife purchased a hybrid, plug-in car. “That accelerated my pay-back time by half,” Jones said during Yampa Valley Sustainability Council's Talking Green event at Moots Cycles. “It’s normally 12 to 14 years.

Community members who want to start home-based child care centers in the Steamboat Springs area will soon be able to access a lot more financial help to get their businesses going. To learn more about starting a licensed, home-based child care center, call Sharon Butler of the Child Care Network at 970-879-7330. Concerned about the lack of child care capacity here, the city of Steamboat Springs is investing $20,000 in a project aimed at increasing capacity by making it easier for people to start licensed home-based child care centers.

"I would encourage people to think of this as a business opportunity," government programs manager Winnie DelliQuadri said of the home-based ...
