C&H Salvage Corp is a family-owned Hudson Valley business supplying used auto parts to the repair trade and public since 1958. As a Gold Seal Certified Automotive Recycler, they ensure their business maintains the highest standards in the industry with regard to environmental, safety, and business practice concerns.
C&H is operated out of their 20,000 sq. ft. facility in Campbell Hall, NY. The site is comprised of three connected buildings which house office space, vehicle dismantling, and parts testing facilities. The 92.16 kW solar array is split into two equal parts, one on each of the main garage/warehouse buildings. The arrays are built using 288 Canadian Solar 320 watt solar panels feeding 6 Fronius Primo power inverters. Lighthouse solar worked extensively with the C&H team to ensure that both the system design and the installation procedure had a minimal impact on their business operation.
Lighthouse Solar’s System Design Engineer Bryan McGurn comments, “This is an exemplary project for showing what we do here at Lighthouse Solar with respect to the commercial side of our business. We love working with like-minded, local business owners who see the value that solar can provide to their business and are willing to make the investment to realize that value.”
This system will provide over 100% of the annual electrical load for C&H Salvage, and when combined with their waste oil heating system, makes them completely energy independent!

"We are committed to building strong client relationships by using industry-leading expertise and customer service to provide high-quality, innovative solar energy systems.
Energetic, professional, and great to work with in every way. We had a wonderful experience and are so pleased that we get a big tax credit AND are producing almost 100% of our home electricity now (selling the rest to Central Hudson and getting a discount on our bill). Rebecca E
Our sales representative, Jessica Barry, from Lighthouse Solar was patient, thorough, and knowledgeable. The company installed our system quickly and neatly. They were a joy to deal with. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Jacinta B
Lighthouse installed a solar array for our home. Everyone of their people with whom we had contact was polite and professional. They handled every aspect of the project efficiently. We could not be more satisfied! Mark S
I have nothing but positive things to say about the people from this office who worked with us--starting with Matt Calardo and continuing through Jason Iahn. They were all nice, knowledgeable, and committed to making this purchase easy for us. Communication was excellent. I think their pricing was fair--at least to the extent that I was able to calculate a very favorable internal rate of return for the investment. I recommend them without reservation. John B
Great customer service. Total clarity on what we were getting into. Although it was a difficult winter, the installation proceeded well. Installer team was great. All the paperwork was clear and complete. We would recommend Lighthouse without qualification. Larry L
We are thrilled with our solar power installation. This is a company that does what they say they're going to do, in a timely and professional manner. They helped us get around the various peculiarities of our site and fiscal oddities. The results are impressive! Thank you! Lena D.
We couldn't be happier with our experience with Lighthouse Solar. They provided expert advice on our system design and sizing, and clearly explained the rebates, tax credits, and financing options. The installers were quick, professional and cleaned up so well when they left you would have hardly known they were there. Lighthouse handled all the paperwork for the permits and inspections. And I love the Lightgauge real-time monitoring website that lets us track both our solar production and power usage. Its nice to know that, in just under one month, we've "socked away" over 400 kWh to help carry us through the winter. Bridget B.
Our experience with the staff of Lighthouse Solar has met or exceeded our expectations in every way. From the initial system design through the final electrical permits everything went without a "hitch" You also have to appreciate their lifetime warranty on their workmanship etc.. Dave G
