Located in Upstate New York, Triplett Machine has been a manufacturer of specialized custom machined parts for companies across the nation since 1984.
But the precision components they produce require running several large pieces of machinery that draw a lot of electricity. As electric prices kept rising, so did operating costs.
Looking for a way to get these costs under control, Triplett Machine President Doug Triplett, Jr. turned to solar energy.
Watch as he explains how his company started saving by installing solar with Paradise Energy Solutions.

Triplett Machine is enjoying numerous benefits from switching to solar.
"The folks are Paradise Energy did a great job with the installation. Very neat, very professional. We hardly knew they were here."
Triplett Machine uses 54 CNC machine tools to create precision instruments for the space, aerospace, defense, and commercial industries. Those machines require a substantial amount of electricity, which can become a substantial expense for the business.
With electric rates on the rise, getting energy costs under control helps Triplett Machine stay competitive as goods from low-cost countries put pressure on American manufacturers.
The savings generated from their solar system will help boost their bottom line and free up more capital for reinvesting in the business.
Triplett Machine had been approached by solar installers in the past but was hesitant to pursue it, unsure of solar’s ROI or ability to fit their business model. However, after hearing about solar energy’s benefits from other businesses in the area who had gone solar with Paradise Energy, they gave it a closer look.
Paradise Energy provided a clear outline of the energy and cost savings that solar would bring, along with how the installation process would go. “Everything was pretty clear to us after we really sat down and looked at it that it was a good investment for us,” Doug shares.
They also provided an outline of what the installation process would entail, ensuring that the construction of the system wouldn’t interfere with the manufacturer’s daily business or cause a loss in productivity.
