At Buffalo Solar Solutions, Old-fashioned Customer Service Meets Today’s Technology

At Buffalo Solar Solutions, Old-fashioned Customer Service Meets Today’s Technology

When South Buffalo residents Tyler and Alicia Uebelhoer decided to open Buffalo Solar Solutions in the Summer of 2015, they poured their personal savings into the business venture and dedicated themselves to providing customers with the best possible service and a pressure-free sales approach. While it took a tremendous amount of effort — not to mention a lot of blood, sweat and tears — to get the business off the ground, the entire Western New York community is beginning to see the benefits.

Now going on two years old, the company no longer operates out of the Uebelhoer’s home. Showing steady growth every month, the employees of Buffalo Solar Solutions have worked out of their new office at 1212 Abbott Road, Suite A, since October.

Rural Outreach Center Seeks Sponsors to Adopt Needy Families This Holiday Season

The Rural Outreach Center (ROC) in East Aurora hopes to spread some holiday spirit this Christmas season by asking local individuals, families, businesses and organizations to “adopt” a deserving family and help make their holidays a little brighter. 

“This Christmas season we anticipate assisting 12 to 15 families who are actively pursuing their goals toward self-sufficiency,” said ROC Executive Director Frank Cerny. “Those receiving gifts this holiday season will be asked to make a contribution of some sort back to their community as part of the empowerment process. Virtually all participants in the program readily agree to do this as they too want to help others in some way. We call it the ‘pay-it-forward’ portion of the program.”

Two Family Farms Protected by Western New York Land Conservancy

Two Family Farms Protected by Western New York Land Conservancy

Last week, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced $4.9 million has been awarded to help farmers protect 2,843 acres of at-risk farmland in Upstate New York, preserving the land for agricultural purposes and protecting it from development. These grants will help the Western New York Land Conservancy protect two farms — D&J Brawdy Farms and Triple Oak Farms — both located in the Town of Eden.

While Eden is a small, rural, agricultural community, Triple Oak Farms and D&J Brawdy Farms face development pressure that threatens many farms in Erie County. This is something that worried the Brawdy and the Kappus families every day. “We can see a housing subdivision from our office window,” said Dennis Brawdy. “We are relieved that this land, which has been farmed since the 1800s, will always available to meet the agricultural needs of our community.”
