Why is Solar Right For You?

Common reasons for Going Solar:
Lower or eliminate your electric bill: Power prices may have dipped recently, but the long-term outlook for energy prices show a steady increase.

Increased Home Value: If the time comes to sell your home, you’ll be selling a home with little or no electric bill– a powerful selling point.

Safe Investment: Has your retirement fund taken a hit lately? In addition to increased home value, Residential Solar can produce small, but certain long-term returns.

Reduce Your Footprint: An average residential solar electric system reduces C02 emissions by 89,429 lbs. per year; the equivalent of planting 130 trees every year.

Electricity, Hot Water, Heat

There are three types of solar:

Photovoltaic or PV: Produces electricity to power your home
