Solar power can eliminate your electric bill and increase your home’s value, all while reducing your carbon footprint. Plus with the 30% tax credit and $0-down loan options, there's never been a better time to GO SOLAR! 


THE BENEFITS OF GOING SOLAR:
 

  • It's cheaper than you think! More and more, folks are realizing that they can easily enjoy the money-saving benefits of solar thanks to the 30% federal tax credit, low installation prices, and the option for $0-down, fixed-rate loan options.

  • Electric Bills Disappear. You can greatly reduce or completely eliminate your electric bill by going solar. You own your home, why not own your power? Especially if by continuing to rent from the utility company, you remain exposed to inevitable rate hikes.  
     
  • Years of Free Energy! Average solar systems are paid off in 7-8 years. Which means you can enjoy years of free energy during the panel's 25 year warranty.
     
  • Now Is The Best Time. The 30% federal tax credit is still in place, which greatly reduces the cost and improves the return on your solar power investment. Plus, our prices remain virtually unaffected by the solar tariff. So Going Solar is still as cheap as ever!
     
  • You Can Even Make Money. Any excess power that your solar system generates can be sold back to the utility company via net metering.
     
  • Homes Sell Faster. Solar energy is one of the best home "remodel" investments you can make. Surveys show that for every $1,000 saved in utility bills per year, approximately $20,000 is added to a home's value. Plus studies have found that homes with solar sell twice as fast as similar homes in the same neighborhood, along with homebuyers being willing to pay more for them because of the solar.
     
  • You're Buffered Against Rate Hikes. Energy rates in La Plata Electric Association’s service area have increased 5% annually, on average, for the last twenty years. LPEA’s power supplier, Tri-State Energy, has projected that rates could increase as much as 8-9% per year in the future. Install a system now and never worry about rate hikes again.
  • Create your own energy independence. Producing and owning your own power empowers you personally, and reduces our country’s dependence on fossil fuel sources.

  • Protect the environment by producing your own clean energy. The fossil fuels that are most commonly used to generate electricity produce toxic emissions that pollute our environment and contribute to climate change. These sources, primarily coal and natural gas, are rapidly being depleted and will become increasingly expensive. Solar power is a truly clean and renewable energy source. The average solar powered home will reduce almost five metric tons of carbon pollution a year, which is equivalent to the savings from not driving your car for an entire year, or planting 122 trees!

  • Take advantage of financial incentives. The federal government offers a 30% tax credit, which greatly reduces the cost, and improves the return of your solar power investment.

The Products We Use

The main components for any solar PV installation are the solar panels and the inverter - which converts the DC electricity from the panels to AC for your home & the grid.  

Having worked with a variety of solar products over the last 20 years, we have some very specific ideas about which ones work well together - and which ones don’t.  

When we select the appropriate panel and inverter combination for your installation, our goal is to find the most efficient and cost-effective setup available given your roof space. And if your criteria includes American-Made, we can provide that option as well.

Panels

We only install panels that have been tested to the highest standards, have a proven track record when it comes to reliability, and are warranted to produce at least 80% of its rated power after 25 years.

If you have plenty of roof space, we'll select a high quality panel that will not only work well, but may also save you money. If your roof space is limited we'll suggest a higher efficiency panel to maximize your solar yield. 

With no moving parts, there is little likelihood you'll need to make a warranty claim. But we'll both feel better selecting a company that will still be around in 25 years. Which is why we also only use diversified manufacturers that have been in business for many years and are rated as Tier 1.
