Go Solar

Why Solar?Solar installation

Investing in solar panels will provide your home with free electricity long after the 5-8 year payback period. When paired with a battery storage system, a solar system can serve as a back up power source during outages. Even if you are a renter or your property is not conducive to solar, you can support solar projects and earn credits on your electricity bills with Community Solar (see below).
