There’s never been a better time to go solar – period. With a variety of incentive programs, tax credits, and savings available, solar is now more affordable than ever before. In fact, thanks to technological advances and incentive programs, the price of clean solar energy has dropped 80% in the last decade!
Why rent energy from your utility company when you can own your energy instead? Solar allows you to lower your monthly utility bills immediately and over the 25+ year lifespan of your solar array. That’s savings your family will experience for a lifetime.

Switching to solar is now much more affordable than it was in the past. When you own your energy source, you’re able to lock in that portion of your energy use and protect your home against rising utility bills. Plus, recent studies have even shown that homes with solar sell for higher value than traditionally-powered homes!
In addition to the immediate savings on monthly utility bills, companies can reduce their tax liability with solar through government rebates and incentives. The annual savings make solar a low-risk, cash-flow generating investment with a significant ROI. Plus, businesses who make the switch from solar spread the message to their communities that they’re dedicated to a sustainable future. How can your company grow with solar?
Our work doesn’t end with your solar installation. We’re your partner for the lifetime of your array through our custom operations and maintenance plans. Customers have continually trusted our scheduled preventative solar maintenance services, along with continuous monitoring of alerts, periodic review of ongoing system performance, and annual reporting of energy production. We handle service calls from other companies’ arrays, too. Let’s work together to maximize your solar solution!
Our handy two-minute quiz asks a series of questions to help you determine whether your home is a good fit for solar. Everyone’s situation is different, and we appreciate the opportunity to learn about your unique interest in solar!
Choosing solar for your home, company, school, or nonprofit organization helps contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future for our region. It’s no surprise that traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, which release harmful pollutants into the air that negatively impact climate change, air quality, and public health. Choosing renewable energy reduces our society’s dependence on finite fossil fuels. The clean energy harvested from the sun is natural, renewable, constant and clean.
