March 2015: Illinois Resident Offsets Entire Energy Bill!
StraightUp Solar recently installed a 4.3 kilowatt solar array on the Mullen Residence in Goodfield, IL (central Illinois outside of Bloomington).
Renee is thrilled by her system and says, “We just got our first bill from Corn Belt Energy. Our system offset our entire monthly usage and produced 61 kWh of extra electricity! We are so excited and pleased! And this is on top of the satisfaction of knowing we avoided using fossil fuels.”
A few of the stats:
- $21,000 savings of utlity bill over the next 25 years
- Net cost of system: $7,500
- 6.8% IRR
- Lifetime Environmental Offset: Displaces carbon emission from the
annual electric use of 11 homes
