How much will I save?
Every dollar you spend on making your home more efficient saves you approximately $3 to $4 in energy costs.

Or, click here to use our online solar savings calculator, which provides an easy way to see what your approximate cost and payback would be on a solar system for your property. Every dollar you spend on making your home more efficient saves you approximately $3 to $4 in energy costs.
What size solar system do I need to power my entire house?
The proper size solar array is widely dependent on your average electric usage, climate, roof angle and many other factors. You can multiply your average daily electrical demand in kilowatt hours by 0.20 and the result is the approximate size of solar array in kilowatts needed to meet your electrical demand. For example: if your average power usage is 50 kilowatt hours per day then you will need a 10 KW power system. Applying our efficiency products, you can reduce that same system size down to 5 or 6 KW to power your entire house and will save you a ton of money.
Does solar really add equity to my home’s property value?
Today’s 4% interest rates represent a $400 per month mortgage payment for a $100k loan. If your electric bill averages $200 per month and you have eliminated that expense, you have added about $50k in equity and your home is much more attractive to buyers because they no longer have a power bill to pay each month when purchasing your home.
What if I may be too old to get my money back out of my investment?
You’re never too old to save money! Solar systems add value to property increasing the resale value. You will be paying less for your electric bill and with the financing programs we have available you could actually pay less for the financing and any electrical charges together than you were previously for your electric bill.
Do you offer financing plans in which I could immediately save energy dollars each month while not having to make an upfront, out-of-pocket investment? In other words, could my energy savings more than offset the monthly cost of a no-down-payment loan?
Yes, absolutely. With our new 18-MONTH NO-INTEREST, NO-PAYMENTS OPTION arranged with Elements Capital Group via Capital Community Bank, you pay nothing for the first 18 months; all while our LED lighting and solar energy products drastically cut your utility bills. After that initial 18-month period, you can use current federal and state tax credits to offset more than 50% of the loan principal. Your monthly energy savings will more than cover payments on the reduced principal during the balance of the loan term, so in short, “NO PAIN, BIG GAIN!”
This option allows you to lock in today’s energy rates for the future. As the price of electricity rises, your payments will stay the same. At the end of your loan, all further production will be free.
We also have a number of other financing options available with 6-MONTH, 12-MONTH, AND 18-MONTH “SAME-AS-CASH” OPTIONS in which you’ll pay no interest if the loan is paid off within those periods. Plus, we offer TWO OTHER CONVENTIONAL LOAN OPTIONS that offer very competitive interest rates.
