Customer Testimonial

“Just wanted to thank Kyle W. for his consistent professionalism and knowledge of the product. He made my experience a pleasurable one. Also the upgrade to my electrical panel was the best experience since I purchased my house. They gave me one that is rated for 200 amps, and expandable up to 42 breakers. Your team has outdid themselves. Looks amazing and saves me already. Joe and Clay were the best too! Would recommend it to everyone.”

The numbers in this case study pertain specifically to this customer. Prices and monthly solar payments are based off of current market prices and numerous other factors. (Get your free solar consultation and solar panel estimate »)

*Customers are still responsible for paying the basic hookup fee to the utility company (in this case, National Grid), which ranges from approximately $15–$17 a month (plus tax).

**This customer chose to pay off his system faster by choosing a 10-year term, which has a lower interest rate but a higher monthly payment. Most of our customers choose a 15-year term, which in most cases brings their solar payment down to the same cost as their average electric bill or sometimes even cheaper! Keep in mind whichever term the customer chooses, they can pay off their system early with NO prepayment penalties.
