Customer Testimonial

“From start to finish, Tyler and the crew cared about us being happy with our whole experience. They sized the correct system for our needs, and were professional with the install. Great job, guys!”

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, NYSEG), which ranges from approximately $15–$17 a month (plus tax).

**Due to numerous factors, pole-mounted systems tend to be more expensive than roof-mounted systems. 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.
