Why Go Solar?

A solar photovoltaic system turns your roof into a clean energy generating machine! Solar electricity is beneficial for many reasons, including the following:

  • Generating electricity with solar PV reduces monthly electric bills.
  • Solar + Storage allows solar panels to provide electricity after a storm when the grid is down.
  • Solar energy reduces greenhouse gas emissions!
    • Residential electricity accounts for 24.3% of the City's GHG emissions
    • Commercial electricity accounts for 35.1% of the City's GHG emissions
