A Note About Solar – Reduce Before You Produce!

Generating solar power is an excellent way to reduce utility costs. Leverage what solar offers by making the home as efficient as possible first. An efficient home requires a smaller solar system to generate power, which means the system will:

  • cost less
  • be paid off more quickly
  • have a faster return on investment
