Why we went solar: Our system has enabled us to jump the S curve. We also went solar because of the financial incentives, rebates, and savings. The system makes us a leader, as the saying goes: “Don’t tell me your values. Show me your budget.” We can say that we are part of the solution.
Benefits we’ve enjoyed since going solar: In year one, we’ve save an estimated 57,069 pounds of CO2, 60.3 pounds of SO2, and 83.6 pounds of NOX. That’s 68,462 equivalent miles of reduced driving, 4.4 equivalent acres of trees planted, and more than $200,000 in savings so far.
