Why did you decide to go solar?
I’ve always been ecological-minded, but most options have been too expensive for me. But, between the co-op being there to help with the process, and lower the cost, and the federal tax credit, I was able to move forward. Plus if we stay in this house, it will be eventually be paid for with no to low electric bills.
Did anything surprise you about going solar?
I was surprised by the existence of the co-op. It was a fairly quick install. You can get as involved or not with the co-op option. I didn’t have a lot of time to invest into learning all the details, but felt comfortable with this way of doing it. Before the co-op, we had several vendors come out, but they all seemed like schister salesmen.
