Solar was easy, a good investment and helps with climate change.

What interested you about going solar initially? Why do you support solar energy?

Techy things tend to always interest me. Amanda became interested after taking a globalization class. It opened her eyes to some of the horrible things we’ve done to the nature for the sake of energy. Making a logical conclusion of what should be done for our earth, and financial conclusion of it being doable… even profitable in the long run, it was a no-brainer.

Why did you choose to go solar with Solar United Neighbors of Ohio?

Honestly, it was available in my area.

What benefits did you experience going solar with a co-op?

According to the quotes provided, we were able to shave off 20% off our overall bottom line. They were also very helpful with hooking us up with a local solar installer.

Has anything surprised you about going solar?

I honestly was surprised about how everything was handled for us, from permits to talking with the electrical company… I didn’t have to lift a finger.

Do you have any data on your solar system’s performance? What electricity savings have you seen since going solar?

The goal with the size of the system was to be 90% of my entire yearly usage.

What advice would you give to someone who is considering going solar?

Ask questions, get down and dirty about the numbers with someone at your co-op!

Is there anything else you would like to add?
