Solar Power is at your Fingertips!

July 29, 2014

Solar Power is at your Fingertips!

Living in a climate with well over 300 days of sunshine a year, solar power (photovoltaic solar panels) just seems like a natural easy choice. Yet we often hear concerns expressed about the upfront cost to purchase the panels. Fortunately if you’re committed to using the sun’s power for your home and saving resources, here are several options to consider.

PURCHASE SOLAR PANELS. Several local businesses are ready and eager to help you determine if this is a good option for you. Solar panels have become more affordable and rebates/credits may be available

LEASE SOLAR PANELS: A growing popular alternative lease programs allow you to lease panels rather than purchase them. Equipment is serviced by the leasing company, they calculate your projected savings and the lease is transferrable with your home. Solar City is one such company serving the Tucson area. http://www.solarcity.com/

PURCHASE BLOCKS OF SOLAR POWER FROM TEP: TEP customers can purchase 150 kilowatt hour (kWh) "blocks" of solar energy produced by local photovoltaic (PV) arrays. Each block will offset an equivalent amount of traditional power allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of clean, green renewable energy at an affordable price.

Consider SOLAR…a BRIGHT way to power your home!
