5 Reasons to Invest in Solar Today

1. 52 cents a kWh (Green)


2. Architecturally Designed
3. Cash Rebates
4. Federal Tax Credits
5. Clear AIR (Green)
The roof now = ROI
52 cents per kWh
Time-of-use metering means your solar
production is worth 52 cents a kWh!

Each 1KW of solar should produce


150kWh a month

Each 1KW of solar is worth $78.00.

10KW is worth $780 a month.

Permits are pulled with documents created at the citys request. Sometimes we have to create a top view, a side view an upside-down strawberry shortcake view and
distance between the roof line and the neighbor. Then the engineering can be a bear if it is anything unique, which in some cases the can be anything solar. The basics
are line diagram of the electrical with focused detail on the capacities and load-break of all attached components.

An Example:
150 acres of unusable land
32 Megawatts of Solar Potential
196,275 Solar Panels
142 million dollars before rebates, tax credits, etc
32 million dollars after rebates, tax credits, etc
Will generate 59,000,000 kWh a year
Enough power for every home in Rolling Hills Estates
