The benefits of solar energy

With today’s tested, reliable and long-lasting solar panels combined with latest technology optimizers and inverters, you can make an immediate difference by harnessing the sun’s power turning it into electricity to run your home or business.

Solar Saves You Money

The solar system you own generates electricity that you would otherwise buy from your utility. Solar reduces your electric bill significantly. The savings increase over time as the cost of your utility electricity goes up.

Solar Is Clean Energy

The fuel is sunshine. With no moving parts to break, solar is low maintenance. You can take action to address climate change and save the environment by generating your own clean electricity. You are helping your community.

Incentives Help You Earn Back Your Cost

Incentives are based on installation date; future incentives will be lower than they are today. Learn about the federal, state and utility incentives here.

Solar Is Long Lasting

Solar panels will produce power for 25, 30, 35 or more years.

Solar Increases Your Property Value and Resale Price

Properties with solar systems sell more quickly than those without. Benefits of going solar are passed to the next owner.

Solar Works In Washington State

Whether you are located east or west of the mountains, a solar system will work well if you receive direct sun for at least six hours a day year-round. The ideal location is a sunny south-facing roof shaded by tall trees or other buildings. In Western Washington, cooler temperatures mean that solar panels operate more efficiently than in higher temps. Rain and snow naturally clean panels regularly. Long sunny summer days significantly increase solar output.
