WHY GO SOLAR?

Water heating is a home’s second-largest energy expense; going solar is a great way to lower your energy bills and reduce your reliance on energy companies, all by harnessing free energy from the sun. According to Energy Star, a federal program that promotes energy efficiency, a solar water heater can lower the average household’s water-heating costs by 50%. For the typical family spending $317 per year to heat water, that translates to savings of about $160 per year.

WHAT WILL IT COST ME?

With incentives and rebates, the total system cost is $3,737.90
which can be financed with a Downstreet loan between 0-3%,
depending on your income.
