Solar power has been a popular alternative to traditional methods for years and years. Even though the technology has gotten better and the information is all out there, it may still seem like a financially unattainable goal for the majority of folks. I'll admit that it still seems pretty futuristic to me! It also makes a crazy amount of sense. Why not utilize that great ball of fire in the sky for our benefit?!? The solar savvy folks over at Geostellar are making it easy for even the most clueless of clients (talking about me here...) to make solar power an attainable part of moving into an eco-friendly lifestyle.
They invited us to perform at a recent Solar Powered Happy Hour. Basically, we had a house show in the home of one of their local clients! Members of the community were invited to see the solar installation, ask questions of the happy customer and chat with some Geostellar designers, financiers and employees to get a better idea of what the whole process is about. There is talk about having more of these parties around the country and I'll be sure to let you know about them in case we end up close to you and you want to join us!
If you jump over to their website, they have an easy to use map that lets you type in your address and see how effective solar panels would be if added to your home. The site says they use lasers and airplanes. That's pretty cool. Once you see how much sun your house gets, they show you a thorough estimate that includes the different tax credits you would qualify for and how much you would be saving on your electricity bills! Seeing all those numbers when I typed in my address was eye opening. Because they handle all the details with installations and they handle all the financing themselves, they can be sure that you are getting the most for the least and you end up needing to put $0 down. What? Awesome.
I don't want this to drag on and sound like an advertisement. You should go check it out for yourself.
I'll be running around with CLB at the end of this month out over to Denver CO and then on down to southern California. All those dates are listed over on his calendar! Hope you all are enjoying the summertime!! I'll see you soon.
