GREEN FOCUS: Cool Things That Are Green

Powering Homes Through Solar
3/28/2013

How many times have you thought how nice it would be to generate your own energy from the power of the sun. For many reasons the idea of solar sounds great from reducing your carbon footprint, feeling empowered knowing your energy is coming from your roof, not putting money toward utility companies that monopolize the power lines, and for financial reasons of generating 'free' power. 

However, the idea and reality of putting solar on homes has been a challenge due to barriers such panel inefficiency, maintenance, and upfront costs needed to buy solar.  Fortunately, the industry is adapting by reducing barriers for homeowners due to companies like, Solar City.

 is the largest residential solar installation company in the United States.  One reason for their growth is because they are a turnkey solution to your solar needs.  They do it all from consultation, design, installation, monitoring, and maintenance.  So, homeowners can rest easier knowing they are dealing with one company throughout the entire process and lifespan of your solar.

Another reason for their growth is that they have made it cost effective.  There are no installation or maintenance costs for your solar system.  Everything is monitored online.  When a panel breaks, Solar City replaces it at no cost .

Also, they offer financing and a power purchase agreement (PPA).  Through a PPA, homeowners lock in a long term kWh rate.  As utility rates rise year over year, yours stay the same. 

Solar City has established themselves nationally as being reliable andgood to work with.  They have a growing presence in Portland by having a local branch.
