The lease or purchase of a solar PV electric system for your home is an investment in your time and money. You have 3 options, Lease, Buy or DIY. This presentation shows what happened when one homeowner considered all three options.
SolarCity will present the lease option, offering a no-money-down option to have renewable energy on your roof that matches or beats the utility rate your paying. Open Sky Energy, a local solar installation company will present the opportunities and issues of purchasing and owning PV.
Finally, why not Do-It-Yourself? Phoenixville based Community Eco Center will discuss the resources being developed to help you git-r-done, with some Smarts and Parts assistance.
