“I was very impressed with the Solarize Hamden program overall. I first found out about Solarize at the town information session in November, and from there decided to pursue a solar photovoltaic system for my own use. The town’s chosen installer, C-TEC Solar, made a very positive impression on me and I chose to not only have a ground mount system installed, but also volunteered with the program and invited my neighbors to my home to show them what a solar installation looks like.”
“Solar was one of the first improvements I made to my house in New Haven. Every month I made a utility payment was money I’d never see again. Rates went up again this past January… That’s even more money saved.”
Stephan is with solar installer, Ross Solar, and lives in New Haven. Ross Solar recently hosted a solar open house for Solarize Cheshire.
“The cost and return made sense. I’ve always been interested in the technology, but when Solarize Cheshire was introduced going solar was a no-brainer. There’s never been a better time to go solar! While it’s just one small solar installation… if enough people to go solar we can negate a new coal plant.”
“I went solar because I wanted to save some money and do my part for the environment.”
“I’ve always wanted to go solar – a good friend of mine had done it and raved about it. So when I bought my house in Greenwich, I got a quote to get the work done. Bottom line, it just wasn’t in the budget. Fast forward 3 years later…when I heard about the Solarize Greenwich program, I jumped right on it. My quote from Renewable Resources was so good (down about 35%) that I signed up immediately. The construction went by in FLASH (believe me, I’ve had lots of construction done, and these guys were light speed). I saved money the first day they flipped the switch!”
