“Every family that elects to install a solar electric system in their home helps to diversify the energy mix for the Town, the State and the Country. The more we balance our sources of energy, the more we create a sustainable environment for ourselves, for our children and for all those who will come after. While everyone is impressed by the big, flashy energy projects, it may well be the individual residents using the “Solarize Newtown” program that makes the most longstanding contribution to our community.”
– Patricia Llodra, First Selectman of Newton

- Couldn’t Have Been Happier
“We couldn’t have been happier with how things went with our solar installation through Astrum Solar. We were kept informed throughout the whole process and everything was delivered in a timely and efficient manner. Whether it was pre-sales or project management, we have been thrilled with the results.”

- Our House is Becoming a ‘Green’ House
“We went solar as another step to greenify our life in the modern world. I am very concerned over the health of Mother Earth and do what I can do each day to make my carbon footprint as small as possible. We reuse what we can, recycle what we can’t, and overall try not to over consume. The timing was right with the incentives in place that we were able to justify the expense of the solar panels. Helps too to know that we should break even in approximately 6 years, instead of 15 when the cost of a solar system was much higher. I’m very excited to have this dream fulfilled. Slowly, our house is becoming a ‘green’ house.”

- Long-Term Savings
“Over the next 20 years, I’ll be saving about $37,000 – for me, solar was a no brainer.”
- My Most Treasured Jewel
“Excluding family and best friends, this 48 solar panel system is my most treasured jewel. It is 98% efficient, generates well over 10,000 kilowatts per hour annually and exceeds my entire house electrical needs.”
