A handful of low-income Chula Vista homeowners have reduced their carbon footprint while saving money with the help of a partnership between Sullivan Solar Power and Grid Alternatives to offer free solar installations to qualifying homeowners.
"I applied also because of the fact that it's environmentally friendly and that it would lower our bill," said Lisa Yescas-Beitia, who received a free solar installation. "We have (three) grandchildren that we pay private school for. It would probably enable us to put another one through school."
"This is the first time I'm really looking forward to getting my bill," she went on to say.
