Event Videos and Testimonials

"I liked that today was educational and not a sales pitch. We learned the different ways consumers can get solar through leasing, loan or cash outright, showing the benefits to each method." — Crystal C.

“If you are interested in a solar system of your own, there is nothing better than sitting down with homeowners who have had solar for a few years. They provided information we wouldn't have thought of on our own.” — Joe M.

“Pretty much anywhere you go there is the pressure to buy something. And just having someone available to answer your questions without pushing you to purchase is comfortable.” — Maymie N.
