Our electricity bills immediately dropped, and we've gone from $700 bills in August to under $200.

On average, our bills for 2009 were $340 per month, while this year, 2016, they've been about $111. We've even had negative bills. We're figuring about a 7% return on our initial investment, and it's tax-free.

Host Comments

We've become more concerned over the last few years about conserving energy, recycling, etc. We always thought solar panels would be a good idea, but didn't think we could afford them. After talking to Ambassador Energy and figuring up the return on our investment, we went ahead with the installation.
