I truly enjoyed obtaining my GREEN designation the other year, and accordingly – whenever a new client mentions they have GREEN features within their home, I rejoice! I think we would all like to save on our home utility and heating bills, and when I heard from my clients that their monthly Con Ed costs (in a 3200 square foot home) were around $200 a month (from the customary $600+ for gas heat) , I was amazed! This $200 would also include light, cooking costs so the savings are huge!
What are solar panels?
Solar panel. Solar panels absorb the sunlight as a source of energy to generate electricity or heat. A photovoltaic (PV) module is a packaged, connect assembly of typically 6×10 photovoltaic solar cells. … The most common application of solar panels is solarwater heating systems. (Wykopedia).
My clients utilized NRG Solar Energy, and they have leased solar panels for 20 years. There was no cost to install, but a 20 year lease was required. This lease, understandably, is easily transferred over to a new home buyer (after an application is completed), and the new home owners continue with the solar panel lease . There is a base cost for the solar panels, and my clients pay approximately $106 a month. To quote them as stating ‘they love the savings an how their utilizing solar panels is also helping the environment” is an understatement.
New Rochelle is GREAT!
