Seeing the sunshine through the snow
February 2011 was part of an unusually snowy winter in the Northeast – not a time when many people were even thinking about solar panels, much less having them installed. But the Rorer family of Newtown Square, Pennsylvania had been looking for a way to cut their electricity bill while doing something good for their community, so solar power was an obvious choice.
The Rorers contacted Real Goods Solar, and with the help of both the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protections’ Sunshine Solar program and the 30% Federal Income Tax Credit, they secured a 6.75 kW system that produces over 60% of their electrical needs, and they couldn’t be happier.
