At the end of the day, knowing that we have taken a big step to create a better world for our daughter is the only payback I need.

I recommend putting in solar as soon as you can!
I put in Solar Electric 14 years ago, a 2kW system, and solar hot water 12 years ago. Both of these systems have performed without upkeep saving both money for my household and resources for the health of the planet.

$0 down and cash back is a good deal.
The Sierra Club's program with Sungevity gave my the push to go solar. In the long run I do not expect SAVE $ with the deal, but I am reducing my use of dirty energy, I am helping an important industry and setting good example for my neighbors. I wish I could do more but it is a start. I hope others join the solar club, we need a culture shift!! Especially in AZ.

Burning fossil fuels seems so illogical!
We chose to go solar mainly to reduce our carbon footprint for future generations and to invest in solar technology and manufacturing. Leasing seemed the best way for us and for the economy. Ours is a small step towards lessening our impact & harm to the ecological services that sustain Life on the planet. It is a start for the common good and worth the sacrifice considering the alternative. We have hope because sensible and practical energy technology and use isgaining momentum; there is no turning back.

I'd recommend solar to everyone!
I am a big proponent of renewable energy solutions! It meant a lot that Sungevity would give $750 to our local Sierra Club chapter. Our electricity bills have dropped from $230 to $58 this year, and according to our last utility statement, we have offset 96% of our electric usage and most days we are net energy producers! The payback for the system is almost immediate as we are saving a lot each month. Perhaps the biggest side effect of going solar is the fact that we have really become more conscious of our overall home energy use in order to best utilize the solar array's production.

Meter runs backward - even in the fog!
We live on the north coast in an all electric house. We put on solar panels this summer and our meter runs backwards, even in our foggy area. Wonderful investment in every way!
