Sonoma, CA

Nestled in the heart of Sonoma, Greg decided to install a solar system with Simply Solar to avoid paying high electricity bills. Greg’s solar roofing installation will generate 93% of his electric needs and he will only pay $9.29 a month for electricity! In the first year, he will see approximately $1,520 in savings which will only increase over time. In 25 years, Greg will see well over $80,000 dollars in savings, simply on his electric bill.
