Case Study

Solar Panel Installation

Russel & Carolyn

Novato, CA

In the town of Novato, CA, a short drive from San Francisco Bay, homeowners Russel and Carolyn decided it was time to stop paying high electric rates and start generating their own clean energy. We provided them with a custom solar system to meet their energy needs. This 6.20 kW solar electric system meets 94% of their energy needs on an annual basis, and will save them nearly $2,500 per year in electrical costs. Additionally, Russel and Carolyn will be able to enjoy these benefits for years to come, as the estimated lifetime of their system rounds out to roughly 30+ years.
