Yes, you will not only save money by going solar, but you will become the owner of independent and clean energy. By investing in your own power source (solar panels), you will end years of renting expensive energy from your local utility company. Utility rates increase an average of two to five percent per year! Through a solar energy system, you can eliminate this substantial yearly price increase (think about the price increase when compounded over 25 years)! Through our solar marketplace, Pick My Solar has helped homeowners save up to 20 percent on solar panel installation when compared with going directly through a solar installer.
