Project Review

Solar Case Studies Quick FactsTheir Challenge

When this family were faced with a roof replacement project and increasingly high electric bills, they decided to explore adding solar to their Pleasanton home. It was important to them to find a contractor that used quality equipment, had a good local reputation and would go the extra mile to maintain their home’s aesthetics. They also wanted to be sure their solar company could effectively coordinate with their roofing contractor.

How They Saved

After collecting numerous bids, the family narrowed their search to SunPower dealers to ensure they would have high-quality, long-lasting solar panels on their home. After seeing our trucks in their neighborhood, they researched Solar Technologies and met with our Solar Energy Consultant, Nick Bahrenburg. Nick outlined a solution by designing a system capable of meeting more than 80% of their current electricity needs, while still looking great on their home. Nick was also able to connect the family with a local credit union who could finance the project for $0 out of pocket, with a low monthly payment. With solar savings from Day One, the family are thrilled to be powered by the sun, and couldn’t be happier with their all-black SunPower solar panels.
