You’re Paying Monthly for Your Electricity One Way or Another!

Why not make an investment in solar that will continue to pay for itself?

Financing Solutions from Michigan Solar Solutions - financeMany people don’t like the idea of financing anything.  In many cases, that makes good financial sense. However, when it comes to paying for your electricity, consider the following: You are making a monthly payment anyway, in the form of an electric bill, aren’t you? That bill is going to continue to increase every year for the rest of your life 4-8% - that’s a given. But if you choose to go solar, you get rid of part (or all) of your electric bill and replace it with an investment in your own solar array. And, that investment won’t go up every year – it’s fixed.

You will save tens of thousands of dollars through the warranty period. So, consider going solar and don’t be afraid to switch your monthly electricity payment to an investment in a solar array you will own outright. Think of it as an investment in your family or business!

The best return on investment is often improvements in energy efficiency, e.g., LED lighting upgrades. In fact, energy efficiency and solar energy make even more sense when taken together.

We have staff dedicated to developing these unique building upgrade projects.
