Solar Install in Cumming, GA

One of our customers, Andrea Brown, added 22 solar panels to her already energy efficient home. Not only did Sawnee EMC give her a $1500 cash incentive when the solar installation was verified, but last month her electric bill came to -$7.99 because of the extra power her panels produced!!!

    KMS Woodworks wow I never have seen an electric bill like yours. If that had been my bill I wouldn't bother with solar either.

    5 to 6 cords of woodstove heat at about $200 per cord mixed with about $1800 a year in propane for the furnace and hot water. What you guys pay for in AC electricity we make up for it in heating.
