Solar Install in Cumming, GA

12.21.12
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!!!

    Thanks for commenting! Sometimes HOA will allow it, have you checked with yours already? Solar is an investment that pays for itself over time. And yes, the results are definitely impressive!

    Our house is too large for us and we will be selling in the near future. But, definitely our next house!

    In the past the HOA could stop this type of installation but currently the HOA cannot stop the install. I love my solar.

    My home has (12) 190) - 230 watt panels and (31) 235 watt panels. Total just under 10kw because it is considered commercial over 10kw. My bill each month is 10.69 which is a CUSTOMER charge for being a customer. The company keeps additional credits

    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.
