HelioPower and 1BOG will offer free solar information, including a solar webinar on Thursday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m. PT. To sign up visit: http://solarcoachellavalley.1bog.org/faqs-and-webinar/.
HelioPower’s Scott Gordon will be representing the company. Scott has led very successful solar webinars for 1BOG in the company’s previous solar San Diego campaign. He has been quoted extensively in the Coachella Valley press about this current solar community discount program.
Excerpts from recent press quotes from Scott include the following information from The Desert Sun:
That means a 4 kilowatt system, about 20 panels, will have a net cost of about $10,857, after state rebates and the federal tax credit for solar energy, said Scott Gordon, HelioPower’s vice president for residential sales.
The package will also include computer monitoring of the system so any maintenance problems are detected quickly, Gordon said.
For Coachella Valley residents, the break-even point for such a system could range from five years to 12 years, depending on their energy use and their power provider, Gordon said. Southern California Edison customers, who pay tiered rates, would get a quicker return on their investment than east valley residents in the Imperial Irrigation District service area, who pay lower rates, he said.
