Carol and Susan both went solar back in May 2020 in Chino Valley, Arizona. Their systems both consist of REC 290-watt solar panels.
System Size: 9.3 kW
Module Type: REC 290
Inverter: Fronius Primo
What was your main motivation to go solar?
Carol: Saving money, but also I want to do my part in helping with the environment.
Susan: I liked the idea of not dealing with APS. I liked the idea of being able to be primarily self-sufficient on power and not depending on them and it helps the Earth.
What is the best part of having solar?
Carol: Getting my bill and seeing that I have a credit rather than having to pay a bunch of money.
Susan: Everything. I love the system, I love the way it looks, and the production of it is great. I think that John when he designed the system, was right on what we needed.
What was the most enjoyable part of the process of going solar?
Carol: Meeting your representative John. He is great I’ve called him a couple of times recently and he’s always been so helpful. I haven’t met anyone that isn’t really nice that has come out here. I’ve always been so excited about getting this, it’s something that I’ve wanted for a long time and I couldn’t have it when I was living in my mobile home in California because it was too old- ever since I moved here I’ve been really excited about getting it.
Susan: The guys that came out were friendly and communitive. They blended right into the family, we offered water and they were gracious. They weren’t offensive in the work they need to do, they were courteous, that was the most enjoyable thing because I’m not really big on having strangers in my space and they blended right in.
