Affordable Solar Program Launched in United States for Middle-Class Homeowners

United States is one of the best places if you want to go solar – but only if you’re rich enough. Due to the steep upfront costs of around $32,000 in cash, only those upper-income families can afford to install solar arrays. Home Professionals, however, looking to change that. This new project hopes to help middle class communities see the sun in a different light.

The cost for the installation to the middle class families is little to $0 down. The homeowner gets solar panels on their roof and a new reduced electric rate with this solar program. If interested you can sign up at solarvisit.com. Home Professionals predicts that it could save individual families up to $2,400 a year from their electric bill, which they hope could then be spent on other essential bills.

Home Professionals is excited to be promoting one of the first dedicated solar repayment systems for middle class families allowing them to get a low solar bill and an even lower electric bill. The goal is to install solar arrays to over 32,000 homes by the end of next year. By using training programs, various federal and state incentives, money from companies and private investors, they aim to keep the costs to those who provide and install the panels as low as possible.

The panels are operational and our monthly bills have shrunk enormously.

Through covering 30% of the costs with available Government Rebates & Incentives, along with funding from private investors to eliminate upfront costs, the project aims to kill two birds with one stone – saving Middle-Class families money, while also making big fossil fuel polluting companies help to cut energy emissions in the state even further.

  1. I keep seeing solar information everywhere, so far this is the best article I’ve been able to read that explains what’s going on.

      1. Sun run came to my house stated they would replace my singles and install solar panels at no cost to me. I would only pay a cheaper electric bill. This sounds far fetched . Is this on the up and up ?

        1. When solar companies refer to no cost, they are usually talking about a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) or there being no upfront cost on the panels (free installation & no down payment). With a PPA, the solar company installs the panels (which the solar company owns) and you enter in an agreement to purchase electricity from the solar company, usually at a lower rate than what you’re currently paying. Looks like they are throwing in new shingles as part of the deal. This is a low cost way for homeowners to switch to solar energy, but doesn’t save you as much money as actually owning the panels.

          When solar companies offer no upfront cost, this normally means that you get free installation when you buy the solar system. It also means that no down payment is required. Solar systems can cost up to $32,000, so most homeowners finance the solar panels. In the long run, owning the solar panels saves you the most money as the homeowner. Once the solar panels are paid off, you’re essentially getting free electricity.

          Make sure you understand which they are referring to. Check the numbers to make sure that everything checks out.

        1. Usually the PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) option is reserved for homeowners as it would be on their property. You could, of course, talk to your landlord about this opportunity and ask that they would look into it. You may reach some agreement with them where you could both be happy.

    2. Mark, I’ve also been seeing solar ads on Facebook all the time. They’ve been driving me crazy! I wasn’t interested until my neighbor decided to look into it more and find out if it actually makes sense for to go solar. He said that it’s a good idea and that he’s doing it. I’m still on the fence, but I’ve decided it’s worth looking into more to find out for myself.

    1. Typically the warranty is for 20-25 years. Typically at a given power output.
      Example 100 watt panel after 25 years would 80 watts of power.
      The mechanical warranty is about 10 years.
      There are panels still operating well past this.

  2. This seems pretty cool. I’ve been interested in solar for a while now. I live in an area where there are coal power plants, which don’t seem to help our air quality.

  3. Something to consider : you still have to pay for the panels, but you often get the installation for free. You do not get them completely free. You may not be paying the power company as much but you will still have a power bill on top of paying off the loan for the equipment. there are other fees that you will find associated as well.

    1. Depends on the program you go with. With a ppa there is no cost for panels or installation what you pay for is the production of the panels for your energy bill. If you use more power then what your panels produce the additional power would be purchased from the power company. This would be determined on available roof space for your homes current power consumption. No additional costs as long as the homr structurally qualifys for it.
