F10 Home Solar System Purchase - Home Owner Experience Based Presentation for Buyers
Invalid Image Link

Thinking of installing a solar panel system at your home? Or just curious about these systems? If so, you won't want to miss this Zoom presentation by the First UU EcoJustice group (no vendors present). A 45-minute presentation followed by a 45-minute Q&A session will be hosted by First UU homeowners who have solar panel systems installed at their homes. Topics will include (1) the process from engaging a vendor through switching on the system, (2) what equipment is installed, (3) approximate cost and financing options (often surprisingly low cost), (4) viability for homes without a South-facing roof (good news!), (5) monitoring and maintenance, (6) what happens if you need a new roof or move, and (7) the federal tax credit. Note that "off-grid" systems and backup batteries will not be covered.

Note that the pricing is per household. This presentation also offered on 3/28/2022.
