Natural Awakenings Tucson

Tucson Solar Installation at All-time High

Oct 12, 2011 04:38PM

In 2010, Tucson more than doubled the number of annual solar installations and 2011 is on track to continue this trend. The cost of solar panels has dropped significantly; utility rebates, combined with state and federal tax credits now make the cost affordable for most homeowners and businesses, with a rate of return that is better than a savings account.

Melissa Black, mechanical engineer and president of Solar Gain, Inc., says, “It has never been a better time to install solar energy, saving money and being good stewards of our environment.”

As part of the energy solution, reducing our use of fossil fuels to make electricity and utilizing Tucson’s abundant natural resource, the sun for a wealthy economy, Solar Gain recently installed a 13.8 kW solar photovoltaic system that yielded the residents a utility bill of $7.54. Solar Gain is affiliated with the Southern Arizona Regional Solar Partnership and the Arizona Solar Energy Association.
