Attendees from each open house may enter to win an iPad mini valued at $299. No purchase is necessary to qualify for the drawing on June 15. The 16GB, Dual Core A5 Chip iPad mini with Wi-Fi has a display of 7.87” H x 5.3” W. Weighing in at just over a half pound, the iPad mini is ideal for monitoring a homeowner’s solar system using a free app that connects to the system’s production monitoring.
The solar open houses provide an opportunity to view a live solar installation and get questions answered by the property’s homeowners and Baker Electric Solar energy consultants. Attendees are able to view the homeowner’s before and after electric bills. Guests are encouraged to bring their electric bills so that a Baker solar energy consultant can estimate the monthly savings a solar system might provide them.
Solar system affordability is on everyone’s mind, and the open houses let people voice their concerns and ask questions. Baker Electric Solar consultants are ready to explain the multiple financing options available, including: HERO financing, zero interest financing for purchase, along with a zero-down, fixed monthly payment lease.
At each open house, attendees receive a fact sheet on the property’s solar system. As an example from an open house last year, the sheet detailed how the Baker Electric Solar rooftop-mounted 6.5 kW solar system consisted of 26 – REC 250 solar panels with a PV surface area of approximately 360 square feet and used Enphase215 Microinverters. Factoring in utility rate increases and locked-in low energy rate savings, the homeowners of the property were projected to save more than $74,000 over 20 years. With the system reducing CO2 emissions by 6.3 tons annually – it was the equivalent of not driving 15,000 miles.
“With the variety of financing available, we are seeing more homeowners than ever anxious to learn about ‘going solar.’ Attending an open house is the perfect way to quickly see what a system consists of and how it works,” said Baker Electric Solar Marketing Manager, Ashley Arant. “A glossy brochure just can’t do our solar story justice, but an electric meter showing energy credits being generated can! Come out and join us at one or more of our spring solar open houses, and be sure to register for our iPad mini drawing.”
