How Joseph and his family gained peace of mind with solar
I looked at seven companies. Of the six people I met, GreenBrilliance was the most knowledgeable and the easiest to work with. I liked the overall perspective that I got both from the initial sales consultation and the knowledge level of the GreenBrilliance consultant.
In October 2019, Joseph Schulz was considering new avenues to cut down on expenses and save money. “I wanted to save money, and we have lots of natural sunlight here in Washington DC. So, I figured it would be a good decision to go solar. With the approaching year-end, and with it the end of the 30% tax credit, my wife and I decided to install solar panels.” Joseph says.
After considering several alternatives, Joseph finalized on GreenBrilliance. “I looked at seven companies. Of the six people I met, GreenBrilliance was the most knowledgeable and the easiest to work with. I liked the overall perspective that I got both from the initial sales consultation and the knowledge level of the GreenBrilliance consultant.” he says.
A 10 kW flat rooftop solar solution optimized for efficiency
After a detailed analysis of the home and the family’s energy requirements, we suggested a 10-kW flat rooftop system with high-performance solar panels to maximize efficiency. Further, GreenBrilliance representatives were courteous, thorough and efficient at every stage of the purchase and installation process. They made several reasonable recommendations for improving our home’s energy efficiency, explained the typical cost and recovery time for each one, and even worked with us to come up with a water treatment system design that fit our budget.” Joseph chimes in.
Given the volatility of electricity prices, solar energy has provided Joseph’s family with a great way to keep expenses in check and record significant savings. “In the long run, we believe that the cost of electricity will climb at an increasing rate. Reliable and dependable, solar power would help us offset the hike. In just the first year, we are not incurring any electrical cost at all. We are using less electricity than we produce, without ever changing our usage habits. At this rate, our breakeven solar cost will be easily realized within four years.” adds Joseph.
For Joseph, the icing on the cake is the digital tracker on the smartphone app. “We like checking the app daily to check stats on how we are doing. It is so exciting to see results on graphs and charts, along with seeing our lifetime savings going up!” he concludes.
