Resident to Host Solar Open House

Fresh on the heels of a successful Home Energy Audit by UMD for Clean Energy another College Park resident is having a open house to educate others on Solar Power.

OK full disclosure, that resident is me.  This Saturday we are having a Open House from 11am to 2pm.

We have completed the installation of a Solar Water/Electric system on our home and would like to open our home to others who may be interested in learning more about solar power. ( If you have talked to me in the past 6 months you know I’ve been giddy about the installation of our solar system.) I feel pretty strongly that each of us can make a huge difference in the climate and our reliance on fossil fuels

Solar systems are less expensive and easier to install than you think. If you are insterested in lowering your utility costs and helping to save the planet at the same time Solar is worth checking out. There are MAJOR incentives available right now to help offset the cost in the form of credits and rebates by the goverment.

The company that installed our system (groSolar) is offering food and refreshments. A representative from the company will be there to go over the system and answer any questions. I will also give a short presentation that goes into how we went about deciding on Solar for ourselves and the entire process.

Hopefully the sun will be out in full force that day and we can see the system in action. Come on out, grab some lunch and lean about solar power. Click on the Open House clink to RSVP if you are coming.

Even if you can not make the open house feel free to check out the web page I made up on the subject. If provides many details and I’m open to answering any questions I can.
