EmPower Solar of Island Park is going all out to help residents of Lido Beach grab the solar dream.
They recently announced their Lido Beach Community Solar Pricing Program. Born of meetings with local residents and civic groups, the idea has come to fruition and EmPower is offering a $750 discount plus an additional sliding scale of incentives for residents in the town of Lido Beach to go solar.
The more residents that go solar through the program, the bigger the discount they all get.
Their goal: 400 kW of solar by the summer.
To help you get there, EmPower Solar is offering Lido Beach homeowners an upfront discount on the price of your system. With an extra tiered community pricing system, the more homeowners who go solar, the more everyone saves.
As part of the program, they will be hosting a solar tour day and event on April 20, 2013.
Residents can see solar power systems right in their own neighborhood, see how they work, and talk directly with what EmPower refers to as their ambassadors [Em-bassadors? ; )].
To qualify for the Community discount, Lido Beach residents must sign their contract with EmPower Solar by the program deadline of May 31, 2013 and participate in at least one ambassador activity.
So Lido Beach residents, if you’ve ever been thinking about going solar, now is the time. Might I also mention that while solar prices have been going down, so have the incentives available, and it is unlikely they’ll continue to be this good.
There’s really just a question to ask with your current LIPA Bill :
what’s the payback period on that?
What’s the payback on a solar power system? 5 1/2 to 7 1/2 years is usually about average.
What are you doing about your share of pollution created for the electricity you use, in addition to your “carbon footprint”.
I personally like to think of it this way- are you planning to retire soon?
Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you were not going to have an electric bill for the remainder of your retirement? You know that electric bill isnt going to do anything but go up between now and then!
Too young to retire? Well may I suggest just retiring from paying an electric bill 5 to 7 years from now?
