Los Angeles (PRWEB) October 1, 2007
Empire Solar Solutions (http://www.empire-solar.com), specializing in providing solar electric systems to residential and small commercial consumers that desire to capitalize on the environmental and economic benefits of renewable resources, announces it is bringing its services to the greater Los Angeles area. Empire Solar Solutions is an affiliated partner company of Empire Today, one of the Nation's leading home improvement companies - ranked one of the Top 200 Brands in the U.S. by Advertising Age, and an award winner for exceptional customer service and business ethics.
In late 2006, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislature on the Million Solar Roofs Plan, aimed to make California the nation's leader in solar energy. Under the plan, consumers who install solar panels on their homes and businesses are eligible for significant rebates. Tax incentives also are available for those installing solar solutions.
"When I ran for governor, I vowed to make the environment the centerpiece of my administration and turn back the clock on pollution," said Gov. Schwarzenegger in a statement released by the Governor's office.
"California is in a position to lead the nation in setting the trend to maximize the advantages of solar energy. You can save money on your monthly electric bill, get a tax credit, and help preserve the environment simply by taking advantage of solar solutions," says Joe Cannon, Vice President of Empire Solar Solutions.
According to a report by the Associated Press, California is targeted to become a world leader in solar power, and has approved approximately $3 billion in customer rebates over the next decade to encourage people to install solar panels on their roofs. The initiative allocates $2.5 billion in rebates for existing homes and businesses that install solar panels. An additional $350 million in rebates will be offered for solar installations on new homes.
Empire Solar Solutions is the first major brand name specialty solar provider to makes solar solutions easily accessible for consumers and small businesses. Empire Solar Solutions' Los Angeles area office will service Southern California including: Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Northern San Diego counties.
Empire Solar Solutions comes directly to the consumer's home for a convenient, free solar analysis. Empire experts assess energy use on-site and identify target areas to improve energy efficiency, then design a system specific to the consumer's needs. Empire administers all permitting and rebate applications, and procures and installs the recommended quality system utilizing trusted name-brand components.
Fulfilling a full-scope commitment to energy efficiency and customer satisfaction, Empire schedules a complimentary one year system check-up and cleaning for every solar system installation.
"With high energy prices, rolling blackouts, and growing air pollution problems, everyone in California will benefit from the building of a million solar roofs in the next ten years," said Bernadette Del Chiaro, Clean Energy Advocate with Environment California, the leading sponsor of the Million Solar Roofs bill.
Mainstream consumers in Southern California and around the globe have been motivated to explore the environmental and economic benefits of solar energy by Al Gore's 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth; Leonardo DiCaprio's 2007 documentary The 11th Hour featuring the input of Mikhail Gorbachev, physicist Stephen Hawking, journalist Paul Hawken, and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai; and the ongoing environmental activism of Ed Begley Jr. as documented in the HGTV series Living With Ed.
A report by Environment California shows that installation of just 100,000 solar roofs in Los Angeles would cut global warming pollution by 300,000 tons per year, and reduce smog forming pollution by 90,000 pounds per year.
In order to bring solar power as a convenient, affordable option to residents and businesses throughout Southern California, Empire Solar Solutions is offering consumers a free in-home solar assessment by a professional Empire consultant to analyze the specific energy usage of each home or businesses and design a solar system specific to meeting those individual needs.
Further, in addition to State and Federal incentives to help cut overall costs on installing an Empire solar solution, Empire offers attractive financing packages including deferred financing and low, affordable prices.
Empire Solar Solutions uses experienced, licensed, certified installers, backed by world class customer service. A free checkup and cleaning of systems is offered after the first year.
