Tracy and Scott Goegebuer of Long Beach, CA did themselves a big favor when they entered their names in the 2011 Real Goods Solar Sweepstakes. As last year’s grand prize winners, the Goegebuers won a free solar system from Real Goods Solar and soon witnessed their monthly electricity bills decrease to less than one dollar.

For the third year, another lucky winner will have the opportunity to go solar for free. The Real Goods Solar 2012 Free Home Solar Sweepstakes continues through August 31.

Qualifying homeowners can enter for a chance to win their own 4kW solar system, featuring high-quality Canadian Solar modules. The annual Sweepstakes rewards one entrant from CA, CO, CT, MA, NJ or VT with a free solar electric system for his or her home (up to 4 kilowatts DC) valued up to $25,000.

According to Tracy, she and her husband had been interested in solar for quite some time. “We signed up to be on the Real Goods Solar email list when we stopped at their retail store and Solar Living Center in Hopland, CA. When we got the email about the Sweepstakes, we naturally entered, but didn’t think we would actually win.”

The Goegebuer’s first electricity bill since installing their free solar system was $0.94. “We are so happy and excited!” Tracy continues. “We are doing something good for our environment and are experiencing real freedom from our energy bills. It’s incredible!”

While the Goegebuer’s solar installation was only a small portion of the 506 megawatts (MW) of new solar installations that came online during the first quarter of 2012, they are unique to receive a free solar system. Real Goods Solar also offers numerous financing products and $0-down payment plans to help homeowners switch to renewable solar energy.
