The vision is to lead a solar energy revolution where we shift our dependence from foreign fossil fuels to renewable resources.
Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Sullivan Solar Power, a leading Southern California renewable energy company, announced Friday that its popular Yorba Linda Solar Program has resulted in the largest collective deployment of residential solar in the city’s history. The innovative incentive program closed April 26, 2013 at 5p.m. and will generate enough power to eliminate approximately 442,733 pounds of polluting carbon emissions per year.
As a result of the Yorba Linda Solar Program, 32 property owners in the city will be declaring energy independence. Across the 180,957 watts of solar power to be installed from the initiative, Sullivan Solar Power is paying community participants more than $65,000 collectively in cash payments.
Yorba Linda homeowner Kelly Mathis had average electric bills of $150 per month and decided to go solar to save money and to be less dependent on the utility. The Mathis residence signed up for the program to insulate their energy costs from Southern California Edison’s increasing rate hikes.
“I decided to go solar because of the increasing cost of electricity, and I didn’t think that trend would reverse in the future,” said Kelly Mathis, whose solar power installation started Monday.
The average homeowner who signed up to participate in the program had an average electric bill of $234 per month, and will now have a new monthly solar payment of $182 for the same amount of electricity but produced from sunlight. In addition to a lower monthly payment, homeowners are also able to receive a federal tax credit to the tune of $7,000.
As part of the company’s larger vision for solar expansion in Orange County, a new program exclusive to residents in Mission Viejo, Calif. launched. The new program will allow up to 100 participants to go solar for no upfront cost with guaranteed cash-back incentives. Available through June 3, 2013, the Mission Viejo Solar Program includes three incentive milestones, and early adopters will receive the largest incentives.
“Our solar programs are designed in a manner that financially encourage the entire community to go solar,” said Dustin Urquhart, director of Orange County operations at Sullivan Solar Power, “The vision is to lead a solar energy revolution where we shift our dependence from foreign fossil fuels to renewable resources.”
Sullivan Solar Power will host a free solar luncheon on Saturday, May 4 at 11 a.m. for the public to learn how to participate in the Mission Viejo Solar Program. During the one-hour presentation held in the Mission Viejo City Hall at 200 Civic Center, local property owners will learn about solar technology, rebates and incentives and case studies.
