When Midlothian Lifestyle Magazine reached out to us for their April “Eco Issue” we were thrilled with the opportunity to showcase one of our projects as the cover. Our customer, Eric Kothe, was equally enthusiastic to share his success story as well. Having just equipped his home back in December with solar, he was enjoying no power bills through March.
“We haven’t seen a bill since we put in the system,” he said.
For Kothe, a business owner, husband and father of two, the decision to go solar fit his energy-conscious, self-sufficient mindset – he drives a hybrid vehicle and installed a generator to protect his family from outages. “I’ve always been conscientious about energy,” he said. “You realize the world’s evolving, and how do you sustain a lifestyle and be mindful of the planet, and of costs?” Solar was the answer for Kothe. His wooded 13-acre spread includes a tree-free area for his house and pool with unobstructed southern exposure. Purchasing the solar system in late 2019 netted Kothe a 30% federal tax credit, which he plans to apply to his home-improvement loan, as well as relief from monthly electric bills that ranged from $200 to $400 per month.
Eric also had this to say on Google: Sunlight Solar installed our 17kw system less than 30 days after I initially contacted them for a quote. The quote was fair, the process was thorough and no time was wasted waiting for paperwork, permits and other issues. The installation took one full day. The electricians and the panel installation crew were very nice and very professional. I would recommend Sunlight Solar to anyone seeking quotes, as we did. Honestly, it felt like they wanted the work and that’s who I want to hire every time.
