Residents are invited to join local nonprofit groups as they host “Solar Power Hours” in support of the City of Ann Arbor’s solar-discount program for residents of Ann Arbor and the rest of Washtenaw County.
The A2 Solar Club was formed to streamline the process of helping property owners within our community switch to solar energy and propel us toward meeting Ann Arbor’s ambitious climate action goals. The program is a partnership between the City of Ann Arbor, its Energy Commission, the Clean Energy Coalition, and Geostellar.
Not only does the City’s partnership with Geostellar mean that you’ll have a seasoned “solar guide” to walk you through every step of the process from assessing your property to hooking your panels into DTE’s grid, but you’ll also be getting an extended warranty and a low price guarantee.
At the event, you’ll learn about how to decide whether your home is a good candidate for solar; first steps for getting started with a solar project; how to decide whether to take out a loan or purchase your panels outright; what the payback period will be; and how the federal 30 percent tax credit works.
