Yesterday, I learned of another home in the northwest that had rooftop solar installed last summer, as part of the 2015 Solarize Northwest Philly pilot program organized by the Clean Air Council & Sustainable Business Network last year, with Exact Solar & Solar States as the two preferred contractors. which resulted in about 15 homes with solar on their rooftops.
If you’re one of these area residents, and would like to share your story, please contact Meenal at nwphlsolar at gmail.com.
This 10.66 kW system is on a gracious 3000+ square foot, 3 story home on Fowler Street in Roxborough, with almost 40 panels spanning the 4 roofs.
The family is very happy with the installation, especially the monthly bill of about $7 during the months when they don’t use the air conditioner.
The total cost was $32,000, which reduced their taxes the following April by about $9,600, thanks to the 30% Federal tax credit.
