Reduce carbons - Save money - Create green jobs!

"Local solar installer, Solar States, installed rooftop solar on my house in center city Philadelphia just over a year ago.  In my first year, I saved $1,885 in energy bills. At this rate, I will pay off my investment of $11,000 (originally a $16,000 expense before my $5,000 tax deduction) in only 6 years. The sun is free.  Why not use it?" - Judy Wicks
