Powering a home with energy from the sun wasn’t on the Garcia’s radar until their daughter, Lesly, adopted the renewable energy source at her Long Island home. Lesly recommended her parents meet with someone at EmPower Solar, the company she and her husband chose.
“The representatives at EmPower Solar were helpful from the beginning,” said Mr. Garcia. “And the rebates from ConEd and the state made it an even better value.” The utility and tax incentives paid for more than half of their total system cost.
The Howard Beach family went solar at their 95th Street home in 2010 and said they would “definitely” recommend solar power to others.
“We’ve been saving money ever since,” said Mr. Garcia. “We haven’t paid for a kilowatt since we signed up.”
“ConEd is raising their rates again,” added Mrs. Garcia, “and it will never affect us again. Thank goodness!”
EmPower Solar is providing a free solar seminar to the Howard Beach community on March 5, at the Old Mill Yacht Club. To sign up or for more information email Christina at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (516) 837-3459.
