Should I Put Solar PV (Photo Voltaics) on My Roof? (Tentative Program)
Today, installing solar power on roof tops of homes is becoming so commonplace that it is now built into home appraisal techniques, found in search criteria on resources like Zillow, and is a sensible alternative for home owners looking to reduce the cost of electricity and obtain a variety of tax breaks and credits. Come to this seminar and learn about how it works, if you can put it on your roof, what it costs, what the tax breaks are, what the payback is, what you can get back from the power company, and how it will affect the value of your home. Plus, hear real life examples from homeowners on the island that have had it installed, get advice from solar installers on MV and find out what island banks are willing to lend homeowners for these installations.
