PV solar panel prices have dropped to an affordable point. Last year, the average price of a Day One Solar installation was just under $4.5 per watt! Rest-assured, our bid will always reflect the best price and the highest quality. With the cost of electricity going up by 7% per year, there has never been a better time to go solar.

How it Works

Upon your request for information, we will schedule a personal visit to your site to measure your structure for sun-exposure. Then, we will design the ideal system for your home or business, and quote you a competitive bid. Once we have designed your system, our NABCEP Certified PV installers will get the job done expertly and efficiently.
