OTO Events October 20-26
The Orange Solar Project Ends November 5 at 11:59pm. The citywide cash-back incentives end November 5th at midnight, so there are just a few weeks left to take advantage of this special offer when you go solar. The Orange Solar Program allows eligible participants to go solar for no upfront cost and receive not only cash-back awards but also state and federal incentives. According to Sullivan Solar Power, most participants are installing a solar power system with around 6,000 watts of solar capacity, and this saves them anywhere from $165 to $226 per month on average. Why not consider reducing your carbon footprint and lowering your energy bill in the process? For more info click HERE or call 1-800-SULLIVAN.
