Residents of Colorado and California now have more affordable access to solar energy as a result of buying and financing options that the companySolar has made available to homeowners. This affordability potentially increases the number of green jobs available to produce in-demand solar energy.
Under the new Real Goods Solar PowerSavings Plan, U.S. homeowners can elect to purchase solar energy systems for no money down, and they also pay a monthly energy bill that is lower than their current electricity bills. These homeowners also can choose to own their solar energy systems after six years through Real Goods Solar.
“With lower utility bills and zero money down, going solar is a no brainer,” said John Schaeffer, founder residential president of Real Goods Solar.
Solar Energy Continues to Rise in the United States
The price of solar power systems is a chief reason more American homeowners do not pursue this alternative energy technology. In fact, solar energy constitutes less than 1 percent of total energy generated in the United States even though its use does continue to increase, reports the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
The goal of the Real Goods Solar PowerSavings Plan is to help America become less dependent on foreign oil as fossil fuel prices continue to increase. This Real Goods Solar energy plan also improves the opportunity for the number of green jobs to rise.
“It is more affordable than ever for homeowners to go green with solar power,” Schaeffer said. “By having options that allow residential customers to live a more sustainable lifestyle with solar power with zero cash outlay, we are eliminating cost as a hurdle for homeowners looking to reduce their carbon footprint and their dependence on fossil fuels.”
