The Andersons wanted to do something to reduce their carbon footprint and reduce their electric bill, and they decided that solar was their solution. “When we first looked into solar panels a few years ago, it was too expensive,” said Mary. “So we decided to wait on the panels and do geothermal first. We knew we wanted solar panels. It was a matter of timing.”

A few months ago, a neighbor put them in contact with a friend in the solar business who told them about the new government and utility incentives and rebates for residential solar. For Mary and David, that was their cue. “It was a no-brainer,” Mary said. “With the incentives and rebates, the cost of the system is next to nothing. We couldn’t afford not to do it.”

After we met with Astrum Solar, we decided, "This is the company we want to deal with." They were very professional and friendly, and very efficient. They started and finished the work exactly when they said they would.

“The first installer who came to our home eyeballed our roof and took a rough guess about the number of solar panels our roof could accommodate,” said Mary. “The guys from Astrum Solar were more professional. They knew exactly what they were doing. They had instruments and took precise measurements. They told us they could fit 45 panels on our roof (and that’s what they did). Astrum Solar also offered microinverters, which the other company didn’t have. We wanted microinverters because they’re more efficient and they allow you to see how each panel of your system is performing.”

“After we met with Astrum Solar, we decided, ‘This is the company we want to deal with’”, said Mary. “They were very professional and friendly, and very efficient. They started and finished the work exactly when they said they would. They were very responsive – they dealt with any issue we had, returned emails very promptly, even on nights and weekends.”

“I really like having solar panels,” said Mary.” It’s very exciting. You feel like you’re doing the right thing, and saving money at the same time.”
