Larry became interested in solar after talking with a friend who was looking at going solar. At the time Larry’s electric bill was averaging between $600 and $1,000 per month. During his research into solar, he liked what he saw from Astrum Solar online. “I was able to get an idea about the costs without having to speak with a sales person,” said Larry.

Larry and his wife also attended a solar open house so they could check out the online performance monitor and see an Astrum Solar installation functioning as a whole system. “Astrum Solar impressed us with their corporate culture. We saw for ourselves that they were a good, reliable company,” said Larry.

Astrum Solar performed an energy audit after I signed my contract and discovered a serious insulation problem that we have since fixed.

When Larry did meet with an Astrum Solar consultant, the consultant looked at Larry’s overall energy situation. “The consultant was concerned because he thought our monthly electric bill was far higher than it should be for a home like ours. Astrum Solar performed an energy audit after I signed my contract and discovered a serious insulation problem that we have since fixed.”

“Astrum Solar was very good. They knew what they were doing. They were always on time and always did what they said they would do,” said Larry. “Right after we went solar, every morning I would go out and check the meter, then go to work, and at the end of the day when I came home, I would check again. By the end of the day the meter was lower than at the beginning of the day.” 

“Having solar is a motivator. We have become more energy aware. We just had the lowest electric bill we ever had ($200/month). About one-third of our electricity is now produced with solar and that is much more than we expected.”
