It was an article in Smart Money magazine that made Uday decide that now is the time to go solar. He had long been curious about solar panels, but when he read an article in Smart Money about the financial benefits of going solar, he made his move.

“My main motivation in the beginning was financial – I wanted to lower my utility bills and take advantage of the tax breaks. I also saw solar as a good way to diversify. I view panels as a safe, reliable, fixed income investment with less risk than the stock market or real estate.”

When I decided to get solar panels, my reasons were mostly financial. But now that I have them, it's also psychological. The most rewarding part is that I'm generating energy from the sun!

Uday did extensive research on solar installers, and winnowed his search down to two companies: Astrum Solar and another, large solar installer. “Astrum Solar had everything I wanted – the right panels (black, not blue), cutting edge technology and personalized service. I was also really impressed with their customer testimonials.”

Having the latest technology was especially important to Uday. “Astrum Solar uses microinverters, which the other installer didn’t offer.  And I really liked Astrum’s online Performance Monitor, which shows you how much energy your system is producing, panel by panel, hour by hour. I think some other installers may offer that, but Astrum’s is the most sophisticated one out there.”

Service was important, too: “Astrum Solar made it hassle-free and totally turnkey. They were willing to design and create the perfect system for my needs.”

Uday has new perspective on going solar: “When I decided to get solar panels, my reasons were mostly financial. But now that I have them, it’s also psychological. The most rewarding part is that I’m generating energy from the sun!”
