The Basics

Energy Savings

Your Own “Green” Power Plant

Solar energy is easy to make and clean to use, and much cheaper than the electricity you buy from your utility company. When you install solar panels on your roof, you transform your home from just another house into a “green” power plant, generating clean efficient energy for your home year round. Whether you’re powering up your computer, running your dishwasher or brewing a pot of coffee, the energy comes straight from the sun — not from burning fossil fuels.

Save with Your Very First Electric Bill

Having solar panels can reduce your electric bills by a significant amount. Every watt-hour of electricity your panels produce is one less watt-hour you have to buy from your utility company. If 60% of your power is produced by your solar panels, your electric bill will be 60% lower because only 40% of your electricity has to come from the utility company.

You Can Pay Nothing to Start Saving

When you switch to solar power with Astrum Solar, you can pay nothing to start, instantly free yourself from unpredictable utility costs and watch your solar energy savings multiply over the lifetime of your system. We make going solar so easy and rewarding that you have nothing to lose — and a lifetime of carefree electricity savings to gain.

Freedom from Rising Electricity Costs

Declare your independence from unpredictable electricity prices! Lock in your own electricity rates for the lifetime of your home solar system. Electricity prices over the past decade have been very unpredictable, making it difficult for anyone to plan for that part of their household budget. Once we install your solar panels, you no longer have to worry about rising electricity prices for the portion of your electricity that comes from solar. As prices increase, you receive a bigger and bigger benefit from your switch to home solar power.

Going solar also reduces our reliance on overseas oil and gas and increases our energy independence as a country. As our own domestic sources of oil and gas dwindle over the coming years, it’s increasingly important to find alternative energy sources so that we can reduce our reliance on foreign fuel sources.
