The Solar Opportunity—Small Scale Investment Options

Feb 25 2016 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

It is more profitable than ever to put a solar PV system on your home or business and sell excess power to the utility grid.  You can purchase or lease a system for your house.  If you are renting or have property without solar access, you still have options. You can invest in a system in your neighborhood via a solar investment co-op.
