“When I talked to my Mom about having solar panels installed on her Massachusetts home, at first she was not into the idea.” Adna laughed. “She thinks it is still like 1970, where you have to DIY all this technology and maybe it works. I explained it’s very different now – the solar installation professionals come to the house, set everything up for you, and you never have to do anything to make it work. No stress, no headache.”
“The advantage of having a solar system professionally installed for your aging parent is you know they are never going to have to be without lights. They are never going to be without heat. Mom loves her shows – now she can just sit in comfort in her house and enjoy them without worrying about how bad the weather is outside!”

Mom was really happy to find out the opposite was true: having a good solar system in place can add significant value to the home and is very appreciated by homeowners who value energy independence.”
