Thanks to Isaksen Solar, I received my first $0 electricity bill


This week was an exciting milestone – after recently having Fall River-based Isaksen Solar install solar panels on my house, I received my first $0 electric bill. It’s the same feeling I had when I finally paid off my first car.

Additionally, last week I was approved for the Massachusetts SMART Solar Incentive Program, which now puts $45 a month into my bank account for the next 10 years – $540 a year or $5,400 over the next 10 years (120 total payments.)

Getting a $0 bill or even having a $45 payment sent to me each month aren’t the things I’m most excited about – now having the electric company pay me was always my top incentive for installing solar panels. With a solar panel installation, your system can generate a negative balance onto your electricity bill, effectively building up a monthly credit on any solar-generated electricity you don’t use. My electric company buys any excess solar generate electricity I don’t consume and tallies a negative credit that you can eventually cash out.

Finally, my home is now carbon positive – already saving 1,834 lbs of CO2 emissions in the first two months which is the equivalent of planting 13 trees. The system I purchased is expected to equate to planting 85 trees a year, or 2,000 trees over the 25-30 year system life. For those concerned about Global Warming/Climate Change, installing solar panels goes a long way in significantly reducing your carbon footprint. With a smartphone app, you get to not only see how much power you generate each day, but you also get to see how much carbon you are reducing.
