Do you know someone with a “Golden Ticket”?

golden_ticket2_02According to Hawaiian Electric, there are nearly 15,000 homeowners in Hawaii who have an approved or pending Net Energy Metering (NEM) agreement but haven’t yet installed solar. Chances are one of your friends, family or neighbors are among these folks.

If you can help us find these Golden Ticket holders, it can greatly benefit both you and them. Here’s why:

For a limited time, SunPower by Eco Solar is offering $1000 in incentives to bring your friends on board for their solar energy project. The details:

  • $500 referral fee to you
  • $500 discount to your friend on their system

Time is running out to cash in those Golden Tickets!

sun_clock2_02Why is an NEM a Golden Ticket? Two main reasons, greater savings and increase in home value.

Although Hawaii became the first state in the nation to end net metering in October 2015, the rule change contained an incredible opportunity for homeowners who got in before the deadline.

Simply stated, the NEM becomes attached to your home, so you can continue to enjoy the benefits for as long as you stay there and even transfer the agreement to a new owner if you sell!

While the new Grid Supply program still offers huge savings via solar, NEM offers a more straightforward approach that saves greater dollars over the long haul.

Bottom line: if someone you know has a NEM, but hasn’t installed solar yet – don’t let them miss out on this opportunity. There are only a few months left before all of those golden tickets expire!

If you have questions regarding net metering or the new grid supply program please contact us, hit us up on Facebook or call us at 808 744-2274.

PUC ruling: What’s the future of solar for Hawaii?

hawaii_isles_sunWhat does the recent ruling from the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) mean for the future of solar energy in Hawaii? If you’ve already installed a system, the news is very good indeed. Even if you haven’t, the news is still good, but the clock is ticking!

For those who already have solar or who filed for Net Energy Metering (NEM) on or before October 12, Hawaiian Electric has “grandfathered” your system in, meaning that you will continue to enjoy the savings. There’s even a provision that allows you to transfer your NEM to a new owner should you decide to sell your home in the future.
So if you already went solar, now’s your chance to feel even smarter about locking in those savings, but what about your friends and family who haven’t had the chance to make the move?

meter_sunsetThere is still time left, but the clock is ticking…

Hawaiian Electric’s new “grid supply” program allows homeowners to now benefit from an energy buyback strategy. Like net metering, this plan will provide tens of thousands in lifetime savings for the average customer. The PUC however, has limited these installations to 25 megawatts in total, which experts predict will be exhausted within 8-12 months.

Bottom line for the undecided: time is running out!

Now more than ever, the quality of the system you install is crucial. SunPower panels are guaranteed to produce significantly more energy over time than all other panels. Investing in a high-efficiency SunPower system is the smartest choice you can make to increase your lifetime savings, regardless of the changing landscape of utility rules and incentives.

So if your friends and family are still waiting, now is the time to tell them about Eco Solar. One thing that hasn’t changed – we’re still paying you $500 for every friend you refer to us that joins the Eco Solar ohana!
