“I get to sell the electricity generated by my solar array as Renewable Energy Certificates.”

Name
Pilar Abaurrea

What motivated you to install solar?
My concern for the health of the planet.

How many panels do you have, and if you know, how much energy are you producing, percentage of your electric usage.
17 panels

What has been the biggest benefit so far? What are you excited about?
I get to sell the electricity generated by my solar array as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) which just about offsets the $13.81 monthly charge from Eversource.

What is a “Renewable Energy Certificate?”
A market-based mechanism designed to support renewable energy generation and clean energy goals. Learn more about RECs from Eversource.

What were the obstacles to installing solar and what did you do to overcome them?
Cost. The rebate and tax credit helped.

What advice do you have for people considering installing solar?
Do not put it off.

Anything else you want to share?
I also have a hot water pump and a heat pump – both fed by my solar array.  I love it!
