Homeowners Mr. and Mrs. Thomas

"The last three months, I've saved at least $70 a month. This month, my bill was $45, and that was while I was running my air conditioning unit the majority of the time. The previous three months, my bill was zero dollars. GRID Alternatives has pleasant folks to work with. They are polite, helpful, and efficient. I would recommend anyone to participate in their program of energy conservation through solar energy."

Vicky McGill, GRID Mid-Atlantic client

"My bills in the summer would normally be between $70 to $80 a month. Now, they are normally down to $0 to $15 a month! It's nice to have that extra money. My experience getting solar with GRID was great. The same day I reached out, I was contacted, and things just took off from there. The next week, two GRID employees came out and saw my house to determine if I qualified, and the week after I found out I had qualified. Definitely check GRID Alternatives out, and see if your house is a good candidate for solar. The people at GRID are informative. They are not just "salespeople," and they will always give you the facts. They are very easy to work with."

"I save like $150 a month during the winter time. I am putting the money into a savings account. I would recommend GRID especially because they help people and because you would save money with solar panels on your house."
