“Despite the recent changes to the Government-backed Feed-in Tariff, a home solar system remains one of the best investments a homeowner can make today with a 6% annual return, allowing people to pay off the capital invested in the system in roughly 11 years, meanwhile generating free, clean energy.”

Installation of the panels will be offered through the company’s new partnership with Solarcentury, according to a press release.
