Sunlight Solar Energy: Helping Educate Philadelphia

“Solar Energy is way too expensive, can’t work in cloudy places, unreliable, and ugly. Only people like Al Gore & millionaires can put it in their houses.”

Sorry guys, these statements are all wrong! Going solar is great for your home, pocket AND the environment. But where do you even start?

Sunlight Solar Energy, Inc. is a leading national installer of solar electric and solar hot water systems. Located in Philadelphia, OR, CT & MA, Sunlight has stepped up to the plate to dispel rumors of solar energy through an ongoing educational campaign.  The overall success of Sunlight Solar points to their reputation as a reliable source and easy approach of all things solar.  Paul Israel, President of Sunlight Solar, attributes the company mission to  “educate consumers and empower them to make informed purchasing decisions.”

Homeowners & businesses have plenty of factors to consider when going solar, just like any other major investment. Sunlight Energy provides you with a specifically designed system to suit your specific needs, lifestyle, budget and preference. Director of Outreach Mallory Froeder explains, “We can provide our customers with a larger span of options than ever before – brands, sizes, efficiencies, colors, prices – and as the technology advances, these options continue to broaden as well”.

Miss Froeder presents at the various seminars Sunlight Solar organizes throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She educates homeowners on what solar energy is, how it works, defines a solar-friendly property, applications available on the market, and financial incentives currently available. As our guest blogger Clay has mentioned, going solar has LOTS of tax incentives & financial benefits. In addition to their seminars, Sunlight Solar constantly educates the public through a blog, e-newsletter, Facebook, Twitter & YouTube.

With a no-pressure approach, Sunlight Solar helps consumers become informed and encourages asking questions of any size.  They want you to understand EXACTLY where your money is going and how the process works, while making it easy for you.  Mallory clarifies, “Solar is still considered very new and quite complex to the average consumer. My job is to take something technical and make it mainstream and simple. There are few things that bring me more pleasure than that “Aha!” expression I will often see on people’s faces when I’m explaining something in a way they can finally comprehend. Not everyone understands the value of a kilowatt hour, but most folks understand the value of a dollar, especially their own. I’m just the translator.”

You can experience Mallory’s Solar Seminar expertise in Northern Liberties on Wednesday, November 17th from 6-7:30 PM.  Even if you want to consider solar in the near (or distant) future, come enjoy some light snacks and refreshments as you discover more about solar!  As a recent participant Michelle Cotton explained, “I’ll admit I felt a bit self-conscious about asking questions… Mallory really did make it simple, but she also must have noticed some confusion on my face because she approached me afterward and offered to re-explain things I couldn’t grasp the first time. She made me feel very comfortable and I’ll always remember that.

It really is THAT easy.
