Solar Loan Program by SolarTown

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Ever since we created the SolarTown community, our customers have complained that the financial burden of going solar was simply too great for them to embark on the journey. Starting today, we are offering our customers some relief: a solar loan program with one year of no payments and no interest. If you are a DIYer, you now have this solar loan program as an option so that you have time to receive your economic incentives and you don’t have to go out and get a home loan or put the entire purchase on your credit card. If you are an installer who has in the past had to advance the cost of the equipment for your customers, you can now have your customer place an order for a solar energy system with SolarTown. You will of course still do the installation—but without having to come out of pocket for the solar energy equipment.

SolarTown and Friends Go to Great Falls

Monday, June 28th, 2010

There is nothing better to break up the summer heat of Washington, DC than a trip to Great Falls. SolarTown staff, interns and friends made the trek to Great Falls over the weekend. The Maryland side has the views for those who want to take a glimpse of the magnificent gorge and then return to their cars. From the Maryland side you can walk along the C&O canal, which was a great feat of transportation, but before it was completed the new technology, trains, had made the canal obsolete. But 150 years later, it makes for great scenery.
