Progress report on solar with Sierra Club

By Shane Woolbright, Northern New Mexico Group

In a previous issue of this newsletter I wrote about the efforts and the hassles of putting solar panels on my home. Now, let’s look at the economics.

My 3,000-watt system cost $12,300. My federal tax rebate was $3,690, while my state rebate will be $1,230. I convinced a neighbor to go solar with Sungevity, which gives Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter $750 for each system and will give me $750 for finding a new customer for Sungevity. So giving credit to the funds going to Sierra Club, my system had a net cost of $5,230.
