We're coming up on a time when many families see their electric bills spike, between running the air conditioner, the pool heater, etc. That sinking feeling you get when you open your Eversource bill is about to come back.

I'm pretty thankful to be saving green with my solar system from Isaksen Solar. In the 2 1/2 years since my solar system was installed, I've saved $7,500 on my Eversource bills and reduced fossil fuel emissions similar to the work of 350 trees.

Think about that — 350 trees. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen back into the air during the growing season. My family and our solar system is working a little harder — we reduce carbon in the air year-round. My app gives me updates on how much money and carbon emissions we've saved, and it's fun to talk with the kids about how we're helping the planet.

And unlike so many things we do to better our lives, the results with solar power are immediate. As soon as your system is running, you're reducing your carbon footprint. The savings come immediately, too, when you factor in the current tax rebates and financing incentives.

So, if you've been thinking about going solar and want to know the truth about it, reach out to my friends at Isaksen Solar to get a free quote and to see if your home is a good fit for solar power.
