To kick off the new year, we are thrilled to have our good friend Taylor Russel, Owner of Capital Energy☀️ – a one stop shop for all your solar needs! Taylor’s company is vertically integrated, which means they control every step of the process, ensuring a seamless and reliable experience for their customers. In our conversation, Taylor shares his story of why he started Capital Energy, and the importance of working with an ethical and transparent solar company, especially when it comes to solar financing.💰 He also talks about the importance of voting for SRP board members, as they play a crucial role in shaping the future of solar energy in your area!
We will dive into the topic of net energy⚡ and how it works for consumers and utility companies. Like real estate, we believe the best time to invest in solar was yesterday – as utility costs continue to increase year over year.😩 So, if you have ever considered solar NOW may be the time to get serious about it. And with the added benefit of locking in your energy rate for the long term, it’s a win-win situation for those who choose to go solar.
Taylor also shares with us how they determine the optimal number of panels for a customer’s specific needs and the placement of these panels on a roof.🏠 But what truly sets Capital Energy apart from other solar companies are the various add-ons and services they offer, such as new HVAC units, roofs, energy efficient windows, and more!🙌
