Solar Power without the Huge Investment

Solar power for your home is a very attractive idea, with one huge obstacle. It costs tens of thousands of dollars to purchase and install the panels on your roof.

The Citizenre Corporation has a program called Citizenre REnU which provides solar power to homeowners. The homeowner does not pay for the panels or installation. Citizenre owns and maintains the panels. The homeowner pays for the solar power at or below their current rate and enjoys a clearer conscience. You also have the benefit of locking-in your current rate for up to 25 years.

Update 12/17/06: There seems to be a lot of interest in the Citizenre program. For a detailed look at the program check out Tom Konrad’s blog. He has actually signed up for the program and has some great information for potential participants.
