Mr. Schmidt compared several solar contractors to determine that SolarCraft had the expertise to install a solar electric system for him.
In addition to electricity produced for his household, the solar panels generate surplus electricity to sell to PG&E for energy credits. The system includes 16 SunPower panels and a grid-tied inverter from SMA America.
Mr. Schmidt’s utility bill has been reduced by 84%, plus solar power protects him from future utility rate increases.
