Once you have Smith Solar, your electricity bill goes down to about $0 per month ($15 in fees and charges but $0 charges for electricity).

In addition, you’re protected from the rising costs of electricity.
Property Value Increase
When you install solar at your home: increase our property value (each $1 in energy bill savings adds $20 to your home’s total value); receive a higher asking price; and help your home sell 20% faster as properties without solar installations.
