Learn How To Get Out in Front of the Energy Revolution at the Oxbow Nov. 4
PORT ST. LUCIE – Have you ever imagined how much money you could save if you did not have an electric bill? Have you dreamed of achieving energy independence, especially after a major storm hits? Investing in solar energy in the Sunshine State can make your dream come true. Join Doug Coward, executive director of the non-profit Solar and Energy Loan Fund (SELF), and Morgan Brawner of esaSolar Energy LLC, at the Oxbow Eco-Center on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 10:30 a.m. to learn more about solar power technologies, local clean energy financing programs and the new bulk-rate solar program in St. Lucie County called Sun$avers.
By changing to renewable energy sources like solar, individuals become part of a global effort to reduce the use of fossil fuels, a non-renewable energy source that negatively impacts air quality, water quality and human health. But alternative energy isn’t only good for the planet, it’s great for the economy too. Renewable energy growth in the United States now outpaces fossil fuels. In fact, more people are employed in solar power than in generating electricity through coal, oil and gas combined.
Right now is a great time to make the move to solar with the SunSavers program, developed by SELF in coordination with ESA. Through the SunSavers program, St. Lucie County businesses and homeowners can buy and/or finance solar photovoltaic panels at about 30-40% lower costs than the current average price in Florida.
“The SunSavers program provides the opportunity for St. Lucie County property owners to cost-effectively shift to solar energy while reducing overall electricity costs and fueling the local economy,” said Chris Dzadovsky, St. Lucie County Commission Chairman and former SELF Board President.
