Solar Energy World and SunPower are helping Maryland homeowners go green this St. Patrick's Day with the "Be Green and Save Green" Solar 101 Workshop.
Workshop to Provide Insight into Benefits of Solar Power
Local solar power systems design and installation company Solar Energy World is helping homeowners go green this St. Patrick's Day by making solar power more affordable for Maryland homeowners. With recent incentives from the state and federal government, homeowners can slash their energy bills by 50-100% in 2013. According to the SEIA (Solar Energy Industries Association), 2012 was a record year for the U.S. solar industry. Maryland in particular is showing phenomenal growth in solar adoption, now ranking 6th in the country for installed solar capacity. This growth can be attributed to Maryland State lawmakers' goal of generating 20% of the state's power from renewable sources, with at least 2% of that from solar energy by 2022.
This month, Solar Energy World is hosting a free workshop for homeowners at their Maryland headquarters in Elkridge. Homeowners will learn about solar power, how it can be incorporated in their homes, and what the costs and incentives are for going solar. RSVP is required for free admission.
WHO: Homeowners who are interested in cutting home energy costs and gaining energy independence.
