Hi, I’m Lisa E. Papp, CREW Independent Energy Advisor. I love everything about solar! I am truly passionate about helping as many people as possible experience the benefits of solar power.

Lisa E. Papp

First of all, I’m a homeowner with solar. My husband, Jim, and I added a solar energy system to our Washington state home in January 2016 and we couldn’t be happier with our cleaner energy choice and with the money we’re saving. That’s a photo of our actual “before and after solar” electricity bills above.

I know that solar may seem overly complicated or technical, too expensive, or too “alternative”. Plus, it can take a lot of time to do research, get bids from various solar installers, check references, learn about financing options, and many more details. Your time is valuable and the process could be simplified. That’s where CREW and our residential solar partner Geostellar can help. We’ve done the research for you. We’ve chosen the best local solar installers. We have many financing options, starting at $0 down and 2.99% interest. Our CREW/Geostellar partnership offers a price match guarantee so you know that you’ll get the best price. And we take the time to answer all your questions and make the process simple for you.

Even in the sometimes rainy and overcast Pacific Northwest, we generated more electricity from our home solar system in 2016 and 2017 than we used. In addition to receiving the 30% Federal Tax Credit, Washington state offers solar incentives. We received over $2,000* from these WA state incentives in 2016 and will receive over $3,500 in 2017. Washington state also has net metering through Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and other utility companies in the state which means that it is even more affordable to go solar. All states are different in the incentives they offer or don’t offer.
*Note: This is one example of WA State solar incentives, which currently max out at $5,000 per home or commercial building with solar per year. Your amount will vary.

The 30% Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) on homes or commercial buildings that add solar is an incredible benefit. On our $26,000 total system cost, we were able to claim $7,800 of that system cost on our federal tax return the year after our system was installed. If you don’t have a large annual tax liability, you are able to spread this 30% tax credit out over 5 years of federal tax returns.

I am excited to answer your questions and help you learn if solar is right for you. Please call me,

Many Benefits of Solar Include…

  • Solar systems are a valuable asset for you and your home. A 2015 study from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows that owning a solar system can add tens of thousands of dollars in value to your home. Appraisers found that home buyers consistently have been willing to pay more for homes with homeowner-owned solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems across various states, housing and PV markets, and home types.” http://newscenter.lbl.gov/2015/01/13/berkeley-lab-illuminates-price-premiums-u-s-solar-home-sales/.
  • Electricity rates increase every year. With a solar power system, you’ll have one low solar rate forever. Electricity costs for U.S. homeowners have increased almost 40% in the last decade alone!
  • 30% Federal Tax Credit (ITC) available on the full cost of your system. Important note: if you lease your solar system, you won’t receive the Federal Tax Credit as you don’t own the system. For most people, solar ownership makes more sense. However, if a lease, PPA (Power Purchase Agreement), or PACE financing is better for you, we have those options available.

The sun is the most plentiful source of energy available to us.

With $0 down ownership, upgrading your home to solar power is affordable and a smart financial decision.

Why You Should Choose Us

  • Simplicity – My goal is to make the solar process EASY for you!

  • Cost savings – Solar “hard” costs (panels, inverters, installation) have come down 85% over the years. Marketing and customer acquisition costs have not come down. We keep marketing costs low as CREW has low overhead and no fancy corporate office.

  • Experienced Partners – We partner with solar experts Geostellar and use their advanced online software platform to create a detailed solar proposal for you and your home. (We have a different, and equally fabulous top-rated partner for commercial solar.)

  • We Support Local Solar Installers – The CREW business model, with our residential and commercial solar partners, includes working with the best local solar installers in each state.

  • Financing Options…including $0 down solar loans! With Geostellar, we have many finance partners and options. We’ll help you find the best financing to fit your needs.

  • Price Match Guarantee – We will match ANY other solar bid you receive!

  • Warranties and Backup Warranties – Your solar panels have a warranty and your local solar installer offers a workmanship warranty. To add to these, Geostellar also warranties the performance of your solar power system and if the local installer ever goes out of business, Geostellar will continue to provide a full system warranty.

  • We work with U.S. homeowners in 48 states (not Alaska or Hawaii) and commercial building owners in 49 states (not Alaska).

  • CREW (Clean Renewable Energy Worldwide) is a Co-op founded by Robert Styler, a visionary professional with extensive experience in the solar industry.
