Hi, I’m Lisa E. Papp, Independent Solar 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.

Maybe solar power seems overly complicated or technical, too expensive, or too “alternative”. Actually, solar is very mainstream, having been in use since the 1970s, is affordable, and is a great investment. 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 I and our residential solar partners can help. We’ve done the research for you. We’ve chosen the best local solar installers. We have financing options, some of which are $0 down and start at 2.99% interest. 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 since 2016 than we have used. In addition to receiving a 30% Federal Tax Credit, Washington state offers solar incentives. We received over $2,000* from these WA state incentives in 2016 and 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.

The U.S. Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) when you add solar on your home is an incredible savings on the total cost of your system! The current ITC is 26% for homeowners who install solar power in 2020. On our $26,000 total system cost, we were able to claim $7,800 (at the previous 30% ITC amount) 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 tax credit out over five years of federal tax returns. Now is a great time to go solar to take advantage of the tax credit and save money on your solar power system and on your expensive heating and cooling costs.

I am excited to answer your questions and help you learn if solar is right for you. For residential solar, I currently work in U.S. states including California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Florida, and more. For a complete list of residential solar states, please ask.

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!
  • 26% 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 or PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) is better for you, we have those options available.

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

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, racking, and other equipment) have come down in price over the years. Marketing and customer acquisition costs have remained high. Some solar installers do their own marketing. Other installers prefer to have our help with marketing and assisting the customer through the process. That way they can do what they do best…install your solar power system. You will not pay more for your system by working with us.

  • We Support Local Solar Installers – We work with the best local solar installers in each state.

  • Financing Options – We have finance partners and options. We can help you find the best financing to fit your needs.

  • Warranties – Your solar panels have a warranty and your local solar installer offers a workmanship warranty. Typically solar panels last 25 to 30 years.

  • Lisa currently works with U.S. homeowners in California, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Florida, and more states.

  • Commercial Solar – I can help with solar for commercial buildings in most of the U.S. states we cover. Please contact me for more information on commercial solar.

I look forward to speaking with you soon about solar for your home
or commercial building.
