Jupiter, FL (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
Solar energy has finally become affordable is a fact residents and building officials are finally realizing as of February 2009. Last week, Abundant Energy Inc. a 25 year old, locally owned and operated solar energy contractor installed the Town of Jupiter’s first electricity generating solar power system.
Brian and Emily O’Mahoney are not only the first home owners in their deed restricted community, The Shores in Jupiter, to install a solar electricity generating system for the world to see. They are the first home owners in their entire town!
Even with the rising costs of electricity, fluctuating gasoline prices, sinking property values, an uncertain economy and a new roofing project underway, Brian and Emily decided it was time to make the investment in their home they have been talking about for decades, go solar.
The solar investment for the O’Mahoney’s was made easy and affordable by the increased incentives that are available from the State of Florida, Federal Government and Local Property Taxing authority. In total, they are going to receive over $ 30,000 in incentives to help pay for their system. In addition to massive incentives, they will no longer be plagued by rate hikes from their utility provider FPL.
To make it easy on everyone, Abundant Energy Inc, collaborated with the O’Manoney’s roofing contractor, Legacy Roofing, a roofing contractor who not only does a great job, but also promotes sustainable business practices by recycling old roofing materials such as tiles and shingles with each job.
The completed project a combination of Solar Water Heating (SHW), Photovoltaic’s (PV) and a Solar Powered Pool Pump will be offsetting their average electricity cost by nearly 100%, sometimes more. Abundant Energy will also handle coordinating all of the paperwork with FPL the utility provider to set up agreements that allows the O’Mahoney’s the ability to sell excess power back to the utility grid under a program supported by FPL called net-metering.
“Solar Energy is clean, affordable and we make it simple,” said Justin Hoysradt, VP of Sales and Marketing for Abundant Energy, “The most common question we get once a system is installed is – Why doesn’t everyone do this?” A question, we are sure, Justin and the team at Abundant Energy try to figure out on a daily basis.
