Nature's Nectar LLC has gone solar

We have been concerned for a long time about the environment.
Global warming, the huge die off of insects and mammals from the planet. This is our part to help make the world a better place. We set up a solar system that should cover most of our electric consumption.
 The system is a 16.5 kilo watt system. This means the system can generate a peak performance of 16.5 kw per hour in a full midday sun. Solar systems start generating electricity when sunlight hits the panels. The wattage may be low in the morning, then peak midday, and moving lower as the sun goes down in the afternoon.
 Our solar system is grid tied. This means whatever solar that we are not using, the power goes back to the grid and we will get a credit from Xcel energy on our bill. So far after a month of being turned on, we have generated over 1200 kw of power. Not bad for the short days and a cloudy October.
 If you are thinking of a solar system, now is the time to consider it. Right now there is a 30% federal tax credit available for systems installed through 2019. In my case, Xcel energy also pays me $1300.00 per year for 10 years for the renewable energy credits. These two payments will cover half the cost of my system. Plus my electrical bill will be pretty much non existent.
 If you are interested in something like this, or want to see the system, you are welcome to stop by or call me for more information.
This is the company that did the install:
