More sunlight penetrates the earth’s surface in one hour than the world consumes in an entire year.
Now PetersenDean is making it easier to power homes with the sun by launching four simple and cost effective residential solar products under the Power Saver Series brand.
PetersenDean Roofing and Solar is one of the oldest solar power builders in the state. The award winning company has installed more than 1 million new roofs and more than 20,000 solar energy systems since installing their first solar system in 1985.
“I believe in global warming and that reducing our carbon footprint is vitally important,” says Jim Petersen, CEO and founder of PetersenDean Roofing and Solar. “We recognized early on that there would be a growing demand for alternative energy and decided to blend our traditional roofing business with the solar installation business.”
Solar power not only provides clean, renewable energy, but falling costs have made solar more affordable than ever. In fact, the average price of a solar panel has declined by 58 percent since 2011, according to the Solar Energy Industry Association.
The Power Saver Series enables consumers to purchase rooftop solar power for their homes for as little as $5,999 – or $4,999 with the purchase of a new roof – with no money down, 4 percent interest financing, and low, easy payments. The systems can be installed in one day allowing homeowners to begin reducing their electric bills immediately.
Before leasing a solar system, Jim suggests homeowners do the math. “Why would anyone lease a solar power system that cost five grand for 20 years and never own it?” he asks. In addition to offsetting rising energy costs, homeowners can receive $1,800 to $6,000 in tax credits depending on the package they choose.
Headquartered in Northern California with 15 regional offices in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Texas, PetersenDean employs more than 4,000 workers, has completed over $3 billion in projects, installed more than 1 million new roofs, and more than 20,000 solar energy systems since its founding.
