Applications Must Be Submitted By April 1, 2013 Up To 20% Instant Volume Purchase Discounts on Residential or Commercial Solar Power Systems

Utah residents have a unique discount opportunity on home and commercial solar power systems which is expiring soon. Now through April 1, 2013 Progressive Power Solutions of Orem, Utah is taking applications from those interested in purchasing a new solar panel system at a significantly discounted rate.

Progressive Power is Utah’s largest and most experienced solar power installation company and is able to negotiate discounts of 10-20% off the current manufacturer rate on solar panels when purchasing in volume or bulk. According to Progressive Power Solutions President Norm Harrison, “we are combining all of our customers’ orders from now through the end of March into one large bulk order so we can take advantage of special manufacturers volume discounts which we will pass on directly to our customers.”

Harrison believes the savings will help make it easier for many families to take advantage of the enormous benefits solar power can provide in both financial savings and peace of mind.

The volume discount savings program when combined with other government issued rebates and tax credits, can save customers as much as 50% on the upfront cost of a new solar power system fully installed. Wendal Child of Fruit Heights, Utah said “our utility bill is down 70% from what we normally paid.” Child purchased a home system from Progressive Power Solutions in 2011 and has enjoyed the savings for nearly two years and is just one example of the monthly discount you can expect when installing a solar panel system on your home.

The cost of solar power systems have dropped sharply over the past 12 months making solar panels more affordable than ever before. Harrison went on to say, “For the first time ever, it now costs less to install a complete solar power system than it does to continue making payments to the power company”

Harrison cites reduced manufacturing costs due to increased sales volume and more competition in the marketplace as key reasons for the lower cost. However Harrison warned that prices were likely to increase as the cost of materials and manufacturing continue to rise. Harrison feels now is the best time to purchase solar panels and that is why they have organized this special volume discount program to help people interested in a solar power system get the best possible saving now before the prices go up.

When asked about the initial investment, Progressive Power Solutions customer Dr. Clyn Robinson of South Jordan, Utah stated “There is an upfront cost, but it’s not a cost that doesn’t make sense, it makes a whole lot of sense financially.”

Progressive Power Solutions offers a free solar evaluation for your home or commercial business and will provide a detailed quote outlining initial costs, expected savings, and financing options that may be available. Go to http://www.ppswest.com or call (801) 367-7282 for more details.

MONEY may be the BIGGEST reason to join the “US Solar Power Rooftop Revolution”!


Did you know, according to an article published on http://cleantechnica.com the average 20-year savings from going solar in the US is over $20,000?   Solar power companies have been screaming about the benefits of solar for years, and were starting to wonder if anyone was listening.  When people finally take the plunge into “going solar” it is usually they finally realize how significant the savings really can be.

The electric companies have us conditioned to pay them month after month after month.  We do it without much thought and don’t even take into consideration the profits that these near monopolies are generating and just how much of our hard earned money we are losing year after year by making those monthly payments.  The crazy part is that this adds up to tens of thousands of dollars in savings?

Last year, Progressive Power Solutions of Orem, Utah announced that for the first time it actually costs less to get a complete home solar system than it does to do nothing and keep making those monthly payments to the power company.  And it’s not getting any cheaper.  Rocky Mountain power announced their biggest rate hike increase ever, and warned that Utah consumers may see annual rate increases of 8-10% every year for the next decade.  That means your power bill is likely to DOUBLE every 10 years.

What if you could get “Investment Grade” solar panels installed on your home for about $1 per day?  Take a look at these facts and figures on making the switch to solar, when working with Progressive Power Solutions.

  • With current federal & state tax incentives, along with available rebates a solar system’s final cost can be:
    • Commercial Building – 10% of total installed price
    • Home – 55% of total installed price
    • Electricity bill can go to near ZERO from day one
    • System payoff in 8 years for @$1 a day more than current power bill
    • Emergency 24/7 power for peace of mind
    • Eliminates energy inflation and locks in your rates for the next 30 years
    • 25 year warranty on all components
    • Solar homes & commercial buildings increase in market value

In the end, it comes down to a pretty easy choice:  Get a solar power system installed on your home or business and reap the enormous financial rewards, or continue sending your hard earned money to the electric companies and losing out on $20,000 over the next two decades.

Did you know?

Did you know that there are Federal and State tax credits which can reduce the cost of solar power to your home or business by thousands of dollars?  Customers are seeing monthly savings of as much as 75% off their energy bills.  Don’t get caught paying increases to the power companies when there are far greater savings and benefits with solar energy.  Learn more at www.ppswest.com/info

Applications Must Be Submitted By January 28, 2013
To Qualify For Up To $5,000 On A Home Solar Power System

Rocky Mountain power is offering their 2013 Solar Incentive Program, which expires on January 28, 2013.  The rebates are the largest ever offered by Rocky Mountain Power, allowing for a maximum incentive of up to $5,000 towards the purchase of a residential solar power system.

There is a two-week window in which Rocky Mountain Power will accept applications.  Once the application period closes on the 28th, Rocky Mountain Power will then use a randomized lottery system to award the incentives to qualified applicants who properly submitted the information required.  This is where the experience of a leading solar power installation company like Progressive Power Solutions of Orem, Utah can help insure that you have the best opportunity to obtain a cash rebate towards the purchase of your solar power system.

Progressive Power Solutions, has helped many of their customers receive the Rocky Mountain power rebates in years past and is one of the most experienced solar installation companies in the state in helping home owners apply for this significant rebate.  Tanya Robinson is a Progressive Power Solutions customer who received a state issued rebate last year.  Robinson states “I was so grateful that someone who knew the ins and outs of (the program) chased it down and got us our rebate”

Solar is an alternative energy source that has been around for decades, but only in the past several months has solar truly become more cost effective to install than just continuing to make monthly payments to your power company.  Progressive Power President and C.E.O. Norm Harrison said there are many reasons for this.  “Higher sales volumes have driven production costs of solar panels down to an all time low.  This combined with rising power costs, tax incentives, and rebates such as the Rocky Mountain Power incentive program, has made it more affordable than ever to purchase a solar power system for your home”

The savings can be significant.  “Our utility bill is down 70% from what we normally paid” said Fruit Heights resident Wendal Child who purchased solar power for his home in 2011.  Progressive power also assisted Child in obtaining the Rocky Mountain Power incentive in 2011 and was a key reason Child moved forward on purchasing a solar power system for his home.

“A lot of it is about peace of mind more than anything else” said South Jordan resident Clyn Robinson.  Solar power will help maintain your homes power during an emergency or power outage and with a battery back-up system can allow you to maintain power for days and even weeks if needed.

“The reliability of power in my home was a big factor for me” added Tyler Bye of Lehi, Utah who purchased a solar system on his home just prior to Christmas.

Reliability and emergency preparedness are definitely reasons why Utah residents may want to take a serious look at the advantages of the Rocky Mountain Power incentive program this year but the bottom line is the savings solar can offer.  Thinking back on his experience of purchasing solar power, Child remembered “the best thing about this process was my monthly power bill.  In June of last year I opened the bill and just smiled.”

From Light to Electricity: What is Solar Power?

From Light to Electricity: What is Solar Power?

If you’re like many homeowners, you’ve probably heard about solar panels, or even seen them on a handful of houses in your community. You’re likely wondering what all the fuss is about, and if solar power delivers on its promises. What is solar power, and how does it work? Is it cost effective? Is it something you should be looking into for your home or business?

The answer to all of these questions depends on your specific situation, of course, but the basics of solar power are simple. Solar power is merely a process of taking the energy that the sun generates and harnessing that power into a form that can be used in homes and commercial buildings anywhere. This is done with the use of solar panels.

Solar panels are made up of smaller units called photovoltaic cells. Each cell is made up of layers of silicon – an electric semi-conductor – and different elements that create a positive and negative charge within the cell. Together, these cells generate enough of an electric field to be transferred through metal plates and wires into your home or office. Like most sources of electricity, solar power then requires a DC to AC converter, to move it from a battery-like state to something you can plug your appliances into.

Installing enough solar panels to replace a significant portion of other power sources such as water or coal energy can be expensive upfront. However, the process is getting more affordable daily. Thanks to subsidies from the government, installing panels is much less pricy than it used to be. The only fuel required to run solar panels is the sun, which is free for anyone to use. Solar panels also require minimal maintenance and cost almost nothing to operate. All of this means that it is likely that you will see a return on your investment within several years. Over the course of a lifetime, solar panels can actually save you money!

To find out if solar panels might be a good investment for you, you need to evaluate the cost savings over a substantial period of time. Progressive power can help you crunch the numbers, but here’s a place to start. In Utah, an average electrical customer will pay around $.12/kilowatt hour (kwh) for their power usage. A good-sized single family home can likely generate 10,000 kwhs in a year. Therefore, that family would save $1,200 on their power bill in that year. That savings could potentially pay for the cost of a single solar panel – before government subsidies are taken into account. The power estimate we used in this example requires about 20 panels to produce, so that family would have paid for their system in full in 20 years, which is less time than a standard 30-year mortgage! And remember, that is without the help of government subsidies and tax breaks. So the average customer will pay off their system in roughly half of that time. Some people may even realistically generate enough power to begin earning back their investment in as few as six years. It all depends on the size of your home, how much direct sunlight you receive, and the cost of power in your area.

There are fringe benefits beyond cost, as well. Solar power produces no waste, so it has little impact on the environment. Additionally, for the foreseeable future the sun is not likely to “run out.” So investing in solar power today can protect you from the inflation of fossil fuel prices and the possibility that other sources may become unreliable in the future.

No More Price Increases – Solar Panel Utah

Power rate increases are inevitable. In Utah, Rocky Mountain Power recently announced one of the biggest rate increases ever, and it is expected there will be a number of increases to follow over the next ten years, at least. Solar power allows you to lock in your power rates for a guaranteed 25 years (base kilowatts/hour cost) Progressive Power Solutions can help you become energy independent and eliminate the need to rent your energy from the power company at whatever cost they choose to charge you.

No More Black Outs

Enjoy a new standard of security! Maintaining power during a natural disaster, severe storm, or power outage is an essential part of a well-thought-out emergency preparedness plan. Add your own solar power plant, and any worries about keeping your family safe and warm are over. Maintain communications with loved ones by keeping your cell phones charged and available. Read More

Solar Energy Is A Great Alternative. See How!

Solar Power PPS WestIt probably wouldn’t surprise you to learn that solar energy is among the fastest growing forms of alternative energy out there. You’ve probably seen solar panels installed on many homes in your area. If you are considering turning to solar power for your energy, you may be surprised to learn that solar is one of the oldest forms of energy but just in the past year or two has it finally become affordable for most people. Solar has truly become more cost effective to install than just continuing to make monthly payments to your power company. Progressive Power Solutions President and C.E.O. Norm Harrison said there are many reasons for this. “Higher sales volumes have driven production costs of solar panels down to an all time low. This combined with rising power costs, tax incentives, and rebates such as the Rocky Mountain Power incentive program, have made it more affordable than ever to purchase a solar power system for your home” Although the initial cost of solar panels can be quite expensive, you need to think in terms of future savings. Once your initial investment is paid off, you will never have to be dependent on another energy company again. This is because you will get all the energy you need from the sun. The best news is that for about $1 per day above your current expenditures for electric power, you can finance a solar system for your home when you work through Progressive Power. The savings can be significant. “Our utility bill is down 70% from what we normally paid” said Fruit Heights resident Wendal Child who purchased solar power for his home in 2011. Progressive Power Solutions also assisted Child in obtaining the Rocky Mountain Power incentive which was a key reason Child moved forward on purchasing a solar power system for his home. Home systems are not the only way you can benefit from Solar Power. If you often travel with your electronic devices and mobile phones, you should consider investing in solar-powered chargers. These chargers include a small solar panel that can generate enough power to charge your cell phone or another electronic devices such as a laptop. There are even small solar chargers designed specifically for tablets. Progressive Power Solutions offers a no pressure, informative in home solar evaluation. You can ask our expert team all the questions you have about solar power and learn about options you have for your home and the expected savings you can achieve by adding solar panels to your home.
