***LIVE FROM SILICON VALLEY***

Homeowners across the country can go green and save green when they make a simple choice – making the switch to solar energy. While traditional electricity costs continue to rise, the price of solar has fallen 67 percent over the last five years – resulting in more solar power systems coming online. In fact, a new solar project was installed every 84 seconds in 2016.

There certainly is an appetite for solar nationwide: According to Pew Research Center, two-thirds of Americans support alternative energy development over fossil fuels – up 5 percent from December 2014. And when homeowners purchase residential solar systems this year, they’ll be eligible for tax savings, too.

While solar has experienced great growth over the years – increasing by an average of 68 percent annually for the last decade – the concept is still new to many homeowners. On Thursday, October 12, SunPower’s solar energy expert, Whitney Torres, will discuss the many advantages of home solar power systems, while covering commonly researched topics like long-term savings, technology reliability and finding a trusted solar installer.
