The combination of solar panels, electric vehicles and battery storage is compelling for many of our customers, including Franklin, Tennessee homeowner, Zoltan Kovacs. He recently checked the first item off his list.

“Solar energy makes sense in a lot of ways,” Zoltan says. “First, it’s distributed generation, so we’re making electricity right where we use it,” he says.

His 8.7 kilowatt system includes 30 solar panels, 30 DC optimizers, and one SolarEdge inverter which allows for easy online monitoring (he can check his solar production on his phone every day!). We expect the system will save him about $1,000 each year, reducing his electric bills by about 50%.

“We invested in solar equipment to reduce our energy costs over the long term, and we believe it increases the value of our home,” he says.
