Solar companies often promise “free” installation, but in reality, you have to make monthly payments for your system. So you’re only reducing your monthly energy bill by 25% or less. Instead, going solar through Solar Watts will save you 50-90%.

There’s no catch, no hidden costs, no credit reports, and no surprises – because Solar Watts is a non-profit community program that connects families with government subsidies that allow Solar Watts to provide solar at no cost to eligible homeowners. We pay for your solar system!

About Watts Rising
