Galleries at Turney offers solar energy option

[Source: Salt River Project] -- The Galleries at Turney now offers a 4-kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) solar panel system: a feature that virtually eliminates electricity bills. Modus Development will provide grid-connected PV systems to take advantage of SRP EarthWise Solar Energy incentives. In addition, the new homebuyers can apply for state and federal tax credits. SRP EarthWise Solar Energy, a solar-incentive program that encourages SRP customers to invest in solar energy, paid for 40% of each homeowner’s system in the development.

Each individual system can significantly reduce the homeowner’s electric bill by generating an estimated 28,800 kilowatt hours of electricity on an annual basis. That equates to offsetting almost 30,000 pounds of CO2 emissions in the first year of operation. For more information, click here.
