Why Go Solar in Hollywood?
Solar is a smart investment for the planet and the pocketbook. When you install solar, you are replacing your monthly electric bill with a finance payment for the solar system. This allows you to protect yourself from future rate increases, build equity into a home improvement that will increase your home’s resale value, and ensure your energy is coming from a clean source.
Over time, you will save significant money and prevent many thousands of pounds of carbon dioxide from being emitted to the atmosphere. As a coastal city facing significant risk from climate change, this is an important step toward ensuring Hollywood remains livable for many generations to come.
