Pasadena In Focus
September - October 2009

The Sunny Side of Economic Downturn

This is the best buyers’ market ever for solar power! Price reductions, along with a 30 percent federal tax credit and aggressive rebates from PWP, are brightening the future for solar in Pasadena. Not long ago a typical two-kilowatt home installation cost about $9,000 after tax breaks and the PWP rebate. Today, that same system may cost as little as $6,090 net, or 59 percent less than the starting cost!

Attend a free PWP Solar Workshop Saturday, Oct. 10, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the Salvation Army Pasadena Tabernacle, 960 E. Walnut St. Experts will provide a comprehensive overview of incentives, the installation process and how to choose an installer. Reservations are required at www.cityofpasadena.net/solar.
