When asked about his home’s solar energy, Jim beams and spills about his outstanding experience with solar: “[I have solar at] my home in Lake Norman, where I’ve lived for 12 years. I’ve been a solar person for about 5 years now. I’m enjoying it a lot.”
In terms of the dollars and sense of solar, he’s got a definitive argument for the prospective customer: “If I said to you, you can buy a bond today for X amount of dollars, that will pay you 4% this year… 5% next year, and 6 percent the next year, and 7 percent the year after that – I can sell you those bonds all day long. You have an investment, it’s virtually maintenance-free, and it keeps upping the yield as time goes by, because let’s face it, electric is getting more expensive as time goes on, it’s not going to get cheaper.” With that reasoning, he’s proud of his solar and a strong advocate for others to benefit from the technology as he has.
