"When I was looking to go solar I felt caught in the middle of various solar companies, all wanting me to buy, but with Dru’s help and expertise, I went ahead and chose a PV system feeling confident in my decision based on his ‘brass tacks’ real world knowledge. 

With Dru’s help, I feel I made a much more informed decision than I would have otherwise. I would highly recommend that anyone looking to go solar take the time to get Dru’s invaluable input as a Solar Coach.”

Our wonderful Prescott Solar Ambassadors Mark and JoDee Vale celebrated their new solar system installation in a big way! Heartiest Congratulations to the couple and a big thanks for organizing a house party to show off your new solar power!

JoDee and Mark Vale have both been incredible solar ambassadors, leading outreach initiatives in Prescott and spreading the message of energy independence.

More than 30 people attended the party — all eager to follow in JoDee and Mark’s footsteps. With the kind of enthusiasm and positive energy in their home, it can easily be expected to see at least seven solar systems come out of this one gathering.

Jeff Slaugh from Solar City came out to explain intertie systems and show a short video, followed by a Q&A session. Jeff ended the party by demonstrating how the solar system works, what all the components look like and how output can be monitored via computer or iphone. 

Neighbors and friends thoroughly enjoyed the solar party.
