Meet the EcoMen Solar Mythbusters

Deep in the depths of our solar company sits a team of superhero honesty addicts bent on setting straight the misbelieves and falsisms thrown at solar. Whether day or night, rain or shine, they are there to take commonly heard beliefs, analyze them and post out the factual answers.

You can count on them for nothing but the straight talk whether it comes to solar financing, module options, shading obstructions and anything else solar related. They’ve seen it all and heard it all.
