This episode is also brought to you by Freedom Solar Power, the company I am using to go solar on my house. 

When I first started looking into solar, I thought it would be a clunky and expensive process. Freedom Solar walked me through the economics of it, where if you choose financing, you can potentially be up $50 a month, every month, starting the day you turn your system on.

With no downpayment required, solar not only ads value to your home and is great for the environment, but allows you to save money from day one.

Freedom Solar operates in Texas, Colorado, Virginia, and Florida, but there are plenty of other great options nationwide.
