When I first started looking into solar, I thought it would be a clunky and expensive process. Going solar isn’t as hard as you think it is, and Freedom Solar Power is a turnkey solution focused on educating the consumer and making sure they have all the information they need to make sure going solar is right for them, both financially and as a way to help the planet.

With no downpayment required, solar not only ads value to your home and is great for the environment, and might even allow 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.
