"Kim: Hi, my name is Kim Salabsky
Ed: And I am Ed Salabsky.
Kim: Two years ago, we decided to go with solar panels. We shopped around and had the opportunity to go to the york county home business show. We talked to several companies, one of which was Pinnacle to get their ideas as to how we could benefit from solar panels.
Ed: Prior to going to that show, we did a little bit of research, we even looked at other sources of electric production such as windows or whatever. But we went to that show with that idea and we had narrowed it down that we were gonna look for a solar system for the house.
Kim: Pinnacle Exteriors came out and told us what type of panels we needed, how many we would need and we decided to go with them!
Ed: We're very happy and we've had it for two years now. We're very pleased with the result. Basically, we had no electric cost for the utility anymore. We're still connected to the grid and we don't have a choice to that matter and they do charge us a minimum fee for the priviledge to being connected to the grid but other than that, we haven't paid a cent for the actual electric for the power company. The solar power have provided all of our electric needs for the plus two years.
Kim: In the winter time, we were paying 3 or 4 hundred dollars a month, we were on oil. That stressed got cut down to as low as thirty dollars a month just to stay on the grid. Now we have that extra money to do what we want. I like that as I am into craft, so I have used some of that money to buy stuff and my husband is into hunting so he has the extra fund to pursue his hobbies. I would highly recommend Pinnacle to everyone. Like I said, we shopped around, we didn't take this slightly. We didn't just go with the first one we spoke with. We spoke to about 4 companies.
Ed: I would caution anybody that's considering solar to do what we did. But I would also say to do some research ahead of time because there are different type of panels, different installation methods. So it is not necenssarily that you should go with the lowest cost, you need to know what you're getting a price for, what type of solar panels and the history of the company; how good they do and that type of things...So cheap and the solar business is not always the best!"
