Advanced solar systems empower homeowners with the choice of clean, renewable energy.
Traditional methods of generating electricity are not only finite, but can have adverse effects on the environment. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Lennar, SunStreet Energy Group offers state-of-the-art solar systems in select communities, empowering homeowners with the power to choose, the power to save and the power to make a difference.
The Power to Choose
By choosing a home with a SunStreet Energy solar system, you now have two power sources for your home: clean electricity generated by the solar system on your roof, and electricity supplied by your local electricity utility.
The sun is an unlimited resource, unlike finite fossil fuels typically used in energy generation. Each kilowatt hour of energy produced from solar saves our country's precious resources, while evolving our nation's energy independence goals.
The Power to Save
The SunStreet Solar 20/20 plan™ provides you with a state-of-the-art solar system at no upfront cost, and an innovative guaranteed discount to retail electricity prices – offering solar power at a 20% discount to local utility rates, guaranteed for 20 years. Your SunStreet rate will be discounted by 20% off of the rate you would have been charged by your local electric utility if you did not have a solar system on your roof. As rates go up and down, your SunStreet discount will always be 20%. SunStreet monitors and maintains the solar system on your roof during the entire Solar 20/20 Plan at no additional charge to you.
The Power to Make a Difference
Solar energy is a clean, renewable source of electric energy. Doing the right thing has never been so easy and rewarding. Electricity generated by solar systems produces no emissions of air pollution. Solar power is a renewable energy source and contributes to the overall reduction in the carbon footprint for electric generation.
Environmentally damaging greenhouse gases (mostly CO2 or carbon dioxide) are produced when fossil fuels are burned. According to the U.S. Department of Energy- on average, a rooftop system that meets half of an average household’s electricity use would avoid conventional electrical-plant emissions of almost 7,000 pounds of CO2 in a single year. That is over 60 tons of CO2 avoidance over the life of a Solar 20/20 Plan!
Solar programs are currently offered in a select communities in California, Nevada, Colorado, Texas and coming soon to Delaware! To learn more, visit SunStreet Energy or search for solar communities in your area.
