Livermore CA (SPX) Aug 18, 2008
In the past eight weeks 29 homeowners in Livermore and Pleasanton have installed solar electric systems through industry leading solar solutions provider REC Solar. In June the company launched a special community program to encourage residents of the community to invest in renewable energy by offering deep discounts on solar electric systems.

In fact, demand for the REC Solar program has been so strong, with over 160 kW already sold, that REC Solar has decided to extend the program until September 15, 2008 in order to assist Livermore and Pleasanton homeowners who wish to take advantage of the soon-to-expire Federal Tax Credit.

According to Livermore residents Gloria and Bob Taylor, who will be installing a 22 kilowatt REC Solar electric system on their home and business, Retzlaff Winery, "Going solar just makes sense for our business and it feels good to do something positive for the environment."

"This program has been a tremendous partnership for REC Solar, Inc. and the communities of Pleasanton and Livermore," said Chris Masys, REC Solar's Bay Area Sales Manager.

"This unique opportunity provided strong financial incentives to residents making the choice to own their household energy from a top-quality, money-saving, environmentally-friendly solar installation. REC Solar is proud to continue our commitment to the area with many new additions to our already-large customer base in the two cities."

REC Solar is offering a discount of $600 per kilowatt to residents in Livermore and Pleasanton with the following zip codes - 94550, 94568, 94588, 94551, and 94556. Certain restrictions apply to the discount. The community solar program now runs through September 15, 2008.
