SALT LAKE CITY, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Level Solar, formerly branded as Terawatt, today announced the launch of operations in Suffolk County, New York. Level Solar offers Long Island residents a compelling reason to switch to solar energy: immediate savings on their electricity bill.
"We are excited to help Long Island residents save money through solar energy," said Richard Keiser, CEO of Level Solar. "Solar energy not only costs less than what Long Island residents currently pay, it also has a large positive impact on the environment. Every solar panel we install saves the environment over 2 tons of carbon dioxide. Every homeowner we serve saves the environment over 40 tons of carbon dioxide."
Level Solar's business model is simple: Level Solar installs solar panels on a homeowner's roof for free, the solar panels generate electricity, and Level Solar sells this electricity to the homeowner. The cost of the solar electricity is less than the homeowner's current electricity rate, bringing the homeowner immediate savings. In addition, because solar electricity has no CO2 emissions, the homeowner immediately reduces his or her carbon footprint. Each solar installation saves the environment 40-60 tons of carbon dioxide over the lifetime of the installation.
Level Solar is able to extend this offer to Long Island residents by financing the solar panels, maintaining low cost operations, and through cooperation with the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA).
"LIPA's team and solar program are outstanding," said Stavros Timothy, Level Solar's Director of Long Island Operations. "We look forward to working with LIPA, Suffolk County officials and local permitting offices to bring savings to homeowners, and to help protect Long Island's air quality, beautiful landscape and shorelines."
