Solar Panels Point South…

But Pricing Is Going North

At YES our goal is to inform and educate our customers about ways to reduce their electric bill and gain energy independence.

For months we have been hearing from vendors about the rising cost of products, labor, and fuel. (See below for documentation.)

Since March we have been actively absorbing these cost increases. These increases have hit the point where they can no longer be absorbed or mitigated by our suppliers.

Effective immediately all new proposals from YES will reflect a price increase to account for these cost increases.

If you are still considering your options for solar, pool heating, battery backups or attic fans, ACT NOW. Vendors have already told us to expect additional price increases in the fall.
