The Catalyst for Change: Rising Electricity Bills

Swanson's decision to go solar was largely driven by soaring electricity bills, which reached over $600 in some months. With a pool and air conditioning to maintain, Swanson was concerned about the impact of the recent wave of rate increases on their household budget.
