Summer of 2010 I heard Kirk talk about Solar Power at the Yelm Home Show. Kirk’s main thread through out his presentation was to educate us on how it works and why solar was a smart choice. Kirk was NEVER a sales man. He answered all questions clearly. His main reason for coming to the home show as to educate our community. The summer of 2011 we installed our solar panels. This summer 2012 our power bill was $0.00 from May to September we have not received Octs bill yet. Plus Puget Power sent us our first anual check for power we produced and sent back into the power grid.
