No hassle solar energy for your home?

It seems too good to be true, so I’m going to investigate further. But if it works the way it says, it is a no-brainer. Read the features and benefits statement below.

Update: In researching this issue, I have found a number of naysayers. Here’s a link to an example, from a competitor. http://www.energybulletin.net/26022.html

From my research, I have concluded that this is a business model that will succeed if the executive team can overcome a number of conventional obstacles. I HOPE they can succeed because we are currently funding hostile countries and polluting our air and water by using fossil fuels.

Link: Citizen REnU Service Overview

Citizen REnU program packages solar power for you in a simple and smart way. Plainly put, the Citizen Corporation pays for, installs, owns and operates the solar installation. You don’t have to worry about maintaining the equipment or any of the other concerns that come with making an investment into solar power. All you are required to do is pay for the electricity generated from these panels, at a fixed rate that is at or below your current electricity price, for up to twenty-five years. Just take a look at some of the benefits that our customers will receive:

No upfront investment, no need to become a financial expert to justify your investment.
No waiting for rebates.
No headaches with the city and the utility; let us handle the engineering, procurement, and construction.
Performance-based contract means you only pay for what is delivered. And since the solar power you generate will reduce the need for electricity from your power company, your net payment should always be equal to, or less than, what you’re paying now.
Hassle-free operating and maintenance; it’s handled by the experts.
Actual hedge against future utility price increases: you can “lock in” your rates for the electricity generated from the solar system at your home for a period of up to twenty-five years, far longer than the guaranteed rates offered by other electricity providers.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Citizen Corporation is presently limited in the areas that it can offer the REnU program. Our service territory is defined by the regions that have enacted net-metering legislation. That is because we want to make sure that our customers receive the full benefits of solar power without being penalized by their local utility.

As you can see below, even with the limitations, we have a sizeable service territory. It is likely that you are even within our territory and are eligible for the REnU program. However, in the event that you fall just outside of our territory at this time – because it is growing year after year, you can still participate in making clean energy a priority.

If you do not find yourself in our service territory, please take a look at our green energy program below. There you will find out how you can help make solar power a significant player in our energy mix.
