On Feb. 2, volunteers from Harmon Solar installed a donated solar system on a Habitat for Humanity home that is under construction for the Sabbara family, a family of four headed by a single mother in north Phoenix. This will be the fourth Habitat home that Harmon Solar will have installed with a cost-saving, solar system in Central Arizona.
Harmon Solar rallied the support of vendors to donate a portion of the equipment for the photovoltaic system, and the company is covering the remainder of the parts, plus labor for the installation.
In addition to these current projects, Harmon Solar has committed to becoming Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona’s solar partner for future home builds. Aside from Harmon Solar, supplies for the solar arrays have been donated by Conergy Solar, ProSolar, and Specialty Roofing. This system is valued at approximately $9,500 with a total installation time of four to six hours.
The Sabbara’s home will receive a 2.7 kW solar array, containing 12 panels. The solar system could initially save the new homeowner up to $600 per year on energy costs.
However, the savings are anticipated to increase as energy costs are expected to rise annually.
