If you’ve ever wondered how solar panels would work on your roof or had questions regarding cost or special deals, the Montclair office of Environmental Affairs is hosting a free event to “answer all your questions, so residents can reduce their electricity bills while protecting the planet.” Solar Homes Montclair is set to take place on Thursday, Feb. 12 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Fire Headquarters’ Community Room located at 1 Pine Street.

According to the Montclair website, “[this event] will bring several solar companies together to provide clear presentations with information explaining financial options, leasing versus buying and respond to every question so residents can make responsible choices. New Jersey is a national leader in solar installations, and thousands of homeowners are already enjoying the benefits of clean, affordable electricity, with cutting-edge solar technology. The companies will explain simply what it takes to go solar – from permits to local incentives. Helping the environment doesn’t have to mean emptying your pockets; in fact a solar energy system can save you thousands of dollars. In many cases, residents can acquire solar panels with no upfront costs. Different people go solar for different reasons, but the outcome is the same: more power from the sun, lower electricity costs and the chance to make a positive environmental impact.”
