With power outages on the rise across the country, electric rates in Demarest are almost 30% higher compared to the national average.1 At the same time, home solar costs are hitting an all-time low.2 Choosing to go solar in New Jersey today is one of the best ways you can prepare for the future.
New Jersey is one of the top states for home solar installations in the U.S.3 By teaming up with Demarest solar companies like Sunrun, you’ll have the right tools and knowledge to control your home energy, reduce your carbon emissions and protect your home from outages for decades.
