Is this the beginning of the end for Roof Top solar, are utility companies in a take over mode for profit from solar energy, is the move to clean energy being put on hold due to greed?  What do you want to see across our state?  Fields of solar panels and wind turbines where necessary wildlands used to be or existing and new construction rooftops supporting clean energy panels?

The environmental group Greenpeace said Duke Energy is greedy.

Eyewitness News Reporter Stephanie Coueignoux was outside Duke Energy's headquarters and spoke to both sides.

Greenpeace is upset Duke Energy plans to start paying its solar customers 5 to 7 cents a kilowatt of unused energy.

Duke currently pays them 10 to 11 cents per kilowatt and the change could happen by the end of this year.

I'm kinda picky when it comes to how the system looks. I didn`t want wires in my garage. Wayne and his crew put the conduit in the attic and I waw very pleased. The installation could not look any better!! I am super satisfied with the system, and Solorworks. With the tax credits, I will have my solar hot water heater paid for in less than 2 years and I am no longer dependent on propane and the ever increasing prices.

We would most definitely hire this contractor again. We can also recommend him as the most reliable and most professional contractor we have ever dealt with in the 10 years we have lived in Sedona. He and his crew is outstanding.

Again, I can HIGHLY recommend this contractor!

Solarworks and owner Wayne Espeland, Matt and the whole crew are the best. Very professional and a great job done on time and within budget.

We met SolarWorks at a county home show along with ten or more other companies. We interviewed all the companies. We changed the size of the system we were considering (larger). SolarWorks had one sales rep (Matt) who consistently worked with us, pleasantly and honestly. The workers were neat, clean and kept our home site that way too. The building inspector said he hadn`t seen a job done with the thoroughness he observed.
