Why Massachusetts Utility Bills Are Sky High Right Now

Why Massachusetts Utility Bills Are Sky High Right Now Courtesy | Fun107 Does it seem like your energy bills have shot up in 2020? No, it is not your imagination. According to an article this morning on MassLive.com, Massachusetts spends more on utility bills than almost every other state in the United States of America. There is only one exception, Connecticut. How incredible is that? Hard to believe that we spend more on utilities than even California or New York, where there are millions more people and fewer resources for [...]

Nearly Two Years After Going Solar, Here’s How It’s Working Out

Nearly Two Years After Going Solar, Here’s How It’s Working Out Courtesy | Fun107 I had researched the process of going solar for years before I finally started calling around to get some quotes. We met with three different solar companies before finally settling on using Isaksen Solar in Fall River. We decided to use Isaksen Solar for a few different reasons. I'd say the biggest reason was that we just seemed to click with the people. I like to do business in a certain way, and I could just [...]

Isaksen Solar Is Giving Away a Free Solar System to One Lucky SouthCoast Family

Isaksen Solar Is Giving Away a Free Solar System to One Lucky SouthCoast Family Courtesy | Fun107 It's hard to believe, but my house was once powered the "old fashioned way." Month after month, Eversource would send me power bills that would take me out at the knees. I remember bracing myself every time I'd open up the electric bill, especially in the summertime when our pool and air conditioning would drive the cost sky-high. My bills were high enough that when I first heard about what solar energy could [...]

The Truth About Leasing Solar Before You Sign

The Truth About Leasing Solar Before You Sign Courtesy | Fun107 I've been passionate about sharing my experiences with solar power since I had the panels installed on my family's home last year. My power bills were cut to zero this summer and I got a great tax credit that I put toward my loans to purchase and install the solar system. I've gotten a lot of questions from listeners who wonder if solar might be right for them, and I wanted to make sure they had all the details [...]

Time’s Almost Up to Get the Solar Tax Credit

Time’s Almost Up to Get the Solar Tax Credit Courtesy | Fun107 Did you know that 2019 is your last chance to get the highest Federal Solar Tax Credit allowed? I’m glad I purchased my solar through Isaksen Solar when I did — I was able to get roughly a $22,000 tax credit for my system. Homeowners and commercial property owners do not have much time left to go solar AND be able to deduct 30 percent off of the cost of their solar system. However, starting in 2020, the [...]

Michael Rock Can’t Believe Solar Is Actually Making Him Money

Michael Rock Can’t Believe Solar Is Actually Making Him Money Courtesy | Fun107 What a difference a year makes! As some of you know, back in November, my family decided to power our house using solar energy from Isaksen Solar. Almost immediately, we began seeing results as we starting manufacturing energy. Granted, we launched the project during some of the shortest days of the entire year, so our results were small, yet significant with all things considered. We were really looking forward to those long, sun-filled summer days where we'd [...]

Michael Rock Learned the Truth About Going Solar

Michael Rock Learned the Truth About Going Solar Courtesy | Fun107 After THINKING about solar for years, I finally decided to get serious and start doing some research about it last summer. We checked out a few companies and decided to pull the trigger with Isaksen Solar in November. We chose Isaksen because, first and foremost, they are a local company. But they also took the time to really explain to us exactly how the whole process would work, from start to finish, and there was no "hard sell" to [...]
