MODESTO, Calif. — Acro Energy, a leading solar installation firm, announced that it will offer 12 months of free solar to new customers through Aug. 31, 2012 as part of an expansion campaign in the Southern California market. Valid exclusively with monthly leases, the limited-time promotion allows qualified residents to sign up for a solar energy system installed by Acro Energy.

“Our 12-month free solar promotion is one of the largest rebate programs currently on the market,” said Eric Williams, chief revenue officer for Acro Energy. “With California Solar Initiative Residential Program rebates drying up this fall in the SDG&E territory, converting to solar energy this summer makes better financial sense than ever.”

“The cost of solar power has dropped significantly over the last four years, making solar power systems more affordable and accessible to a wider range of homeowners,” said Harry Fleming, CEO of Acro Energy. “Today solar power is nearly equal to the cost of traditional electricity, allowing more and more people to go solar and opening the door for new jobs and robust sales growth in California.”

Acro Energy said the lease option enables homeowners to pay little to nothing down, while immediately reducing their monthly electric bill. Homeowners can save thousands of dollars over the life of the lease as they avoid annual electricity rate increases from their local utility, said the company.
