Get to know Joe Utasi of Cinci Home Solar. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Joe UtasiI am going to familiarize attendees with all the information they need to be able to design, purchase and install photovoltaic solar panels on their homes for $3 per watt (or less). I will touch on everything from design considerations, vendors, permitting and the National Electric Code to the difference in various types of systems and the good/bad points of each.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

Simply the fact that solar IS affordable, despite the need for a significant up front investment. With a 5 year payback and a 30 year lifetime, this leads to a 25 year stream of profitable return on investment – which is a far cry from the markets and bonds or CDs at the present time.

Tell us about your background with your particular topic.
