SOAR Energy, a solar company powered by Better Earth, announced its partnership with Gryphon Roofing and Remodeling, a leading residential and commercial roofing contractor servicing Arizona, one of the fastest-growing solar markets in America. SOAR has also named Gryphon Roofing its Preferred Roofing Partner within the state, operating in Phoenix, Peoria, Buckeye, Glendale, Scottsdale, Gilbert, and Chandler markets.
The move comes as utility rates continue to skyrocket across Arizona, with Arizona Public Service (APS) charging nearly 30 cents per unit of energy during summer’s peak season. According to a release from SOAR, residents can turn to renewable energy alternatives and reduce their energy bills by up to 40%. Both Gryphon Roofing and SOAR Energy state they aim to make rooftop solar energy easy and comfortable with "little to no consumption changes necessary by the homeowner."
“Leveraging both Gryphon Roofing and SOAR Energy’s unmatched rooftop capabilities, we’re looking forward to installing reliable solar systems for homeowners across major Arizona markets and getting them on track to saving money,” said Russel Hyman, CEO and president at Gryphon Roofing and Remodeling. “Our crews specialize in seamless installation and repair and deliver services with a core value of integrity and family, so through this partnership, homeowners can be confident in their solar systems.”
According to the Energy Information Administration, Arizona ranks among the top five states in total solar-powered generating capacity from utility and small-scale installations, with nearly 5,500 megawatts. Further, Arizona’s residential sector consumes more electricity than 75% of states and more per capita than 70% of states. Residents can receive a federal tax credit of up to 30% if their roof needs to be replaced while installing their system, as well as be reimbursed by APS for excess power that is produced and not used.
“Facing the wrath of high utility costs, homeowners in many of Arizona’s largest markets are choosing to make their homes more energy efficient through solar,” said Brian Decker, CEO of SOAR Energy. “By partnering with the Gryphon Roofing team, who is highly recognized across Arizona for servicing roofing needs since the early '90s and serving as the preferred roofer for some of the country’s largest hedge funds locally, residents will be able to confidently make the shift and take power back into their own hands without having to pay out of pocket for their solar system or oftentimes an unexpected new roof.”
The partnership will be in effect immediately. Homeowners interested in renewable energy can find more information here.
