What I like most about the AVAVA concept is that renewable energy is built in from the start. Every day at Sunlight Electric we deal with retro-fits of existing buildings or, in the best case, consultation on new construction to work solar into the picture and budget and what AVAVA’s doing it an entirely new paradigm. With the right kind of financing, owner/developers can amortize the modest initial investment and pay a finance payment instead of a utility bill, and spend less each month in the process. Good for the planet, good for the community, and good for the bottom line.

BTW, depending on the technology used, we should be able to fit 3.75kW-5.0kW on the roof, which should generate 5,600 to 7,500 kWh in most climates.
