COLCHESTER, Conn., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DCS Energy LLC., one of the top 100 solar industry firms operating in the United States according to Solar Power World magazine, and located in Colchester, CT, is pleased to announce its "Buy A Panel Program." The program allows individuals the opportunity to fund a solar energy project by purchasing a solar electric panel. The actual solar PV panel will then be used in a residential or commercial solar project. The cost is $800 and includes installation and the power equipment accessories for the complete system, including a 15-year warranty. The electric production of the panel will create a 3-4% annual average return payment for the panel purchaser over a 15-year period.

Usually the only investors in the solar industry and its many projects are large venture and equity funds. What we have provided is an opportunity for the general public to support renewable energy initiatives and reap the financial rewards, while providing more avenues for energy independence and concentrating on the environmental benefits," said DCS Energy President Craig Bradway. "DCS Energy has been at the forefront of program development that addresses the needs of its solar clients, and now we're concentrating on spreading our mission to all U.S. citizens, and involving them in our efforts. We use the highest quality, USA-produced solar equipment, so it is a win-win for our clients, the equipment manufacturers, our state, our country and now, participating individuals," Bradway stated. "The program will allow each individual to be able to go online at any time and monitor how their solar project panels are producing energy and saving money and precious resources." Citizens can purchase panels for residential or commercial solar projects. DCS Energy is starting the "Buy A Panel Program" in Connecticut and will later expand to other states. Currently, the next state on the list is Florida, as the program slowly spreads nationally. Bradway said, "There are literally millions of people that support renewable energy in our country but may not have been able to afford a home solar system or one for their business. Now they can participate, and help the country become energy independent, while providing numerous benefits for our environment." Any USA individual at least 18 years of age with a social security number can participate. The DCS Energy clients that receive the panels will reduce their electric costs by 40-50%. "This truly is a win-win situation," Bradway stated. "We have received tremendous interest in this program and we hope it picks up steam and spreads throughout the country."
