The Gilfillen Residential Story

The Real Story: 

The 80,000 lights and decorations covering the Gilfillen house causes their monthly electricity bill to skyrocket during the holiday season. They went solar to eliminate their utility bill and chose Baker over four other companies.

They made the decision to go solar in 2014 because of the tens of thousands of dollars in electric bills that putting on a beloved Christmas display every year has cost. At their highest point, putting on the Christmas on Knob Hill light display they've become known for was costing them over $2,500 a month. But not anymore, thanks to solar. They'll experience their ROI in 4-5 years and they love spreading the good news that solar can save you big on your electric bills! 

Going solar has saved the Gilfillens thousands of dollars, which means they have lots of extra money to buy even more spectacular decorations!
