ROSEVILLE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/22/14 -- Solar3D, Inc. (OTCQB: SLTD), a leading solar power company and the developer of a proprietary high efficiency solar cell, today announced that solar sytems sales by SUNworks' newly launched residential division through the first four months of 2014 are approaching $1 million per month and that homeowners report an average a savings of 80% off their electric bills. Residential solar systems may account for as much as 50% of the company's revenues in 2014.
"Growth of residential solar systems sales in 2014 has been exceptional as more environmentally and economically conscious homeowners turn to SUNworks for their solar installations," said Brent Baker, SUNworks V.P. of Sales. "In comparison to many other solar systems suppliers, we are not a one-size-fits-all type of solar company. That approach allows us to better understand each homeowner's unique challenge and offer a solution that fits that family's budget and goal. We believe that is best way to deliver true value to our customers."
By offering a SUNworks custom solar systems through purchase and financing, SUNworks facilitates ownership of systems by the homeowner, which results in greater monthly savings. In addition, the homeowner also receives solar benefits, including the 30% federal tax credit. Actual system ownership delivers a considerably better return on investment than leasing.
"We have built our company on the principle of providing our customers with the maximum potential for savings, while striving to achieve 100% satisfaction," said Abe Emard CEO of SUNworks.
One Yuba City homeowner said, "It seems like businesses today forget that people are what business is all about. That's not true for SUNworks...they are a great example of what a business can be. SUNworks promptly prepared a solar quote for our project and every step was completed with professionalism."
Solar3D continues to pursue the strategy of seeking additional acquisitions to join its SUNworks division, as well as the development of the Solar3D cell. "Our future looks brighter than ever," said Jim Nelson, CEO of Solar3D. "Our ultimate mission is to provide affordable and efficient solar power to the world. We would like to set the standard for the industry in meeting this goal."
