Auston's garage behind his home was a great candidate for solar. His farm style home uses a lot of energy throughout the year and he wanted to go solar to start saving some money on his electric bill. Auston had a 13.920 kWh system installed on his garage. This system is made up of 48 Hanwha solar panels. Over the next 25 years, he should see about $53,000 in electric savings!
