A recent solar installation done by Current Electric in Pewaukee was highlighted in the Journal Sentinel on October 31st! Chris Lueth, an American Family Insurance agent located in downtown Pewaukee, is one of the first businesses in the area to go solar. He added the panels to his office building in order to reduce his carbon footprint and save on electricity costs.
On this particular solar installation, Current Electric installed 38 panels. These will produce more than 11.4 kilowatts of power – enough to generate electricity to power the entire building located on 112 Main St!
Here’s what Chris said about his decision to choose Current Electric: “Kudos to the contractor, Current Electric. I had bid out for proposals, and I liked how they have a solar division. They seemed very well-organized and they basically took care of the whole process.”

Soon after you have solar panels installed on the roof of your home or business, you’ll start to notice the benefits. If you’re wondering whether the investment is worth it, you’ll be happy to know that your new solar roof can pay you back, in full, in as little as five five to ten years! How many investments in your home can pay for themselves? With a new installation done by Current Electric, you’ll have:
- Reduced energy costs. Solar power keeps your money where it should be – in your wallet. After installation, you will literally be making your own electricity and lowering your electricity bills. Even if you partially offset your electric consumption, you’ll still see significant savings.
- Increased property value. Panels add instant property value to your home or business. Because they’re energy efficient and save on bills, it’s a major selling point. New research by the Department of Energy suggests that buyers were willing to pay a premium of $15,000 for a home with solar versus a similar home without!
- Investment. People have a wide range of ways to invest their money, but solar technology is one of the safest. Solar energy is predictable, and as electric rates rise, the investment becomes more and more beneficial.
Is Your Home Suitable for Solar?
Contrary to popular belief, a good amount of homes are suitable candidates for solar. Unless your home is completely surrounded by trees, there’s a good chance that a system can be installed. There are four major factors that come into play when deciding if your home is compatible: roof space, roof orientation, roof slope, and shading. If your home meets the requirements, you’re good to go!
