Heart of Illinois Group Sierra Club members, Beth and Ryan Johnson, of East Peoria, are thrilled with their new solar panels. The pollution free electricity the panels generate will help the world win the battle against climate crisis. They said that the thought that they are helping to preserve the environment with this installation is very satisfying. They are also looking forward to tracking the energy produced by their array in real time with an app on their phones. The installation was designed and installed by Ruyle Mechanical. Kiersten Sheets of Ruyle made the whole process from start to finish relatively stress free. The panels are American made, high efficiency, Solaria panels and were installed by union workers from Ruyle. As you can see in the picture their 5KW system is made up of 14 panels and should cover the electricity needs of the Johnson household. Because of incentives and rebates the Johnsons will have recovered all of their investment in less than 8 years. The solar panels are warrantied for 25 years and will probably last well beyond their warranty.
