Local solar company donates home solar system to foster family in Lathrop, California
Updated: Mar 8, 2019
SunPower by The Solar Quote held their first annual giveaway contest for a free solar panel system during the month of October. On Nov. 18, they surprised the winner, Betty Cousins. Cousins and her husband are foster parents to three kids. They are also the legal guardians of three other kids in the home. Cousins works hard to provide for her family and is continuously giving back.
"Betty is an amazing woman who works hard to help others," said Robert Posten, CEO of SunPower by The Solar Quote. "She is deserving of this gift; we want her to feel appreciated for the work she does. When Betty wouldn't let us leave without a bag of her home-grown pomegranates, I knew we had chosen the right person. This is going to be an annual event for us. We love any opportunity to make people happy."
SunPower by The Solar Quote will be installing the system at no charge to the family. The system is 10.8-kilowatt and offsets more than 100% of the family's electric usage. This means that they can use more power in their home at no cost. The install will use 33 SunPower® solar panels. The install is scheduled to be finished before the New Year.
