AstroPower Inc. (Newark, DE) announced that it has introduced a new line of residential solar-electric power systems featuring solar power arrays that fully integrate into a home's roof. The new systems include faster installation time, reduced installation cost and enhanced aesthetics when compared with traditional rooftop-mounted solar power systems. AstroPower's new products will be offered initially to homebuilders as part of the company's SunChoice™ program.
The systems feature all necessary components for ease of installation and operation, including a power meter so homeowners can easily monitor system performance. SunChoice™ systems enable homeowners to generate clean, quiet electricity while spinning meters backward and driving utility bills toward zero.
