Solar Universe, Inc. announced the industry's first-ever Black Friday sale on power. Instead of participating in the traditional hype of Black Friday, Solar Universe decided to lighten the meaning and call the event "Bright Friday." The holiday deal includes a $1,000 gift card for new customers who visit BrightFridaySolar.com by Dec. 1, and sign-up with Solar Universe by Jan. 5.

"Black Friday has historically been about waking up before the sun rises and waiting in long lines hoping to save your family money over the holidays. We want to give homeowners the option to take advantage of solar savings, and with our Bright Friday event, give them an extra $1,000 as a way to help pay off their holiday shopping," said Joe Miller, executive vice president at Solar Universe. "Solar power lets homeowners save all year long and for many years to come with a cleaner choice of energy. And with our Bright Friday deal, it's a gift that starts giving back immediately."

The Bright Friday events signals that solar power has gone mainstream and is inspiring cost-conscious consumers to re-think their energy choices—particularly during one of the heaviest energy consumption seasons of the year. While holiday and bargain shoppers look for the hottest tech and energy-based gadgets for the loved ones on their list, the accessibility of solar power is giving consumers a choice to control their own electric bill. Today, solar is even more affordable, due to improved technology and reduced equipment costs as well as financial incentives. Consumers can get started with no upfront costs and then pay a low locked-in power rate for 20 years.
