Good Faith Energy Completes First South Dallas Solar System Installation
As the adoption of solar energy continues to grow within the residential market, the benefits of owning a solar system are becoming more evident and appealing. With the potential of saving hundreds of dollars a month on electric bills, homeowners across the U.S. are finding solar systems to be a wise investment. Although the cost of solar has become more affordable over recent years, the bottom line price of a solar system is still out of reach for many Americans. This fact has been the driving force for Good Faith Energy’s plans to bring solar to underserved communities across North Texas.
About Good Faith Energy
Good Faith Energy (GFE) is a Dallas-based commercial and residential solar service provider. A main focus for the company is promoting renewable energy and solar education across North Texas, targeting underserved areas starting with the South Dallas and Fair Park districts.
South Dallas is a region which holds one of the most impoverished zip codes in North Texas. Good Faith Energy believes that educating the community on the benefits of solar and job potential within the industry could be a strong factor in helping to bring economic revitalization to the area.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
The First Solar System in South Dallas
The GFE team completed the first of what is hoped to be many more residential solar system installations in South Dallas. The 2.36kW system featured eight of Mission Solar Energy’s high-efficiency PERC 60 solar modules. According to the GFE team, they chose to select this module based on its’ exceptionally strong performance, durability, aesthetics, affordability and reliability.
“This project is a living example of the immense impact solar energy can have on a community. We would like to thank the South Dallas community, NTREG, our sponsor partners, and the Department of Energy for all their support in helping this grassroots effort spring to life,” said Mohammed Abdalla, Founder of Good Faith Energy.
What makes this project even more impressive is that the installation crew was a group of locally trained South Dallas graduates. Through this project they were able to gain experience that will further their careers in the solar industry and earn competitive compensation for the work performed.
“It is our desire to see an increase in solar projects such as this one. Educating the community to help them achieve their sustainability and clean energy goals is a cause we will always strive to support and strengthen. We commend the hard work and effort Good Faith Energy is putting forth in this project,” said Sam Martens, commercial operations director of Mission Solar Energy.
Bringing more solar to underserved communities
Good Faith Energy aims to install 200KW of solar capacity within underserved communities by the end of 2023. Partnerships with supporting entities and utilizing a locally trained workforce will continue to be the model for upcoming installations and community development.
