At Ashlake, there’s always something new under the sun!

Not only do you get a maintenance-free home and an amazing, friendly community when you move to the Villas at Ashlake, but you also get nuggets of wisdom. Keep reading to learn! Alexandre-Edmond Becquerel, an important French physicist, explained how we can generate electricity from sunlight in 1839.  He's the father of modern solar energy, discovering the photovoltaic effect, the operating principle of the solar cell. And finally, 175 years and decades of experimentation later, we have technology that can efficiently harness the power of the sun!   Why does this matter? Because everything we do uses tons of electricity – and it costs a lot of money. Solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the U.S. has some of the richest solar resources in the world! Modern technology can harness solar energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing light, and heating water.   By using solar power, you can reduce your energy costs and your carbon footprint. And at the Villas of Ashlake, we’re helping you do just that – by installing a solar energy system!   What does solar power mean to you?
  • You'll start saving the very first day of your system’s operation. How high is your current electric bill? You can expect to save around $90 a month from your solar energy system at Ashlake!
 
  • You can claim a one-time tax credit equal to 30% of your system’s cost. For example, on a $15,000 solar energy system, you’d be entitled to $4,500 in tax credits. Cha-ching!
 
  • When you purchase your home, it's easy to finance your solar energy system through your mortgage.
 
  • Homes with a solar energy system provide more reliable power and have a better resale value in the Richmond market.
 
  • Your solar energy system will reduce your carbon footprint by lowering demand for electricity from coal or gas-fueled energy plants.
    If want to learn more about how the solar energy system at Ashlake will work, please call Tom Gancsos at 804.347.4253.
