    #6 Solar as an Investment w/ Jared, Micah, and guest Thea Gudonis

    "Solar's not a luxurious expense for the greenies; it's for the practical investor. Instead of just paying a monthly expense without any return, or any end in sight, you're switching that and diverting it to a monthly fixed investment that has an end, adds value to your property, invests in your local community and clean energy - it's one of the few examples in this world that's a Win-Win-Win for everyone and makes environmental, social, and economic success."
