Solar panel vendors have been soliciting solar system sales to Waunakee's residents. You have the right to ask to see their Village of Waunakee issued vendor permit. Waunakee Utilities does not partner with nor endorse any vendors. It has come to our attention that there is a current vendor aggressively approaching Waunakee residents, falsely inferring a partnership with Waunakee Utilities and a four percent (4%) expected annual increase in electric costs. We do work with all solar vendors on proper and safe interconnection to our distribution system but caution residents from accepting only one quote from a door-to-door sales representative.
As solar panel costs decrease, residential installations become more economical. Waunakee Utilities recommends acquiring multiple quotes and allowing our utility to assist in evaluating your proposal(s). As stated above, vendors may overstate the future electric cost increases. Currently, Waunakee Utilities does not have a need to increase rates. Waunakee Utilities is a strong proponent of renewable generation resources including solar generation. We invite our customers to utilize our solar resources on our website and/or contact our Energy Services Representative for proposal evaluation assistance.
