American Solar Direct Has a Moment in the Sun via “Designing Spaces” Show on Lifetime Network
SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Simply and affordably powering your home with solar power will be the feature of popular television show Designing Spaces in an upcoming segment spotlighting California-based solar energy lease provider American Solar Direct (ASD).
The “Think Green” episode of Designing Spaces, a national home improvement show, will air on Thursday, May 17, and again on July 6 on the Lifetime cable network and explore a Southern California family’s decision to go solar with American Solar Direct.
“Anyone who views this segment will quickly realize the advantages of a home solar system–and choosing American Solar Direct to help their family realize that dream,” said Geoff Atkins, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer. “We’ve all heard about harnessing the power of the sun. Now, in this highly informative Designing Spaces segment, everyone will see how easy it is to make this a reality.”
Featuring interviews with Robert Evans, an ASD sales representative, the Think Green edition of Designing Spaces answers homeowners’ most common questions – from expense, to maintenance, to helping the environment.
“American Solar Direct represents a perfect solution in the marketplace when it comes to making homes more energy efficient in an affordable way,” said Lysa Liemer, Designing Spaces executive vice president of programming and chief operating officer. “What also impressed us was the amount of time ASD spends with customers to make sure they get the right solution and answers to all of their questions.”
The segment showcases the Chatsworth home of Leslie and Mark Cohen, who can count themselves among the thousands of homeowners who have benefited from immediate, dramatic savings in their energy costs achieved by installing a solar system. During filming, Designing Spaces caught the Cohen’s electric meter spinning backwards, which meant that they were sending the solar-generated electricity they were not using back into the grid.
Mark Cohen said on the show that he realized there was an urgent need to get a solar system on his roof. “As electric costs go up every year, we will be saving a lot of money,” he said. Leslie Cohen added that she liked having solar because it was an opportunity to help the environment and create a better future for her children and grandchildren.
The segment also highlights American Solar Direct’s many unique offerings in the residential solar market, including the low up-front cost, a fixed monthly payment and a long-term maintenance program.
