Residents in Martinsville are being offered free solar panels. In fact, solar panel sales people have begun knocking on doors with their offers.
For that reason, Electric Department Director Durwin Joyce presented to City Council on Tuesday night an agreement seeking their approval for him to use in dealing with this new entity.
“The company is knocking on your door, and they make it easy. The savings can pay for the cost of the system, but it might take 10 or 15 years,” Joyce said.
