Victory Food Service is one company that has gone solar. They are a distributor of frozen and refrigerated foods, so they are constantly using electricity.

General Manager Sunder Luthra says his bill at Victory Food Service before the solar panels were installed was almost $300,000 a year. Now, it's $56,000 less.

OnForce Solar also installs panels in homes. They say more and more homeowners are switching because of the tax incentives.
