Sader Power easing the stress and finances of solar energy

(WJBK) -

A new solar company, Sader Power, is opening in Pontiac and will hire 220 people over the near year and a half. Jobs are available for electricians, installers and in the sales department.

Employees unveiled new installation technology for the solar panels at a demonstration on Friday.

"All the components are on the rack itself so there's no more digging in your bag, no more running to your toolbox. Everything I need is right here," Chelsea Dyer says.

And that's what the company's CEO says makes his product more affordable. The entire 3-killowat system can be installed in less than an hour and costs a lot less than other systems. The cost is $7,500 instead of the averagely cost of $18,000 for this type of array.

"A 3-killowat system can power a whole house, depending on the size of the house, and how often you use your air conditioner and appliances," Jon Sader

Sader says there's also a 30 percent federal tax credit and reduced energy costs that come with these solar panels. He says the system will pay for itself in about five years.

Sader started his company in 2011 in Louisiana where he worked with Brad Pitt's 'Make It Right' foundation to help rebuild neighborhoods using green building materials after Huricane Katrina. Now he's back home, in Michigan, expanding his business where he grew up.

    Everyone hates long lines at security checkpoints and the TSA knows it. Now the TSA is sponsoring a contest to encourage anyone with new ideas about how to make the airport security lines go faster. Often for air travelers, the security checkpoint experience is the worst part of their trip. That's why the TSA turned to the crowdsourcing site Innocentive asking for ideas pledging a total of $15,000 in prize money, with at least one $5,000 award.
