Solar Power is CONTAGIOUS!
A new study confirms what social scientists have long known – once one person in a neighborhood gets solar, others in the same neighborhood are more likely to get solar, too.
From the study authors:
“It’s almost like if you see a solar panel from out of your window, you decide to put one on your own roof as well,” says study author Leonie Wenz from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany. “Of course, one might think that other factors are more relevant, for instance income or educational background, or word-of-mouth within the same social network such as a school district. So we compared all these different options, and we’ve been amazed by the outcome. It turns out that, no, geographical distance really is the most important factor. The more panels there are within a short radius around my house, the more likely I’m of having one, too.”
There you have it!
Science confirms what we’ve seen time and time again in our 8 years of installing solar. Solar is incredibly contagious in the best way (just like smiles!), so let’s get out and spread some sunshine! Invite your neighbors, friends and family to the clean energy party today!

Robco Referral Rewards Donation Matches have a huge impact on our local community.
Creating Hope in Henderson with Referral Rewards
In early 2018, Robco met the residents of Heritage at Cadence, a 55+ retirement community in Henderson. Five residents were shopping for solar as a group. A friend of one of the residents was an Robco customer and he recommended they call us for a bid. They ultimately selected ROBCO for contracts for all 5 homes. Then, as those installs were completed, the referrals really got rolling! To date, we have done over 50 homes in Heritage and the larger Cadence Community! Here’s the best part though – many of the Heritage residents have selected to donate their Referral Rewards to a local non-profit working in the Henderson community called Hopelink of Southern NV. With their generosity and Robco matching funds, Hopelink has put over $9,000 to use helping to feed needy seniors, providing hygiene items, housing families in crisis, paying medical and utility bills and providing job training.
Helping Foster Kids Get on The Road to Success
We were so pleased to welcome Lorrie with the CASA Foundation today. One of our customers, Mr. Ortiz, is a CASA volunteer. He elected to donate his Referral Reward to the CASA Foundation. Robco matches donations to a 501 3(c) group at 100%, so we were able to give $600 to this great cause today.
The CASA Foundation was established in June 1983 to promote and support the efforts of the Clark County CASA Program by providing fundraising, volunteer recognition, program assistance, and public relations activities.
Over the years, the CASA Foundation has added another component to its mission and that is to address the children’s special and other needs not provided for through other means. This includes items such as medical needs, transportation costs for visits with family members, summer camp, sports, music lessons, and tutoring. The CASA Foundation is committed to making a difference in the lives of children in foster care in Southern Nevada.
A new initiative with CASA is to fund driver’s Ed. lessons for kids who are about to age out of foster care. They found a company that provides the lessons and the use of a car to take the test for just about $600. Lorrie says getting a foster kid a driver’s license is likely what this donation will fund.
