Thomas Koerner, Senior Vice President of Canadian Solar, commented, "We are thrilled to collaborate with D.R. Horton to help homeowners significantly reduce energy expenses amidst soaring electricity costs in California. Our solar panels, paired with the EP Cube, not only enable homeowners to save on electricity bills, but also provide a reliable power source during rolling blackouts, ensuring their homes remain functional and comfortable."
