Sustainability and savings with the best solar panels.


Meet the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Orange (FCCO) in the city of Orange, California. The church members describe themselves on their website as “a community of faithful Christians who seek every day to discover once again the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives and in our world.” They felt they were spending too much money on electric bills before they installed solar, because electricity cost them $1,135/month on average.


Aikyum Solar came recommended to the FCCO Church by Pastor Mike from Foothill Church, where Aikyum customer Lynn Dann is a congregation member. The church discovered Aikyum Solar online on Yelp and Google as a best value solar installer. After their due diligence and a competitive proposal, the church chose Aikyum Solar and asked us to install custom solar panels for them. For more information on Aikyum’s installation process, visit this page.


After Aikyum Solar installed solar panels for them, their electric bill costs them $24/month on average. That’s a 97.89% decrease! Now, the church can focus on worshiping and avoid worrying about electric bills. The church saved $27,000 on taxes, and its payback period is 6 years. In 25 years they will have saved a total of $333,000. Aikyum is happy to help your church receive similar savings!


We received solar proposals for 6 solar companies. Harina is an engineer just like me, and came up with the best solar solution for our Church at a competitive low price. Her crew was knowledgeable and professional. We were up and running within 6 weeks of signing the contract. Our SCE bills were over $1,000 each month and now they are ZERO!
