Meet Matt Brigs

Matt Brigs is a US Air Force veteran who served both stateside and overseas during his time as an air traffic controller. After separating from the military, Matt purchased his first home in New Jersey. He soon found himself with a massive $400 electric bill. While developing a budget for himself, he found this crazy cost was unsustainable. After looking into going solar, he learned he could save more than 50% of this cost by switching to solar energy. After installing a solar system for no money down, his net energy cost is only $24 a month.  Matt soon started getting questions from all his family, friends, and neighbors. They ask how solar works and he explains how he saves so much for something that cost him literally nothing out of pocket. He realized the only reason more homes don't have solar systems is because they are uneducated. Once a homeowner sees how much they can save they almost certainly switch. After helping 3 families convert to solar themselves and see similar savings, he formed SolarAdvantages LLC, a company dedicated to educating, explaining, and ultimately upgrading homeowners to solar. He explains how they are taking advantage of the same federal and state funded programs that make the transition a no brainer. The common misconception is that solar systems are expensive with a big upfront cost but that is not true at all. Solar savings start immediately from the moment you decide to learn all about it. He loves educating homeowners and providing them the tools to save their hard earned money.

Meet Michael Despo

Hello! I'm Michael Despo, Solar Consultant and Co-Founder of The Solar Advantages. My journey into solar energy began in 2018 with a simple yet transformative decision: installing solar panels on my roof. This not only significantly cut down my energy bills but also led to times where my utility company paid me for excess energy. It was a revelation that sparked a deep desire to make a difference in the world.

From Asset Management to Solar Advocacy

With a background in Asset Management IT and Operations, I've always been adept at optimizing resources. However, I longed to contribute more meaningfully. Transitioning to the solar industry allowed me to align my career with my core values of environmental stewardship and sustainable living.
