My neighbor is doing a Home Depot solar deal....... - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
he was raving about how easy it was to get the financing and paperwork done for the federal and state credits. If you are a "normal" residential user the system will save you money. Energy hogs, (too big a house, heated pool etc) may not see the savings as quickly. System seem to be scalable, he can add more capacity later if needed.
I was skeptical about the payback until he said, "Look at this way, imagine if a few years back you could have bought a lifetime supply of gas for your car at 75 cents a gallon - no one controls the sun". Since a lot of electricity comes from coal or oil/gas fueled power plants, this product could be revolutionary. Maybe take the Arabs out of play...........????
I'll try to post his results when the install is done.
