In the past, having solar was just a distant dream, now it is reality. Back in the old days I thought of solar, but the loan payments were not in the budget at the time. Now, I have a small lease payment, a small electric bill and by the end of the year, it looks like I will save $1000. This is my first year, eight months in so far. My electric bill is down less than half of what it was. Each month is 30 dollars or so. Not bad for a medium system of 3.7 kw (16 panels). Now everyday is solar power!
