Is there an electric bill if you go solar?

Someone asked me the other day if there is an electric bill when you have solar? Yes and No. If you have enough solar panels there will be no electric bill. It depends on your usage. If you purchase a large enough system then no there is no bill. You will have the loan on the solar panels. If you lease the panels you have the lease payment. If you have a smaller system then yes there is an electric bill. Last month my electric bill was 25 dollars. My lease is $61 a month. So the total for this month is $86. Not bad considering my old electric bill was $150 to $185 each May for years.

    Same here. My bill for May to SCE was under $7 for about 56 kW from SCE and my lease is $68 so total of $75 when usually closer to $100 for May. My system is smaller than Dan’s.
