Would you like to have your very own, clean source of energy for your home? This is an attractive prospect for many, and with recent advancements in solar technology, it can be a viable solution, though not perfect.
Solar technology has been around for a long time, and prices and availability keeps dropping. The main deterrent for many is the steep upfront cost. Unless you are doing a gradual transfer over to solar energy you need to invest in the panels, batteries and installation all at once, which can add up to quite a sum. On the other hand, in some areas you can get a tax rebate for installing solar panels. There is also the possibility that you can get a credit from your utility company on any surplus energy you generate.
Another downside is that panels installed on your roof will need to be removed to do any repairs on your home, which will incur extra costs.
