How to Go Solar Without Breaking the Bank
I get a lot of calls at Outside Supply from customers and individuals tired of high utility bills, energy surcharges, and the whole mess. They call me looking for a solution to their problems. They want to go all solar for their homes to get rid of their bill and also become more green in the process. Having had a little experience with attempting to go solar on my house, I have usually start with a question regarding the person's average electric bill. Invariably, I get numbers from $200 dollars to $800 dollars a month. I am then quick to explain that it will be very roughly estimated at a cost of $40,000 per hundred dollars of actual energy charges.I can usually hear most individuals jaw hit the floor as I tell them the estimated number. It is almost funny how far we all think our alternative energy technologies have come. Unfortunately, they haven't come far enough for us to continue to live in super inefficient homes that waste tons of power.
