Using the sun to power our homes is getting cheaper and cheaper. In fact, there are many companies that have now started looking at solar power for their business instead of paying money to be connected to the electric grid. Of course, it is a fairly large upfront investment still, but with constant improvements to batteries and solar panels, prices are going down, availability is going up, and savings are getting better.
You should make sure that you shop around a bit before deciding on what company to use since a poor installation could end up more expensive than expected. Installing solar panels is a precise job, and since they often are attached to the roof of your home, you don’t want any leaks because of a mistake that the installer makes. Especially since that would mean that the panels will have to come off before the leak can be repaired.
