While going off the grid entirely may be difficult for many homeowners, generating a portion of a home’s electrical needs is definitely doable. The payoff depends on the tax incentives from the government and local utilities. As prices drop, residential solar power is on the rise, thanks in part to the available tax credits and rebates that make it more affordable. Residential solar power, which relies on photovoltaic panels, or PV for short, make sense as way to generate power close to the user while eliminating use of fossil fuels. The payback on the installation cost will vary depending on your incentives and utility rates. Check Project and Construction for a quotation if you need help.
