Last year I had solar panels installed on my roof under a deal where I pay nothing up front for the installation and pay the solar company for the power I produce at a rate about 75% of what I pay the electric utility.
I just got my April bill from the electric company.
It was a credit for $15.54, so I actually produced more electricity than I consumed in April.
Over the winter months I met about half of my electric needs from solar.
I thought that was pretty good for the Boston area.
So it will be interesting to see what happen this summer when solar production should be maximized.
Your growing utility bill is just one of the reasons why you should consider going for solar energy, take a look at this site to find out about the benefits of installing solar panels.
