    If I got some help with the cost, I would seriously think about this.  Although I live in Ct., my house gets loads of sunshine and I have a large roof that could probably give me enough energy with some left over.  Just think what would happen if everyone went to solar for their energy needs.  They have to make it possible for people to put in solar roofs for the same cost as what they have now.

      electricity with photovoltaic (PV) panels than it is to buy power from the electric company.  Within five or six years, they will be just about equal.  Start putting money aside now, and work on reducing your electric demand.  As the world gets hotter more financing programs may be created between then and now, so having some funds reserved will make it easier for you to jump on it.  

      Renewable energy brings national security.
