Solar Power Your Home
Putting in a complete solar power system in your home like I have can be very expensive. First there are the panels, then the inverter, and then the batteries. It can cost anywhere from $25,000 to $75,000 to put in this type of system. If you are committed to solar power, including charging your electric car from the solar, this is the way to go. However, if you want to move to solar with a smaller investment, I suggest NET METERING. Net Metering is a solar system that pushes the electricity directly into your electric company’s meter, rather than storing it into a battery array. The meter will spin BACKWARDS during the day when you are making more power than you are using. You will only pay for the NET electricity used. The installation will be less expensive because you do not need the battery array.
