We haven't signed anything yet, but it's looking like solar power for our house is within our reach. The estimator was here and we came up with a plan that would make our payments for the equipment the same as our average electric bill over the past year. We're close to needing new shingles, so we're waiting on an estimate for that so we can roll that into the project and get the 26% tax break on the shingles, too. Since we'll need them soon anyway, the timing is just about perfect. The interest rate on the loan is crazy low. 0.99% to 1.99% depending on how many years. It should take just a few days to get all that together. The time lag will come from the county. They said it's taking 3-6 weeks these days to get a building permit. Even though it won't reduce our electric cost till it's paid for, it will lock it so it won't keep going up. Our average bill has gone up probably $15-20 over the past 5 years.
