Ok, so I don’t see how this would make sense, unless you had an off the grid cabin or something that you could not get power to.
To save money nope. Here in Texas is is hot and sunny most of the year and it still does not make sense.
I don’t know what you guys pay per KWH for electric, but we have deregulated energy down here. With reliant, I am paying 9 cents per KWH including all fees.
I just signed a 9 month contract with Gexa for 5.5 cents per KWH including all fees.
Average usage is 500 kwh when the AC is not running, and 1000-1300kwh when it is running.
Never paid more than $125 for a month of electricity in my house, usually it is like 50 bucks.
When you do a cost per KWH of solar, it may be a little lower than 5.5 cents, but you lock that price in due to a fixed price of equipment.
What happens when you need to repair the roof? Probably costs a few bucks to have the contractor come out and take off then reinstall equipment.
Does Buffalo get enough sunlight to generate the optimal amount of power?
If you want to save money, insulate your house, install good doors and windows, and buy energy smart appliances.
