I'm starting to take a serious look at solar for my house, probably photoelectric panels.
First part is to check out the economics, starting with a visit to (or from) Global Solar Center. This is a web site that lets you look at any address in the US using satellite imagery, also a tax incentive database to find out what the payback would be on solar.
Interestingly, California does not have the best incentives anymore. In fact Global Solar just did a study which shows which states do have the best packages.
What I found out is that it would take a while to get payback on solar for my house, in part, since we use relatively power, despite all the systems and gadgetry.
Any have any real-life suggestions for people living in the Cole Valley neighborhood of San Francisco?
