Solar Panel For House

plywood and plexiglass

Shawn Said:

Would a solar panel for every house be a stimulus help package?

We Answered:

Nope.

The panels are too expensive and produce too little electricity to be a realistic energy source for homes.

I considered a solar power setup for my home last summer. In order to produce $76 worth of energy a month I would have had to pay $23,000 (and this is including a $12,000 subsidy funded by the taxpayers).

This system simply could not generate enough electricity during its expected lifetime to pay for its installation costs.

Discuss It!
