It would at least be a good idea to find out what the guy's cost per
KWH for electricity is. Otherwise, you're comparing apples and
oranges with a $600 electric bill, particularly since the poster said
a similar house in a community served by another electric company
would be $200.

I live where electricity is very expensive, and a $600 bill would be
unusual in a house less than 5000 square feet.
For that matter, geo-thermal heating and cooling generally has a much
faster ROI than photovoltaic.
If all you are looking at is cost, you do the cheapest stuff first.
It's often the most effective, anyway.

Start with a solar water heating system. Best bang for your buck.

I'm thinking of going to solar to offset high PG&E cost. We went to home
show and talked to a few solar contractors . But I would like to hear from
people that actually have solar. I just know the basic and the amount of
panels they can install has a lot to do with your savings.
Well every body have they own opinion
Solar power???? I have attended seminar on Solar power when I confronted
manufacture reprisenetive how long for average home to recover investment
answer I got 15 to 18 years and that is no accounting on equipment failure
if that money was invested in CDs Solar power is good for those people
way out where is nothing better available.
So in my opinion it is lot of crap.
