While adding solar will definitely lower your electric bill, the initial cost may be cost prohibitive to many customers. One has to ask themselves the following questions: 1) Have I considered the initial cost? 2) Have I considered the cost for the upkeep of the system? 3) Has the technology slowed to the point that the panels aren’t getting more efficient? 4)Are my numbers correct for my cost payback analysis, and what if my power provider changes their rate structure? 5)Have I done everything I already can to lower my electric bill (change bulbs to LED, service my appliances, etc.)?
