I have been doing a lot research on solar systems and solar panels and have come up with some numbers that are a start for making solar power available to all classes of people. There are big tax breaks that are available as well, but I don't have all the specifics. The quotes I have do not include installation, shipping or hardware needed. I'm still looking into working with companies to sell products at wholesale, the problem I run into is they want me to sell their product at a fixed rate they choose for me. I don't want that because it makes it a moot point. I would like to have the lowest prices available, but so far I haven't met that goal. I can put systems together for far less than most companies want for their systems and that's a start. It looks like a grid tie system of 3kw of solar panels would run about $11,200.00 as it stands. This would not include battery backup. If anyone knows a way to get this price down so solar businesses can crop up everywhere please share your thoughts so we have a solar powered country. I want solar panels as common as home computers. If all structures had solar panels, there would be little or no draw on the power grid. There would be such a surplus of energy it would be unreal. Lets work together and make this happen. This is my goal and I will spend the rest of my life trying to accomplish it if I must. It's a win for everyone because this would open up more jobs than what could be filled. This would add value to all houses and help the housing market. When full electric cars hit the market, there will be power for them. Let the discussion begin!
