great news shodson... you're lucky to be in CA... here in VA, cost of electricity is so low that utility is not cooperative on buying back... gonna take some serious Federal legislation to get them to budge.

Here's a recent electric bill:

Pretty cool...840 KWh for $18 bucks (minus your lease payment). For me that would be an $115 electric bill (.136). But, I only use about 500 KWh a month on average. ($70). So, I doubt it would benefit me much. Especially since my electric provider doesn't purchase excess power. Glad you found something that works for you.

@shodson, wondering how your solar panels are doing after3-4 years. Also, wondering if you were able to get some pictures either of your house or another similar installation by the company you used.

Shodson, have you claimed 30% solar tax credit? you will save your installation fee.

@MWinfrey, the system is still kicking, providing us electricity at a low rate. It was installed and is managed by SolarCity, another Elon Musk/Mark Goodson/Bill Todman production.

I don't have any pictures of the roof, but Google Maps does. Thanks Google/NSA!

@supermht, Solar City takes the tax credit, uses it to fund the lease. Businesses get a more generous govt tax credit than individuals, at least at the time I got the system that's the way it was.

I got my system $0 down and just pay a small monthly lease, which is less than my monthly electric bill before I got the system. Win-win.
