Re: I've gone and done it ... solar install

I agree.

Problem is that many people don't have the up front cash to put up a solar installation. Many can't even borrow from the HELOC because their mortgages are underwater or the banks aren't lending.

Where I live though, we have few incentives for solar. The cooperative does not take part in the incentives offered by the state so the cost rises substantially. On the flip side we do not pay the societal benefits charge on our bills.

Also the price of SRECs is going down. There is so much solar here in this state that SRECs are going for $200-$300 instead of $600 they used to go for.
