Thought I'd document my journey to getting solar energy panels installed on my home.
Congratulations! I wanted to put one on mine for some time but couldn't justify the cost. Generation cost here is currently 7 cents/KWh for windpower sourced energy, I don't recall the total cost, but transmission is around the same.
At that price, it was more cost effective to put the money toward an 18 SEER HVAC (up from a 12 year old unit) and switch from electric to gas hot water.
Still, if cost continues to come down, I plan to revisit this question.
