Teresa and I went to the San Diego convention center on October 15 to check out the Solar Power expo. Join me in checking out all the latest and greatest in solar technology.
Two huge factors that prevent people from greenifying thier homes? Either they think it’s expensive or they think the process is simply too tedious. However, few people know that costs can definitely vary with photovoltaic systems — and the majority of solar installers will give you a zero-obligation quote based on your home. There’s no reason not to at least figure out how much it would cost.
And really? It’s not as complicated as it sounds. Here’s your quick and easy guide to going solar.
