I recently had a guy come out and give me an estimate for solar power for our house. It's pretty damn expensive, but when you consider the fact that I can trade out the monthly payment I make to SDGE and instead start putting the same monthly payment towards a 15-year loan that pays for the solar installation, it starts to make some sense. That means that after 15 years I will no longer have an electricity payment and it also protects me from increases in energy prices, which are 100% guaranteed to happen over those 15 years.
Has anybody gone down this road? What are the pros and cons? Any input would be appreciated!
