Care to share any of the purchase/install/ROI costs?

If you are looking to buy a house that has already installed solar panels, how can you find out if it's set up to use the electricity generated or sell it back?

Basically in bcs csu and btu pay back at market rate if at all and in general not going to be much. So if you are paying csu .0.15 kwh you might get. 0.03-0.05 kwh.

I have a buddy in Paris, TX who just had the music man, er, solar panel man do a sit down with him. Here's what he was told:

"Just completed the solar panal sales pitch meeting...

Would install 13.9kW system that would cover 110% of my current average use (37 panels, 350-370W each over approximately 445 sq feet) for $55K, less federal allowance of $14430, leaving $41070 financed over 25-yrs at $172-215/mo depending on credit. Monthly payment includes all equipment, install labor and warranty 'for 25-years', including 'roof penetration'. Hailstorm damage, lightening, etc would be under home owners ins."

This is on a home with a current average bill of $260.
"What's this button do?"

Depends where they live. If they live on any of the apartments close to the university (that are on university leased land), then they don't pay anything. For example the "Park West" complex with over 2000 apartments are on University's lease land and they are not contributing to our taxes.

[I believe] there will be two meters. Also an agreement has to be in place between CSU and the owner, something you would likely have to enter into yourself.

Why doesn't our area do Net Metering?
