My solar panels were installed today! It was quite an operation with four trucks and about eight guys, and they were here all afternoon working on it. The panels will be inspected by the city next week, and inspected by the electric company after that. Then they go live! So exciting.
I highly recommend SolarCity. I’m leasing these panels for $37 a month, which is about the same price as my electric bill. No installation fee or upfront costs, and the term is 20 years.
