This system is looking smart with 48 all black panels situated on two roofs.

Also smart? The homeowner’s decision to go solar. A 48-panel system might sound expensive, but it actually reduced the owner’s household expenses, even when you factor in his new monthly solar loan payment.

How is this possible, you ask?

Because, in addition to covering most of his electric bill with his own solar, he gets green income as compensation for making pollution-free energy. The green income minus the little bit he still pays the utility, and minus the loan payment, comes out to $148 less than what he was paying the utility for all his electricity before solar.

And that is why solar is the new energy standard!
