Here is a comparison of the cost of solar power vs. utility rates in the U.S. 

Analysis assumptions:

* State average values are determined using values for state capitals.
* Solar generation figures are based on an average-sized residential solar PV system of 5 kW.
* Installation cost is estimated to be $4/watt (before the 30% federal tax credit, which we take into account).
* The source of the utility rates is EIA.

One way to make solar energy more accessible is to decrease the upfront expenses for the consumer. As we discussed in an earlier post, there are three different paths to putting solar panels on your roof. You can lease them, you can purchase them outright, or you can choose to be a solar utility customer (also known as a power purchasing agreement, or PPA). Each of these three paths has its own advantages and disadvantages. In today’s article, we’ll focus on the first option: the solar lease.

Building your own solar power generator is very satisfying, but before we get started, please note that installing solar panels does carry some inherent risks and is not something you should be doing if you have NO experience in electrical wiring. You can get a nasty electric shock while doing high-voltage wiring, but the risk doesn’t end there. If the components are not wired properly, a power surge can damage the inverter and possibly cause a fire.

One of the greatest advantages of solar panels is their versatility. You can string together thousands of them to build utility-scale solar parks, or you can hook up a single panel with a battery to power your off-grid adventures. While in theory you can just go to the nearest Walmart and put a 12v solar panel kit in your shopping cart, you really need to know what you are shopping for before you whip out that credit card.
