"In NH where they as paying 15.8 cents/Kwh electric bill's can run $500 to $1000 a month for an average home with electric heat and central air.

So, at $5000 to $12,000 a year 5yrs is entirely reasonable."

Yeah, with 3 hours of sun a day in December and January, that won't make much difference, will it? And tons of cloudy days in winter, with snow and ice and dreary winters.

And as everyone adds solar, in the summer time, the power company probably won't even take your power - pay you zero for energy it doesn't need because there is so much supply and not enough demand. The power company will put in it's own solar panels and use them first. And their owned wind power.

Not a whole lot of a/c needs in NH most of summer. (what, summers last from July4 to Labor Day if you're lucky in most of NH. Snow starts in October. Same in upstate NY....been there, done that.

Smart folks in NH use gas or oil heating. The rural folks burn wood by the cord. So far, the government doesn't tax it.
