"And the IRS is going to drive around to every house to check the roof?"

no, but if you generate excess electricity and get paid for it, the electric company will likely send you a 1099 or equivalent form which is entered into the BIG IRS computer and your return will get bounced if you don't include it.

No, they can't tax your 'personal consumption' any more than they can tax you for burning firewood in your fireplace, or opening the windows when it's 70 degrees outside.

Of course, if the POWER COMPANY installs them, it's a matter of record.

If you buy them and install them, then want the 35% rebate...well, you're in the system.
