Hi my name is Chuck and I decided to go solar after looking at the net system cost after the 30% federal tax credit and PG&E credit, and then my yearly expenditure on electricity. I calculate I’m earning approximately a 17% return at current utility rates! Where can you get that for your money? Living in Fresno, CA we get a lot of sun and hot summers, which means a lot of AC usage and a perfect environment for solar. Real Goods put in a commercial system consisting of 2,400 panels at my place of work and their workmanship and professionalism was excellent.
