We feel that our country should minimize the need for fossil and nuclear sources for electrical power when an ample source is available from the sun. But the cost of an installation of photovoltaic panels was too much for us to justify. And the maintenance of them would be a burden we didn’t want to assume. Real Goods Solar offered a more palatable solution by their owning the hardware and our paying them for electricity at a rate lower than that of our utility (Excel). Further, RGS would maintain the installation to assure peak production of electricity. This arrangement seemed to us to be a good compromise.
