I have some folks coming over to the house today to give me some estimates for putting 3-5 kilowatts of Solar panels on the roof and then hooking it into the grid. The new tax incentives will immediately pay for 40% of the cost and PNM incentives will also be very lucrative. If the city and county move quickly they can also take advantage of new legislation that will further sweeten the deal. Although they don't seem to be publicizing the process so far.
No, it wont pay for itself completely but it will cause less coal to be burned to power our home.
