I talk a lot about the cost of solar panels for sale dropping. In the last couple of years the prices have been dropping consistently over the range of solar panels. Since the solar power companies are also claiming lower returns it is hard to know how long this will last.
However, proof that solar panels are getting cheaper and cheaper is the recent news that Solar Millenium AG, the largest farm, will be switching from thermal solar to solar photovoltaic panels. The company will be installing the 500MW farm in California.
So what does this mean for you? Well, that depends on who you are. But if you are the person who wants to install solar panels on your home, cabin, or RV, but have felt it’s too expensive, this might be the time it finally makes financial sense. More and more companies are making solar panels and the number of cheap solar panels are increasing daily. In addition, governments are getting serious about green power and offer all kinds of loans, grants, refunds, and tax cuts. The city I live in has also recently installed a large solar field that will be generating a substantial percent of power for the city. I recommend you find out what kind of program your government is offering.
In addition, remember that you can also save additional money by installing solar panels yourself, and even by assembling them. There are a lot of options to get solar panels on your house. You just have to do a little bit of research to find out which one is best for you.
