The reason I don't have Solar or Wind and I've looked at both is the payback isn't good enough to put the money out. I looked last week or so, $12,000(hardware only) of a grid connected solar panels using 6 hours a day will provide about 1/2 of my utility bill (20 year payback). Only way to quickly make Solar or Wind payback better is to double or triple electricty cost.
