Space is no issue at all on my parent's 30 acres.

My house has essentially no yard, so I'm confined to a few small sections of south facing roof and west facing that may be shaded in the late afternoon.

As it sits, the incentives will pay $14,000 on a 6 kWh ($2.34/watt) system at my parents, and that doesn't factor in the 26% federal tax credit on whatever amount over that it goes. It's a no-brainer to contract this out for my parents.

I'm getting a bid for an 8 kWh system at my house, which is the minimum size that maximizes the subsidies. I only qualify for $7,500 ($0.94/watt), but I can still deduct 26% of my cost from my federal tax liability.
