Solar Myth#1: Solar panels are too expensive.
Fact: Solar energy pricing is at an all time low according to reports released by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). Installing a solar electric system on your home increases resale value. A U.S. Department of Energy study showed that buyers will pay up to $15,000 more for a home equipped with solar panels. Adding even more saving potential, government tax credits can offset the cost of a solar energy system with a 30 percent federal tax credit (currently through 2019) and in Montana a 500.00 per tax payer tax credit.
