FTC Workshop Will Examine Competition and Consumer Protection Issues in the Rooftop Solar Business
In 2014 we installed solar panels on our home located. While the initial investment was substantial, we are extremely pleased with our solar panels. We will likely see our return of investment by 2020. We have 30 solar panels on our roof, and they supply almost all of our electricity needs. Our annual electric bill is around $150. We appreciate our local utility company, KC Power & Light for partnering with solar companies to make this a possibility. As a result of our solar panels, we have inspired four other families in our area to install solar panels as well as our church. All are very pleased.
