If you install solar panels, you could end up with more than just a good feeling for helping to use renewable energy. It can also make a significant difference with your wallet.
Grid-Tied Solar Panels and Cost Savings

Solar panel installation also may bring you some money from the government. Under recent environmental legislation, there is a tax rebate if you install solar panels, and depending on various factors of course, the rebates can be fairly substantial: as high as $50,000 in some cases.
