Have you ever thought about using solar energy at your home? While you may not think of Wisconsin as an extremely solar-friendly state, the fact is that it’s probably ranked somewhere around the middle when it comes to states that can benefit from solar energy.
There are typically two hurdles that people think about first when it comes to deciding whether or not to go solar. How much will it cost me, and will the panels be ugly? The good news is that with solar technology these days, neither of those hurdles may be a problem. For example, homeowners who install photovoltaic (solar) panels on their property can benefit from tax credits, and they may be able to take advantage of the requirement for public utility companies to pay you for excess energy returned to the grid. For the second hurdle, panels are more efficient than ever. And, depending on your property, you may not even need to install them on your roof.
