Solar City is a great business plan.... for Solar City. For you... not so much. Not horrible... but you don't own the equipment and you lease it. Most of the time, in the near term at least, the cash flow is net zero. Down the road if rates increase you might save a bit.

CCS Solar is experienced and I know their electrician is top rate (they replaced a service for me). Good guys, and you get the benefit rather than the installing company.

With Xcel dropping the rebate amount significantly, you have to crunch the numbers harder to see if it makes sense. Kinda ticks me off. If we had solar on most rooftops, we could drill and mine a LOT LESS even with increased population. Seems shortsighted for everyone but Xcel.
