Going solar - a cheaper option, anyone?
I am planning to install a PV solar array on my house in the spring and I would like to know if any of you guys here have solar panels and what's their efficiency? I have a budget of less than $15,000 so I have to carefully plan this one.
I got few quotes from different companies and now I have to choose between monocrystalline and polycrystalline panels. I got recommended the mono- version because of higher efficiency, but they cost much more compared to the other type.
I was reading here that efficiency is not an important factor, but the solar companies told me it actually does, especially for locations that don't get enough sunlight.
Now I'm confused, because the price difference is quite big. I would love to hear from anyone here that has a solar system, if you can provide me few details about it. I would appreciate it!
