Had 3 companies come out and give me bids. Could not see where they would save me money. They all claim your paid for and nothing but free after 15 yrs.
Where I dispute that is, in all their projections their is no maintenance cost involved. There is nothing going to run maintenance free for 15 years. If you need to replace
your roof you have to remove and replace the panels so pretty much like another full installation. If your younger and will remain in the same home for life maybe.

I know I’m too young to own a house,but Tesla also has solar roof shingles. Actually not bad. Idk how much they are, supposed to have like a 20+ yr life. But I don’t think they will withstand here in Houston. There ratings for wind is up to a cat3 I believe. But I like the concept. Seems cool now but probably not practical for few decades.
