Strenski explains, “Solar power continues to drop in price as more people install systems. A typical Michigan home uses about 600 kWh per month, or 20 kWh per average day. With four hours of peak sun to capture that energy, the typical home needs 5,000 watts of solar panels to be 100 percent solar-powered, and a contractor could do everything for about $15,000. The 30 percent federal renewable energy tax credit would make your out-of-pocket cost about $10,000.”
Location: 100 Market Place, Ypsilanti. For more information, more than 70 solar installations can be seen at SolarYpsi.org. Take a virtual solar tour at SolarYpsi.org/AerialVideos.html.
