A 7 kW residential system will typically cost about $25,000, but due to government incentives from the state (25% of the total value from South Carolina only) and federal (30% of the total value) government, and $1 per watt from Duke Energy, this out-of-pocket expense will be reduced to about $6,000 after incentives.

The panels still produce energy on a cloudy day, because the sun’s radiation penetrates cloud cover. The panels will not work in shaded areas.

 

A solar panel was introduced in the third quarter of 2011 that produces energy at a cheaper rate than coal and nuclear generated power. The annual technological growth is exponential, but government subsidies end in 2016 and the price of solar technology will have reached a similar price as the current subsidized rates by 2016.
No. The electricity you generate from your solar panels is fed back into the grid. At the end of each month your local utility will pay you the market value, plus an additional Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC), for each kWh you produce. This is called net metering and owners can actually see their meters spin backwards!

A roof that faces south is the ideal roof for a solar panel system. A roof facing south east or south west will still produce substantial amounts of energy.
