We live in California & want to OWN a solar system. Suggestions?

We live in the desert, and have a large roof area that gets sun all day. Anyone know of a company that sells and installs solar panels? We want to pay outright to own it.

    That's a great idea!! Here are some great options:
  • The solar companies here are a dime a dozen, be very careful before purchasing and do your research, there a lot of fly by night sharks out there. Check the CSLB site before having anything installed. I have not yet found one cost effective enough for my purposes but still looking - the prices will continue to come down too, it isn't cheap, but the long term benefits are worth it, especially here in CA where we are blessed with so much sunshine!

    Contact your electric company to find out if there is a promotion for solar. We just went to a presentation where the city would have paid a significant part of the cost. Unfortunately we have too many trees in our yard to qualify.
