There are many options for trying to lower electric costs. Adding solar panels is one way such way. When first introduced, solar panels were much too expensive for the average person to install on their home. However, costs on the panels and their installation have come down drastically over the years. Tax credits are also available for people who choose to install solar panels, making them even more affordable. In 2013, the average cost of a 5w solar panel installation was between $20,000 and $35,000. Today, that same installation would be around $10,000 – $13,500 after the available tax credits. Some energy companies even offer programs where they will cover the cost of part of the installation!
