Before considering solar for your home or business, you should look for ways to reduce your electrical usage. One easy way to do this is by installing LED light bulbs. Diane West from Diane West Jewelry and Art, a local Durango art gallery, ask me to evaluate solar for her gallery. Before installing solar I suggested she replace the 90 some odd light bulbs with LED to reduce her lighting and A/C costs (the LED bulbs produce much less heat when compared to incandescent bulbs). She has now reduced her electrical usage and can offset her electric bill with a smaller solar system!
