I've been looking into it in my area as well.
Are you looking at battery storage too? For the nighttime?
Thats where a big initial expense comes in. The storage.
You can always start with panels only ..Connected, and Sync'd up with
the commercial power that comes into your home.
You only get daytime power, any excess is fed back to the grid, and is
credited to your power bill..So at that point it's really supplemental power.
You use the grid for "storage".
Then, later when you've saved all that money!, you could look into a storage system for your private power storage..
