The power companies will NEVER pay you even close to what you pay them for power.
Unless you can isolate your system, solar is pretty much a waste on grid.
The power companies rape you just like the banks.
Not necessarily. The power companies dont actually "pay" you for power you supply back in the form of a check. They do however, apply a credit to your account. For months with low usage, it accumulates and pays for months with high usage
I've often considered making a canned well supply - a bolt-together pre-designed well pump solar power unit anyone could install that would fall back to house power if the batteries ran flat. I'd like to get the well off of the mains for the most part.
