Solar power could benefit you, even if you live in a region that sees a lot of clouds year-round. Many people are under the misconception that solar energy is only useful in areas that see a lot of sun. The current technology actually can use the energy that penetrates the clouds to power your home.
To realize even better savings, purchase grid tied panel systems. If your panels are connected, you might be able to sell extra power to the local utility. This should help you pay for your solar energy system and will also give you the option to draw power from the main grid in case your panels are not functioning.

There is no need to hook your solar power system onto a power grid in your area. You have the ability to be independent from the power companies in your area. In other words, you won't need to change electric services should you move, nor will you see high electric bills anymore.
If you are looking for a solar energy system, make sure to ask your friends and neighbors about their experiences with various companies. A recommendation, or a warning, that you are familiar with can help you to make a smart buying decision. Your friends can also let you know about their experiences after installation, including any warranty issues and cost savings the system has offered.
