Check with your local power company as to whether they have a program to buy excess electricity collected by your solar panels. Some utility companies will give homeowners credits to apply to any energy provided to them. These programs are becoming more available as more and more people install solar panels on their home.
If after installing solar panels you find that you are producing more energy than you need, you can sell the extra energy that you produce back to the electric company. This method will help you recoup the cost of your solar energy system's installation and parts. Additionally, after you have recovered your costs, you will be making a profit.
