Some folks need encouragement and a greater sense of confidence in order to convince them solar energy really is more energy efficient and cost-effective. Proof of the dependability of solar energy abounds in many municipalities where we find solar power

I think most people are put off by the initial cost and the thought that it wouldn't work in their climate.
Our house is all electric and the cost has become prohibitive. What we found out is that the panels will pay for themselves within just a few years and energy can be stored for use during cloudy spells.
A no-brainer!

The arguments make no rational sense.

If you can cover the original cost then its the best way

Germany is using solar energy since the 80's, and they are saving a lot of money.

I would absolutely love to install solar energy, but just don't have the money. At the age of 75, I would never recoup the cost anyway!

I know other people who can well afford it, but don't like the look of it on their roof Shame that aesthetics conquers common sense..

I know some people who are environmentalists who do not consider solar energy to be environmentally-friendly because the material that is used on the panels is not itself environmentally-friendly in the way it is sourced and manufactured. They claim that this is true even for the heating & cooling panels, but even more so for solar cells to generate electricity. I would be interested to know what others think of this.

I would love to be able to go solar. When our roof has to be replaced we will then make the start.
Noted. Great article. Thank You Cher.
