Let’s talk about costs. Self-Install vs Professional Install When I originally planned solar, I was going to have a professional do the installation. I decided not to, partially because the conversations got weird, and partially because I got a deal on the panels. At the time, AM Solar was running a sale on their 135 […]

  • The Beauty Without - There are so many financial decisions where we have to weigh the difference between the cost and the convenience. It sounds like the solar panels will be a bit of a sanity saver and that’s always worth something in my book.ReplyCancel
