I just lost my post into never never land all 3 paragraphs. Shorter version. We decide on a $0.00 out of pocket lease. I decider to go with Vivint solar over Solar city who in 2013 refused to adjust issues with their contract at that time. We used 15kw of eletric and had a 13kw system install, those are rounded up numbers. My house faces South and capable of holding an 18kw system. In January PSE&G put 2 way meter on home. 1st PSE&G bill is $10.83, 1st solar bill $170.00 last year eletric bill was over $500.00 for this same time last year. My meter has back up 1000kw since PSE&G allowed panels to go on line in May. Vivint does not use converters on the side of your house, their panels are individually equipped so straight AC come off the roof in the meter. I've learned a few things and share as time goes on.
