Solar In Action: Charlie of Gobles, Michigan

I’ve never studied solar systems, but I knew I wanted one once I heard the power company would allow them to be used (as the production source). I wanted a big enough system to cover my usage. Since I use around 15,000 kWh a year, I called around to get pricing and to understand what was available nowadays.
