article A new study from The Solar Society suggests that building a solar-powered home could be as cheap as installing a small solar panel on the roof.
The study, which surveyed 2,000 people, found that the cheapest way to install a solar system is to install the panels in a garage or basement, then use a panel to cover the roof of the house.
But it’s important to remember that a home is only as good as the panels that are placed on it, and solar panels don’t always fit all situations.
For example, if you live in a basement, a solar array installed on the top of the roof might be too tall to fit inside.
That’s where a second set of panels is needed, to balance out the height of the panels, and that will cost more.
