"Being an architect, we have tried countless times over the years to find affordable systems that have a break even point that makes sense. For years, photovoltaic systems were not fitting the bill. Now with the leasing programs, payback for my clients homes as well as mine is less than five years which is outstanding." This homeowner and architect was excited about solar when it reached a financial turn back point that made sense for him.  When asked what the best part of his system was, he replied it's "Saving us money!"  Other than solar, this homeowner has a geo-thermal heating system at his home.
