Was it worth it? My fiance and I are planning on buying a house within the next year and are considering the option of going solar. We are in Southern CA(Bakersfield) and are curious if it is truly worth the investment? I have a colleague that said they have to pay a power adjustment of roughly 4,000 dollars twice a year, which seems excessive and counterproductive. The goal would be to save on energy costs. We will essentially have NG powered appliances(stove, dryer, and water heater).
